So. Hot. Out.
And though our house remains *fairly* cool, the payoff is that we create a wind tunnel with all the open doors and windows so everything falls and flies and blows all over the place. I seriously witnessed a dust tumbleweed rolling down our hallway this morning.
I'm not getting anything done either, other than making iced earl grey tea and a bit of washing up. It's simply not thinking-work weather. I just need to put my energy into a simple project for the rest of the afternoon, I think.
Hot weather instills cravings for summer food. Today I ate carrots, cucumbers & sultanas marinated in olive oil, toasted cumin, lemon, honey and harissa (the miracle ingredient). Add feta & fresh mint from the garden, throw a chair on the back balcony for sunshine basking, and I'm a happy girl.
And look at this new little friend. I like him so much I'm gonna pop him right in my mouth for safekeeping.
