Hot, Hotter and Hottest…

PerrySmartrollerThis weather is absolutely horrendous PEOPLE!

Our house remains an oven with temperatures in the high 80’s at night, and 90’s during the day. Maybe we should start sleeping outside.

All I have wanted to do is lay around the house, pant and eat ice cubes.  Mom tried to get me to do my Smartroller today to feel better but I just could not muster the energy.

It is too hot to write this and the debates aren’t till Wednesday so stay tuned.

I need to get Dad up and outside to hose me down.

Love and Coolness,

Perry

I had to SHARE my Turf!

IMG_2236It sure is hot in Santa Monica and I mean HOT, humid and did I say hot?

Yesterday was that godchild’s 1st Birthday and the parental’s had a party in his honor. What? When it is my birthday there is not much fanfare at all. OK, maybe a special treat, a photo and a nod on Facebook, but not a gourmet meal of recipes they are creating for the new cookbook and all the fixins.

People came from as far away as Georgia, Missouri and Italy. I of course was on my best behavior and tried to steal as much attention from the little man as I could. I decided to lie in the middle of the party and had people just walk over me. They were in MY backyard after all.  I made sure everyone could see me and ooh and aah over me versus that little person – I’m at least 3x his size so I figure that counts for something!

All in all, it was a good time and everyone enjoyed the gourmet food and satisfying conversation.

Mom has been busy with trainings, analyzing recipes and writing and Dad is still pretty sick but we are all holding tight together in this heat.

Please send your ice cubes to Santa Monica and maybe a few treats for me as well.

Love

Perry

The Big Red Truck

IMG_2001The last few weeks I talked about how HOT it was here in Santa Monica….well Casa de Perry has put a new meaning to HOT and it is not flattering but more of parental unit embarrassment.

Yep that’s right folks my Father decided it would be OK to create a recipe with a cast iron skillet. You know where I am going with this don’t you?

The next thing you know the alarm is going off and Dad is flagging this thing on the ceiling and opening up windows. I just looked up and ignored the fan fare.

Life resumed to normal until we heard the sirens.  Since we live in LA it is nothing to hear these cacophony of sounds. However, it kept getting closer and closer…so close in fact it was in the front of the house.  A BIG RED TRUCK in front of our house – HOW FASCINATING!

Next I hear Mom tell Dad that he needed to deal with this. I watched him go outside and have to tell the Big Red truck it was a false alarm.

IMG_1998Oh the pure joy of watching Dad be embarrassed…

Pery 1 – Parental Unit ZERO, oh that should be Dad ZERO

And it’s been a very pleasant 70 degrees in Santa Monica today, so no fires to report on today!

BTW – in case you missed it it was National Puppy Day this week and MY baby picture got lots of likes on Facebook as it should.  I’m posting that picture here just in case you missed it.

It’s SMOKIN’ HOT in Santa Monica

photo-4This past week there has been record high temperatures in Santa Monica and I have just been a lounging dog in the middle of it all. We do not have what Dad calls AC in Casa de Perry so the car rides have been a refreshment from the heat.

One day Dad and I did have some fun and shot wedding pictures with Uncle Andrew and I got distracted with a marrow bone which we know is good for my skin, and health besides keeping me out of trouble.

Dad has NOT been playing enough with me – this school thing needs to be over NOW as I am not getting all the attention and affections I deserve. I heard he only has 4 more weeks till big graduation day so he can get his degree in photography, and we can all move on with our lives.

photo-3Mom was really happy this week as she had a cool Registered Dietitian intern Caitlin from Pepperdine to help with promoting our gluten-free cookie book which you remember I’m featured in.  In case you forgot it’s all about ME.

I want it to be June Gloom in Santa Monica soon so if you have some COLD in your part of the world please send me some. Everyone’s been talking about global warming and I have no idea what that is – all I know is I need some global cooling here.

Ok – the Weather Weimaraner has reported faithfully for the week. Till next week people!

Love ME
