I never used to be so fixated on the weather report, but now that I have a job that invoves 2-5 hours outside every day, the weather is very important. Mereth and I don't mind the cold, or even the rain, but it's not fun on hot days to be wearing a helmet and protective vest, and trying to keep the sun out of the eyes. So this forecast makes me feel very relieved.
That's the end of summer in sight there, and the temperatures range from a high of 93° to a low of 79° ; no 108° degree days amongst the lot. Everyone here is getting very tired of heat and having to water the gardens, and it seems that the last weeks of it are harder to bear. But 93° is not unpleasant, so if that's the worst we get in the next 10 days I'll be happy. Delerious even! My gardening chores will be much lighter if I don't have to water every day.
I'm having fun cutting strips for the madder quilt, and I'm justifying it by pointing out to myself that four boxes of fabric will be ready to leave by tonight. Whatever I haven't done by then will have to wait.
Would it be wrong to make another test block?
