Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Pulled over by the sheriff

for what I ask?

I’ll let you guess.

Jay walking?
Indecent exposure, nursing?
Hydration?
Changing, dirty diapers on a hillside?
All of the above?

Care to take a stab at it?

If you guessed A … who doesn’t Jay walk.

When a baby has to eat, they have to eat!

Well it was 100 degrees when we were climbing a hill but dehydration, really? We could have been arrested, it turns out.

Sweet Sienna Grace

They say S___ runs downhill which is exactly why I don’t live too far down my road but I pity the ones below me because we have horses and manure has been known to clog our neighbors drains from the horses on our property. Sorry. about that. Ugh!


Changing diapers where ever we are is all in a days work over here.

If you guessed All of the Above you were right. We’re lucky we didn’t get hauled in. 😜

Meet Jocelyn:

We were walking our usual loop but what wasn’t so usual was the fact that it was over 100 degrees as we were making the climb up the hill. We were hot, we were sweaty, the babies were sleeping. When a sheriff stops you, all sorts of things go through your mind but you don’t expect it on foot doing a healthy activity.

She asked “are you ok”? We looked at her with one eye brow up and said “Yes of course, why do you ask? “Well, it’s really hot out”. Hmmm I thought, and you’re just noticing but said said “yeah it is, but we’re fine, we do this all of the time and we’re used to it.” It also thought how sweet of her, now don’t be so rude”. In the back of my mind I thought, oh she must think I’m old” and going to keel over any minute, which is the problem when you still think you’re young and you’re clearly not. I thought “well she’s so young, what does she know”.

We had some good laughs and proceeded to the top of the hill where she was waiting, most likely thinking I would need to be resuscitated. She said she just wanted to make sure we were ok and empathized again how hot it was. She must have thought I had Alzheimer’s too since she repeated herself which I do worry about when I can’t find my car, or find myself in the room looking for something but can’t remember what I was looking for, or have inadvertently put my purse in the fridge. I can explain, I have dog treats in my purse and the cats will chew through them if I don’t put it away somewhere inconspicuous.

We had a lovely conversation and I told her about my blog (always looking for content , us bloggers 😹) and asked if I could post her picture and talk about this to which she said sure and told us about her famous dog. She told us to be careful and after seeing her Great Dane (only in pics), I wasn’t going to argue with her.

Her Instagram is @saltygirl_beauty where you can see some beautiful pictures of her.

When we got back home Sienna, Narnical’s baby, wouldn’t stop screaming and didn’t sleep much at all for the first night and the next day was more of the same. We were starting to worry and it turns out this young Sherif knew a lot.

We looked it up and the next day when it was cool, we ran into our neighbor walking and he shared a story of walking his baby throwing up all over him from heat exhaustion.

The worrisome part was I thought “what happened to my parenting 101 skills” and I even taught pre-postnatal and baby massage. Let’s just say a little age with amnesia made me do a double take. I looked this up and it’s extremely important to remember if you have young babies or are old that you take precaution and stay hydrated. Everyone, no matter what your age, need to take precautions in extreme heat. Take cover, wear your hat and sunscreen, have water and maybe even an electrolyte and snack. If you’re really young or old, stay inside.

Here are the facts to inscribe in your memory so you don’t have the same problem as we did.

“Infants and young children who are suffering from exposure to extreme heat may show signs of faintness, extreme tiredness and intense thirst. Other signs of heat-related illness include vomiting, quick breathing and restlessness, and heat can make existing illnesses or medical conditions worse.” Read the full article here.

Thank you Jocelyn for walking our hood and stopping us to make sure we were ok. We are blessed to have you and promise never to second guess you again, especially if you have Salty Girl with you. The moral of the story is “be like Jocelyn.

Have a Fun Fri-Yay. Narnia and I are still making a dent in the ground with our shovel and pick and let me tell you, rocks and clay aren’t easy to dig through. We might wait until tomorrow to get some help with this but we are woman, we are strong and we are smart enough to get some help if we need it.

Love and laughter and hopeful lemonade,

Wow, you were really lucky. You would have died if anything had happened to the babies. It was 100 degrees for them, too. I’m not into walking when it’s over 70 and that may be too hot in the direct sun. πŸ™‚ Glad you’re all ok! πŸ™‚

Dear Lord Dear Cindy It’s Still 100 Degrees Where You Live

Thought it Was Hot in Florida yet This makes me Appreciate

our 80’s Soon To Reach 70’s Again Finally in October Fall Relief

Oh Goodness

Strolling Babies

Where The Limits
According to Health
Science Suggest 90 Degrees is
the Upper Limits For them hehe

And You
Too With SMiles

me too yet i usually
Don’t Follow the Norm

And Just Sweat it All Out
With SMiLes And plenty
of Water to Go And When i Return

Love Wearing shorts when it gets
Below Freezing As Long as There
Are Pockets to Protect my Writing Fingers

From Big Dogs on the Road With Big Jaws too Of Course
Yet When We Walk my Sister Protects Us With Her Mace Gun

Yet i Digress
God Yes Do

Keep those
Babies Cool
And Hydrated
With Mother’s Milk And SMiLes…

Not Likely Where i Live The Deputy
Sheriff’s Would Pull Anyone over Walking For

A Wellness Check Fabulous Place You Live Indeed hehe…:)

And that Deputy Sheriff Looks Like She Might be From Bad to the Bone…

You young girls are so hot, hot, hot. Cool that you shared your story. Oh gee, moderation. I can’t keep up with the fads that get out of control. For a while there was “hydration, hydration, hydration” until someone died from “water intoxication” from drinking too much water. I’m taking my cactus inside when it’s above 120 and doing the tequila cure. Be well, be cool, be hot and beautiful, and “happy trails to you” young cowgirl with youngins.

Interesting experience though. Our forefathers had lived 100F but the key was hydration. These days we indulge in everything but water. Hence, any degree we face or can face feels 20 more in summer and 20 less in winter.
