I am feeling better today.. made sure I had some sodium included with all of the green iced tea and juice I drank yesterday. the disorientation, faintness and nausea/vomiting abated later in the afternoon. DD watered the berries, I was not going to go out again except when we drove to my workplace to get my car home.

This morning I was up early, wrote out checks for more bills, go them in the mailbox, picked some raspberries, watered again, pulled a huge pile of weeds and hauled them to the fence, filled the birdbath. This was at 7 am.. I was covered in sweat, came indoors to cool down and put the berries in the freezer.
I also just put a whole chicken in the large crockpot on the deck. Dinner for later with some steamed rice and salad.
I cannot do any more outdoors work today. Forecast is 91 degrees. Yesterday was forecast 92, it hit 95. Humidity is 100% and holding there 24 hours. low of 82 at night..

    Umph. Good plan. No more heat exhaustion. I think we get more susceptible as we get older. Anyway, I know that ooollldd riding mower I was using today overheated 3x! :)

    It was 97.9 here yesterday and was 72 when I got up. I could take that but not the humidity emoticon emoticon
