It was 95 degrees hot and humid today .... too hot to go out, too hot for the pool, too hot to do anything.
Good thing it's World Cup season!
I decided to make a peach cobbler to enjoy while watching Spain and Chile play
... the cobbler was delicious
... and soccer was great!

Scoop some vanilla ice cream over and enjoy!
