Summer Heat, Cool Apartment

Wow, how time flies! It's summertime in Chicagoland and boy, last week was hot hot hot!! The high temperature was in the upper 80's/lower 90's through the week and it even reached upper 90's last Friday.

Needless to say, Oliver and Eddie didn't spend much time outside last week. They laid around in the apartment all week long, where I made sure that the AC were cranked up high so they could stay cool inside. Water was another important thing. I forgot to refill their water bowl one morning and when my husband got home, Oliver was almost dying of thirst with his tongue hanging out :( Poor doggie, good thing he was fine and just lapped as much water that hubby just poured to his bowl as he could. Definitely will make sure that that doesn't happen again!

It's getting cooler over the weekend, although it was still in the mid 80's during the day. It also rained quite a bit, cooling everything down nicely. We were just being lazy this weekend, lounging around in the apartment, watching tv and taking many naps! :)
