It seems a bit like winter in reverse. It’s far too hot to spend much time outside so we hunker down inside working on a jigsaw puzzle, playing chess, and reading.
Yesterday, suffering from Zoom fatigue after church and a great Story Circle Network board meeting, I suggested popcorn and Prime. We’re currently trying to sort out the mysteries in the Bancroft series.
We munched popcorn, and later salad and jello, following it all up with a dish of frozen yogurt. With breaks to take the dogs outside—where it was too hot to linger, though the heat felt good for a short time—the day and early evening passed gently.
We’re breaking temperature records, and expect more to fall this week. I like the heat, but this is extreme even for me. Today, after early morning watering, another mostly-indoors day. It’s kind of a shame, but that’s the way it is for now.
I’m grateful for air conditioning that’s running all day and night right now and hoping we don’t put too much stress on BC hydro which is already reporting outages in the city (I’m not sure why).
So, my friends, if it’s hot where you are too, stay cool, keep hydrated, and enjoy the gifts this heatwave brings because they are they. I promise. 🙂
