Beyond Hot

First – once again a thank-you to Scott Wilson for the photo.

Today is nothing like that day. Today, the thermometer outside the door (in the shade) reads 40 degrees!

It’s hot.

I picked almost 12 pounds of blueberries today on the farm down the road. Yay! Hopefully doing the same thing again next week.

Then, after lunch, the garden. Trying to keep it all watered while monitoring the water pressure constantly – my gosh. And then weeding, picking peas and raspberries and doing all the other garden chores (starting more new strawberries.)

Every few minutes, I have to pop into the cool kitchen for water – cold water and lots of it.

And I am not going to complain. Winter will arrive.

I am happy in bare feet and a tank top.

But the dogs are not allowed to walk in this. Not sure if they’re happy.

Okay – back to watering. And a salad – veggies and potatoes and all the stuff from the garden. Tzatziki dressing. And when I think I have it tough, I think of my Sweetie, working all day (8 hours) in this heat. Whew! Love him so much.
