Oh what a Beautiful MORNING...oh what a beautiful daaaay....

It is a GORGEOUS morning here in Alabama... I don't know why, but it is :) It is beautifully sunny, but not sweltering. There is a cool breeze in the air and the sweet smell of cut grass across campus as I walked to my office this morning. I felt like just sitting on a bench for a little while...screw work!

I saw these two little chipmunks playing. I love chipmunks. They are way cuter than squirrels and they have a lot more personality. They are more sociable with one another too. Anyways, I saw these two chipmunks scampering around. One was running all over and the other was sitting there taking a break when the hyper one just pummeled him! He got a running start and just ran right into him. It was terribly cute. Then the little chipmunk got up and chased him into the bushes. Very much so a chip & dale moment.

Anyways, I wish every morning was like this. In Alabama the weather is only summer & winter. There are like maybe 5 days of fall and 5 days of spring. The rest of that time it is nice in the morning and the late afternoon and the rest of the day sucks ass.

:) Oh, and they are already calling hurricane kristen "Killer Kristen" because of the damage in Miami. It should be heading our way next. The beaches in the panhandle (they are so beautiful...white sand, emerald green waters...) will never be the same if we keep having so many hurricanes. It is a total mess in pensacola beach. It looks like a 3rd world country there is so much damage.

In Coos Bay, Oregon, a bunch of squirrels hang out and wait for you to give them food. You just hand it to them, and they take it with their little hands, it's cute. One squirrel though was so tiny and beat up looking, he looked like a speed freak. I do agree that chipmunks are much cuter, but I never see em. :(

These hurricanes have to calm the fuck down man. Insane.

The weather here has been 100 degrees for a few days, and I'm melting.

Yesterday HAD to be close to 100 degrees here... Last week there were a couple of days that were 99 in the shade with a heat index of like 110. It SUCKS.

Yesterday, was gorgeous too (the calm before the storm!) and it was SO FREAKIN' HOT! I went outside to get the laundry from the dryer intending on going to the gym afterwards, but there was no way in hell I was going to the gym in that heat... the gym gets so hot during the summer. One whole wall is just windows and we are like little ants under a magnifying glass!

Yeah, I wish the hurricanes would STOP. Now New Orleans could be ruined!
