Friday already. That was a fast week, don’t you think? I am tired of this, though, aren’t you?:
Sunday should be a cooler day finally!
I went out for an early walk this morning at 7 am and I was soaked after 20 minutes. Yuck.
I made up a banana breakfast pudding and let it sit out to cool down while I got to work (and had the Tour on). While I waited for that to cool off, I made up some iced coffee!
Yep, decaf. Still going on the decaf. I don’t notice it much now. I think because I am still drinking coffee (yes, I do realize there is trace caffeine in decaf) and I get the psychological boost from it.
I mixed up some peanut flour with honey and water and topped my breakfast with that. Then I saw the coconut in the fridge and decided for a Friday treat!
I like to live dangerously…
I was not super hungry for lunch because of the heat, so I just put some stuff on a plate and called it good.
Don’t you love meals like that? That was a very juicy nectarine, too!
Now time for this week’s garden blooms. Half of the garden is all full of color right now. Gotta wake up the other half!
Next week the butterfly bush will finally be in bloom. Gheesh!
Sunsprite rose is full of blooms right now. This year has been the best year so far for this bush. It likes its home.
I can smell this when standing near the garden. It’s lovely.
Bi-colored snap dragons by the butterfly weed.
My new Green Envy ecchinacea. I am a little disappointed that it isn’t more green, but maybe that will come out as the blossoms mature? Not to mention somebody was nibbling on these!
Galliarda. These pretty much bloom all summer long.
The daylilies are starting to wind down.
Even more blooms on the french marigolds.
I love the creamy poms on these.
White swan coneflowers.
I did not plant these here. They just seeded themselves and I left them. That’s why a garden is always evolving. Plants always find the place they like the best to grow.
A couple new flowers will be open next week, too. Can you wait? I can’t 😀
Another cool snack for today:
I was so productive with work that I finished up my day at 4 pm! Yippee! I could then get some guitar playing done before dinner.
Speaking of dinner, I grilled up some more chicken and had it with BBQ sauce, laughing cow and caramelized onions.
All chores are done, so I can relax tonight! Too bad it is so hot or I would go out riding. I will be having some chocolate, though. I will have that after I sit down and open up my Google reader for the first time today…
Question: How are you surviving the heat wave?
