She knows to stay downstairs, cos the upstairs is much warmer in a long skinny house that has the long side facing east. We have a heat advisory today, with dangerously high temps and humidity.
I know to get outside stuff done early. Like picking veggies at 8AM. Little sugar baby cherry tomatoes, a jalapeno, some collard leaves (the jalapeno goes with them for supper) and several nice cukes, enough to share when I go to a meeting later.
Summer is good. Even the stinky hot days.
Hope you both take care of yourselves!
We will, thanks! We get about one really stinky hot week each summer. It’s a good afternoon to read sitting in the cool.
Same here Nancy. We did our daily walk at 8 AM to beat the heat. Cooking and music practice inside after church and a nap, then some late gardening after it cools off again. Enjoy your day-stay cool !
Same back to ya, keep cool and enjoy it.
It’s hot and humid here, too. July tends to be like that in MN and I sort of like it. I get up early, work a bit feeding the sheep fresh cut grass, letting the chickens out to forage, walking the dog. Then I walk around the gardens pulling the worst weeds as I go along. Meanwhile, there is a pot of tea on the stove on the lowest setting (like a candle). When I get back inside the tea is done and breakfast starts
I just finished pulling another row of garlic and more weeds, and turned some soil. Now it’s break time and then back out to thin plants for a little while.
All that sounds like a beautiful morning! Enjoy every minute.
High noon now so I’m in for a while. Cooking up root parsley, root chicory, carrots, onions, and garlic for lunch.
It’s supposed to be another hot and sticky day where I live. I think MaChatte has the right idea. 🙂
Yea, we have another scorcher today too. And Our Fair opens today, and I’m going over there with a group from the senior citizens center for supper. I’ll be looking for shade, at least. Keep cool!
I just checked the temp and it is almost 100 degrees! The humidity is high too so it feels like a sauna outside. UGH!! You stay cool too and hydrated. 🙂
I hope it’s a short heat wave!
