I think today is the last day of the heat and humidity. Thank goodness. I pushed my ride to before breakfast the last 3 days. That’s always the case for Wednesday bagels, but on Tuesday and today I was up with the sun riding. That’s early enough since I don’t ride in the dark. John doesn’t seem to bothered by humidity, so he doesn’t come out this early.
I was stopped for a few minutes taking pictures and a jogger asked me if I was taking a picture of the sunrise 😀 I think she saw the camera pointed in her direction (and I hadn’t even noticed her at all).
She is that tiny blip on the right side of the road.
I came home and John had baked some Bisquik donuts! I was agreeable to that for breakfast.
There may or may not have been another one on this plate…
Since we have radiators for heating, we can’t have central air in the house. Honestly, there have only been a couple days where it felt hot inside. The solid cement walls help keep the house moderated all year, which is a big change from our old house. We have a window AC unit for our bedroom, though. However, our basement is wonderfully cool.
It’s been too hot to work in the garden much, but I did start working on the Jenny Lind trunk in my basement work room. I am so pleased at what a beauty this one will be. What I thought was brass is actually copper! I got out some Barkeeper’s friend and started cleaning the straps off.
I was saying to John that cleaning up a trunk is sort of like wiping a clean spot off of a really dirty window and seeing what is really outside.
This is going to look so cool when it is finished. And I am not selling this one. No way – even though I could probably get good money for it. I just like it too much.
I was working on the chair to get that finished up. I just have to do the arm covers and then the piping to cover the nail heads. Of course, Pixie had to join in and help.
I really need to tip the chair on its side to do the arms, but then Pixie curled up and I didn’t have the heart to move her (suckah!!), so I started working on the trunk. Good thing I have eighty million projects I could be working on…
Thankfully this heat is breaking just in time to have a really nice weather weekend.
