Scribble Diary: It’s Hot


It’s been a long time since I dug into my Scribble Diary, but a recent heat wave inspired me to pull it out again and have some fun.


Scribble Diary June 30, 2013

The wheel of “possible scenarios” reflects the varying degrees of a summer day in Arizona. From Friday to Sunday of last week, I’d say we were stuck in hell. At the time, I was reading The Inferno by Dante Alighieri, which is probably what inspired my interpretation of the weather. I’m still chuckling at how spot on perfect my reading choice was in relation to real life.

As for the “yet to decide” square, I’m still on the fence. One theater is playing the newest film version of Much Ado About Nothing, but driving 20 miles on a freeway full of potential heat stroke victims does not sound like fun.

The fact that I don’t have to work in the summer made the “ups and downs” chart a little tricky. I’m basically on vacation everyday, which means I’m in a constant state of “up.” However, once I took the heat into consideration it was easier to find the “downs.” For the record, I got my chocolate home before it melted thanks to smartly bagging it together with frozen peas.

Happy Birthday to my sister, who I love so much!

  1. One advantage to living in the northern prairies, we rarely get temperatures above 100 degrees, although it does happen. Hope you don’t melt or get heat stroke – that’s never good. Enjoy your summer vacation. πŸ™‚


      • That’s good! Sorry I forgot to write about how ‘cool’ your scribble diary entry was. The colors were perfect to indicate heat levels and I liked the ups & downs chart. Very cool. It actually got me dreaming about crayoning, last night! πŸ™‚


    • I did, too. πŸ™‚ I started it just before my grandma passed away and once she was gone, it was one of those things I couldn’t pick up until now. It feels good to doodle on these pages again, mainly because I know my grandma would have loved it, too.


  2. I love the Scribble Diary!

    116? I’m so sorry. I remember traveling out West once in my mid-teens in an RV. I loved it (Arizona is beautiful!), but the heat… I’ll gladly take the 130% humidity here any day.
