It is still so very hot here but it isn't troubling me too much. I can handle dry heat just fine as long as I do my outside things in the mornings or late afternoons/ evenings. I've spent a good part of today deep cleaning the dining room and consequently wondering how wise it is to have a collection of teacups and saucers. They do collect the dust. Anyway, I am having a tea party on Saturday so it was a good time to make them all sparkly.
Once again the blue-banded bees are back ( they are late this summer just like the summer itself). There's a new batch of them each year and they choose the same chain of hearts 'branch' to sleep on each year. It is lovely to have native bees choosing to sleep on my veranda. And very interesting from a scientific viewpoint.
The weather is perfect for letter writing. I do a little every day. I do love all the wonderful and creative mail art out there travelling to and fro across the globe but truly I am not so good with it. I try to write some words of meaning and make a nice envelope but I am trying to be more creative in my presentation. Flip books, pocket letters and the like. Practice makes perfect.
This afternoon I am dealing with the zucchini glut of this week. Zucchini slice in the oven and some fritters ready to cook.
