Summer Heat (Monday morning edition)
(originally posted on blogger Sunday, edited for Monday morning, pictures the same)
Friday and Saturday were HOT. 109 degrees yesterday, 107 the day before. It was still 98 degrees at nearly 10 Saturday night! Some places in town registered higher heats than the ones I’ve given. These are record heats and it’s dry here, too. In order to keep our gardens looking as green and vibrant, we do a lot of watering.
At least yesterday was only around 100!
I’m on my way out to the garden now to get busy, which is a late start (funny how I keep getting a late start). Here, you better be out as the sun is rising if you’re going to get the job done.
On the plus, the pool feels great to the kids who went swimming for the first time this year (could have gone sooner, but schedules and all…Rosie has it in her mind that you don’t swim until summer and summer isn’t until school is over. Let us hope she does not learn that summer officially begins June 21). And I even managed to swim Sunday, although 80 is cold to this middle-aged woman.
