Vines in summer

It's hot! And Thursday was a little more humid than we're used to. Sleeping last night was not very comfortable. Today is expected to be the hottest day of our little heat wave, topping out at 36ºC (96.8ºF). The people that work out in the vineyard have been starting in the early morning hours to avoid the hottest part of the day. This morning I noticed they were already out there working when I got up at 5:30; it was just barely light.

A sunny, hot, summer morning in the vineyards.

I also "work" in the morning, doing whatever chores need to be done. First and foremost is watering the vegetable garden, then the potted plants around the house and deck. I'm also still, slowly, moving things back into the den. After lunch, there's Wimbledon to watch on television while we just sit, trying not to get too warm. Today is a good candidate day to get the hose out and let Callie get soaked. She loves that.


  1. We want pics of a soaked Callie, please! :)

  2. What a wonderful tennis day! Watching Cilic vs Isner right now. Venus vs. Serena to come.

  3. I have been reading about how hot europe has been; how in the hell are the tennis players able to stand all that heat? thank the dogs and cats for central air conditioning at my house!

  4. bettyann, well, we didn't do it. It was too hot!

    cheryl, lots of good tennis to watch!

    anne marie, we have no aircon, so we have to suffer. But it doesn't last very long.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
