I started the day with a lightweight long sleeve turtleneck sweater
that was exchanged for a t-shirt at noon. I was making folks feel
hot just looking at me. But I was comfortable until I stepped
outside. It was starting to warm up. Okay, I got it. The day
passed quickly and soon the office could be closed and I could
spend some quality time in the garden. The air temp was 94
and the heat index was 99 but I needed to pick peas, zucchini,
broccoli and spinach. I found 18 kohlrabi that were just the
right size. After an hour, I headed home to finish supper and
tend to the flowerbeds that all needed watering. There will
be a short cooldown tomorrow and Friday before it heats up
again for the weekend.
The corn leaves are really curling and the farmers are getting
concerned. It really needs to rain soon and there are only
slight chances of thunderstorms for the next week. I may worry
about my garden but this is their livelihood and so much hangs
in the balance.
So we will all keep plugging along and trust that, in the end, it
will all turn out right. For now, at least, we are safe from the
fires that are impacting so many lives.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic Friday. HUGS!
