How Hot Is It??

It’s so hot that even thinking of working with wool yarn makes me break into a sweat, even with the thermostat is set on Arctic Circle and the ceiling fans are set to airplane propeller speed.  All my knitting WIPs that are wooly are on hold for now.  I can’t work up any enthusiasm in my pottery studio either, trying to get caught up on glazing and firing at 3 a.m. when it’s at least bearable to be in the garage/studio.  🥵🥵🥵

Still and all, I feel blessed – me and mine are all happy and healthy, the Bangkok bunch got back home to America to stay after five years of perpetual summer without hitch one, self quarantined for two weeks and came out the other side still healthy and still happy.  God is good.

The photo I planned to post is missing in action, but I came across one taken a couple of winters ago and is something to look forward to………

It Pays


Somehow, I’ve stockpiled 45 extra minutes of worktime this week.  This means I get to leave and start my weekend just that much sooner.  Hard work really does pay off!  Now, to decide what I’m going to do with the extra time – grocery store, yarn store, extra walk time (on treadmill as today’s high is predicted to be 106) or just going home and enjoying the cool quiet.


It’s off the charts hot, even  by Arkansas standards, and I don’t think we’ve had any measurable rain in at least a month.  Our lawn is brown and crunchy, even with daily watering and I’m glad we procrastinated getting new sod and landscaping.  Thanks be that I have a cool, air conditioned office to work in.  When I left the house this morning at 7, I saw some roofers already hard at work, they must begin work at dawn to be able to get any work done before it’s too hot.
