What the heck? We go from April to August over night? Yesterday the cool rains pulled out and the sun came up and suddenly we were in the 80’s, and HUMID. I was glad that the family wasn’t here working out in the sun!
I had to space out my chores with long knitting bouts in between to make it comfortable, but I did get the bulk of the outdoor chores done.
Trees cut out of the roses, cherry tree pruned back away from the deck a bit, some blackberries cut back where they were creeping into the area mom cleared last summer.
Tied back the weigela, so it can grow straight and tall. Pleasantly surprised to find that I can easily walk under the string to get into the back of the garden.
After a long break with knitting, I put up the trellises. Sadly by then I was standing in hot sun, and just tying strings to them nearly killed me, it was so hot!!
Still had the pool to do, but decided to wait until later, as during mid-day it is in the sun.
Back to lunch and the knitting.
Just as I was getting ready to get in the pool, I noticed it was growing unexpectedly dark. And then I heard rumbles. Sure enough, a thunderstorm rolled through! So, no pool last night, but the thunderstorm cleared the air so sleeping wasn’t impossible.
Progress on the knitting? I would say so! All that is left is 23 rows of one sleeve. I will finish that this morning. Then blocking and weaving in ends, which will wait until the weather changes. Almost there! I think I can call this one done. And in June! Days before TDF starts again!
That’s all I did. No laundry, no cleaning up. It was enough.
Today looks less productive. I will knit the sleeve, start the laundry, head to the dump with A. We have a new transfer station, only open Tuesday and Saturday. We thought we would go together to get the lay of the land.
Then I am off to Whorls and Purls for the afternoon, and we will have our annual dinner gathering right afterwards.
That’s it for a hot Saturday!
