My draft of this post on Saturday:
It’s just June here in East Texas and it’s already so hot!
It feels just like a sauna when you step outside. So humid and sweltering.
I barely left the house last weekend. I went outside to collect tomatoes from our garden — (our tomato plants are still going berserk, but our squash and zucchini have withered in the heat) — and I helped Chad hook up a trailer. That was it.
Back inside I ran to my nicely air-conditioned house set at a constant temperature of 74 degrees. Thank God for electricity and HVAC technology!
One additional comment right before publishing:
We had a wonderful rainstorm last night. Finally! It lightning’d and thundered, but I didn’t care. I was happy to unplug my phone and computers in exchange for the rain.
(Our two dogs were not quite as thrilled. Storms scare them.)
P.S. I found the above photo in a local antique mall. It’s for sale in my Etsy shop.
