DAY 10

The lemon grass looks pretty good, despite the ridiculous weather we have been 'enjoying'.  I realize that everyone is complaining about this crapola summer, so let me throw my hat into the ring with the rest.  Where did those lovely summer days disappear to?  You know the kind that I'm talking about - a cool crisp start, a little dew under foot - the gradual rise of temperature, accompanied by a good breeze - big fluffy clouds skirting across an indigo sky - the total absence of humidity.  These are the days that I remember.  We're probably to blame, what, with our big fat wasteful footprints - no doubt we have melted essential glaciers and sent Mother Nature scurrying for a pass to Mars.  I don't know.  I do not know what is to become of us.  
Thank God for knitting and quilting - at least we have something to do with our hands while we wait for Whatever Is Next!!!!

Oh, I love that picture. At least it looks cool and inviting like the summers we remember.

It is hot now but I expected Aug to be hot here at the edge of the desert. So I can't complain. Much. I am glad for AC so I can knit inside while it is 105 degrees outside!!

I know where you are coming from -- I worked thru this miserable day in the 90's with high humidity--as I have been doing since June....with an AC system that barely works.

and I keep wondering when the heat wave will go away. We had thunderstorms predicted all day and night yeterday and got nothing!

Strange, strange weather this year!

We've never had that type of summer day. I'm not entirely sure that Texas has every had those sorts of days.
