Early sunless Summer mornings, following the thunderstorms and rain
of evening and through the nighttime hours, bring heavy clinging
air and windows blurred by outdoor condensation. The porch was
almost invisible today when I raised the blinds just after dawn.
The dining room stayed dark and dreary for quite a while.
Now living without my thyroid I have to take a new lifetime medicine
on arising, with no food for two hours, which for me is OK. . . . . . but
worst of all, no coffee either. Let me tell you, that is hard!
Note I'm already drying some of the hydrangeas which are fading fast in the
hot, humid garden. I also cut a few hosta seed pods and a tall gone to seed
stem of parsley to add some height, and because it's pretty.
That's it for today dear readers. I have to take the car to my great repair guys
and see if they can fix my high beams which seem to have died.
Then we are heading out to do a little necessary shopping in those always
over-cooled stores. I'll definitely be throwing on a light sweater once I leave the
almost heart-stopping heat of the parking lots. This is just not a healthy way to
spend the Summer, grrrrrrr!!!
