The pups and I have changed our evening walks to early morning, to beat the heat. With a forecast of 105 today, that was first on the list.  Next was some watering in the garden.  Blueberries, tromboncino and yellow squash were picked.  The spaghetti squash are looking pretty rough from the temps.  I hope they'll make it.  This was the first year they were doing well, and I saw several squash on the vine this morning that were drying up.

I lived for ten years here without air conditioning, and am feeling mighty grateful to have it now.  My heart goes out to the folks that braved 118 temps yesterday, in Kansas and in our own NC mountain town of Asheville, and any folks that have to be out in these unusually high temps.  I'm giving serious consideration to breaking out the ice cream freezer today.  I can't think of a better day to make a batch of peppermint ice cream.  Stay cool and hydrated, friends!
