I'm taking a break from my shawl knitting for now
with a bit of Wollmeise in the color Orient
A few days ago the temperature here was 77 degrees. That was 5:07am. So you can imagine how the rest of the day turned out. Like the entire country, it's been unbelievably-miserable-science-fiction-like hot.
Michigan where I was born and raised can get hot but at least the air circulates thanks to all of the surrounding lakes and rivers. Not here, not in Athens. There seems to be no air, just a stand still heat. I go outside and feel as though a burning building is following me around or that I have stepped into an oven. It's pretty bad.
I stopped buying plants for my garden a couple of weeks ago. I planted a beautiful Holly Hock in the early morning, came back from work and 90% of it was burned and dried. I water my garden late at night or before the sun rises but some days it doesn't matter.
Well, I guess we all have our Summer of 2011 Heat Stories though.
No matter how warm it is gets, enjoy your day !
