Friday Shuffle - Easy Does It Edition

I'd like to say that even though it's been unusually hot here for the past few weeks, heat induced crankiness and general bad moods have been kept at bay in my home. Maybe it's because we've been very easy going and not expecting much of ourselves in terms of what gets done. It's too hot to perform normal chores and errands so we've chosen to stay in whenever possible, nap when one isn't sweating too profusely, cook little, not worry about things like the floors being less than absolutely tidy, drink plenty of water and iced tea and in general be lazy. It's like having a Mexican siesta break that doesn't end. Instead I fill my time doing only what has to be done (in other words, just taking care of B), reading and knitting. I've been able to finish a pair of socks (and try them on without wigging out from the heat too much) and have started on another pair - this one in various hues of cool, happy green.

The floors are a little funky but we're happy, hydrated, and trying to catch any available breeze.

Let's shuffle...but slowly so as to not work up a sweat.
  1. Something To Talk About - Badly Drawn Boy

It's hot here in "rainy" Seattle too. Temperatures just reached 38C (100F+) and it's only 3 PM. The hottest time of day here is between 4 and 5 PM.

Sitting on the couch for the weekend is in order.

Its been 105 to 111 this week, it was 103 today and we had a sprinkle of rain . I plan to hide in my airconditioned bedroom this weekend. Maybe I should haul out the knitting too.
