It is finally beginning to cool off here. We reached 87 degrees up here today. Hopefully, tomorrow will be cooler. I find this heat to completely sap my energy. I become lethargic and am useless to anyone. Then at night when it cools I have all sorts of energy and can tackle some fairly good sized projects. That means that I get my sleep schedule all mixed up for days. So..
Last night I made a batch of yogurt using whole, organic milk. It tastes perfect, no bitter taste at all. I also made a batch of jello, whipped some cream, did the dishes twice, cleaned the stove, fed my sourdough and made a batch of sourdough pancakes. Of course it was two in the morning before I slowed down enough to so any relaxing or get on the computer.
I woke this morning at about eight and got up immediately. I wasn't about to waste the cool part of the day. By the time Gloria arrived at nine thirty I was deep into my daily project. This morning it was trying to figure out how to juggle the finances after I overpaid one creditor. I will finish getting that all worked out this evening.
One of the things I did last evening was check Amazon for a portable air conditioner. The price is much too high for me to consider at the moment, but before the next hot spell I hope to have an air conditioner in my room. Since I am upstairs the heat comes up here and it is unbearable even for those who like heat. My room can reach temperature up to one hundred ten degrees or more. That just isn't good for me.
Jan, I can appreciate your frustration with those unruly children, thank you Dr Spock. Now the government has stepped in and a parent cannot use corporal punishment. From all my education and experience I would say those children are begging for attention. They are telling people they need some limits by which they can feel safe. They are acting like a baby when the swaddling clothes are removed. The baby becomes frightened and acts out instantly. I have considerable sympathy for you and for those children. Hopefully someone will intervene before too long.
I have one pea plant coming up. I am pleased to tell you it is one of the heirloom seeds that I planted. If that plant is allowed to reach maturity I will be thrilled. I am considering going into Eatonville to pick up some more seeds. I only know of one place where I can purchase heirloom seed.
Dinner is ready now so I'll talk with you later.
