It is a day to stay inside here in Texas. It is wicked hot today and yesterday, too. This special warning from the wunderground website about it.
"A strong upper ridge of high pressure will strengthen over North Texas this week helping to push temperatures slightly above the century mark... particularly over the southern parts of North Texas. The rainfall from last week will only add to the humidity values and will result in heat index values each afternoon between 100 and 105 degrees."
These are the days when we get out outdoor chores done early in the morning and spend the rest of the day in the house, until it cools down in the evening.
It was much like this yesterday when I thought it would be so kind of me to transfer some ferns to the back flowerbed for my husband who was at his parents dealing with some drama over there. While doing my good deed, not only did I nearly have a heat stroke, but my glasses fell off and I couldn't find them.....well, because I didn't have my glasses. I was nearly in tears by the time he got home. He found them almost at once.
Today is the yucky day in the rheumatoid arthritis drug regimen, but so far it has been ok. My daughter called just a while ago to tell her dad that there were some tamales that he needed to get from her apartment for our dinner tonight! She is always thinking of me. *LOL* I may just wait a while....like a day or two and not press my luck today.
My knitting group was so fun last night. None of us went to the Knit in Public event this past Saturday, because it was in the 90s and we ain't stoopid. Anyway...we knit in public every Monday evening inside where it is cool or warm depending on the right season and we can eat and have a soft drink. People come by our table and chat with us, we tell them to bring their yarn and join us next week or any Monday evening. Last night a very sweet elderly (well, older than us) gentleman watched us for a good long while as we laughed and told our stories and knitted. He listened and asked the lady who was closest to him what she was making. She told him and he was so nice and told us what a good example we were. He said all kinds of nice things about our knitting and having such a good time. It may have brought back memories of his mother or wife and her friends knitting together.
