Dick and I survived July and half of August by only working an hour or so before retreating to the pool for a quick cool down. That pool is a lifesaver and makes working tolerable in this heat.
Funny thing, when I said, “Honey, let’s get a pool” five years ago, I mentally pictured one of the inflatable blue pools. Dick, on the other hand, thought and bought a permanent above ground pool. Needless to say, I’m a lucky girl. It’s one of the best investments our past-selves set up for our present-day selves – unexpectedly retired three years ahead of schedule.
The carrots sprouted! Hooray. Despite the heat the seeds were kept damp enough to send up shoots.
