Rain and Microwaves!

It has been HOT!! Two weeks ago, it got up to 125 a couple of days! It has been realllllly hot! Then, all of a sudden, we had a "cool front". It was 100-105 every day and it really felt cool outside - yes, I know, crazy hunh? THEN..... yesterday and today is RAINED!!! It has felt GREAT!!! Here's a pic of what our street looked like when it rained yesterday :)

On another note... WE NOW HAVE A MICROWAVE!!! When we lived in M-town, our kitchen was small and could only have an oven or a microwave - so we ended up getting an oven... Some of our good friends just moved back to the states, so we bought their microwave from them (thanks J&K!). The problem is, we haven't had one in 2 years, so we sort-of forgot how to use one :)
haha! no, I didn't put a metal cup in the microwave :) (I did remember about that) but for our first use of the microwave, Adam tried to pop a bag of popcorn and really burnt it (that's why there's that nice brown spot on the back)... Then, the next day, we were heating leftovers up on the stove...and afterwards realized that we didn't need to make a bunch of new pots dirty, all we needed to do was stick it in the microwave. hahaha! Oh well :) We're going to have to get used to the conveniences of the microwave again :)

Today was the best day outside! I forgot how pleasant our city can be. It's cool you guys got a microwave.

Oh, and happy father's day Adam.

Before I even read the blog, I saw that picture with the can going in the microwave and got all nervous! :-)At least we can rest assured that it will get lots of use popping corn! Have you added any cool toppings recently?
I can not believe a cool front means 105 degrees- that's insane- how are you making it there pregnant- with your elevated body temp and all??????!!!
Whew! I will be adding that to my prayers for you!

So glad it rained and cooled off for you. How does the morning (all day) sickness go? Are you able to tell you are in the 2nd trimester yet?

We can totally relate on the microwave. I didn't have one the 2 years I was jman and the year we were in the states, I would forget to use it or couldn't remember times or things like that too! So, we haven't ever bought one!

YEAY for rain!! Bring on the monsoon! I'm a little jealous that you have a microwave too!! You can now actually pop the popcorn from the bag, instead of emptying it into another pot!!! that rocks!
