The heat and humidity.
Was outside until quite late last night. Bailing hay, watering the garden, attending chicken issues ( they hate this heat).
This morning after breakfast I got right to painting trim in the spare bedroom. One side has two to three coats on the trim and the other side one coat now. I ran out of trim paint. A good excuse to have teenager take us for a drive into the village to get more. She is learning to drive and won't do it with her Pa. I have more patience she tells me. HA! She has no idea how many times I break the floor with my foot while she drives!
I have weeded some of the garden and hung three loads on the line. Stripped beds, but have yet to remake them. An evening chore.
I think the garden will need more water by evening. The issue with watering in the evening are the mosquitoes. I'm pretty good with them but the rest are not. It becomes my job.
I am making this a Racheal Ray recipe tonight with leeks, beets and potatoes from the garden. Hope it is good.
