Keeping cool, yeah right. It's next to impossible to be actually cool here today. It was 42 degrees C (107.6F) on the verandah a few minutes ago so I don't even want to imagine how hot it is out in the sun. My
stingy frugal self has even resorted to using the evaporative cooler.
Puss does seem to have the right idea. Napping by day and most of the night too. Then a rush of activity when things cool down in the wee hours of the morning. I do love it when cats sleep with their tongues sticking out.
Everything needed a deep water today and look what I found in the front garden. To the waterer go the spoils I say.
The osteospermum are real troopers in the heat and pretty too. Easy to be cheery when the garden is full of flowers and easy to not notice the weeds so much.
I have been eagerly writing letters. I don't know what it is about letter writing I like it so much, I just do. The postcircle wasn't enough so I have joined postcrossing and signed up with International Pen Friends(the place where I first found pen friends in the 1980s). It also means I have sweet mail to look forward to and surprise mail too. Just today a lovely Christmas and happy New year card arrived from Ruth. I think she did a wonderful job creating the nativity scene. Vickie also sent me a cheery parcel, a pincushion kit and a cute piggy card. Both cards are sitting right here in my sewing room making me smile and inspiring me to be creative. With creativity in mind, I am going to do some secret making right now in preparation for Jewells' swap. That should keep me cool and out of mischief (as long as I don't make many mistakes that is).
