You'd think that since I'm not outside due to the sweltering temps (over 90 with over 100 heat index) that I would spend more time on the computer posting up entries.
Heat is enervating. I can't work outside. I don't WANT to work inside. So I drink iced tea and read. (Lather. Rinse. Repeat.) I get stiff reading, so get up and wander around the house, looking out the windows.
Everything is is baking. I put fresh water in the bird bath this morning. It already looks scummy. Plants are wilted. Waves of heat shimmer off the asphalt driveway. Leaves on the new crabapple trees have been turning yellow and falling the past 2 weeks.
Even the squirrels have pretty much given up trying to dig up any buried stash. The ground is like concrete. The heat is slowing them down, too. One of them didn't make it across our road. I suppose I should have been more surprised when I looked out the front window and saw the body had attracted a vulture. Yep. Better to just stay inside and pay for running the A/C.
Meanwhile, the heat makes my eyes feel gummy and reading doesn't make them any better. *blink blink*
I made an effort to update the vegetable page, and now this one. But it's just too taxing to do any more. I'm going to head back to the couch and fire up the iPad and read some more. Hopefully, I'll doze off.
Back when I find some motivation.... *pant*
