The weather in St. Louis has been HOT, we had one or two days of cool air, but more hot is expected. Why the weather report? Well, as nice as it would be to sit outdoors and enjoy the beauty, I find myself on the couch in front of a fan recouping from minimal time spent working in the heat.
I’ve been helping a friend paint a the inside of an un-air conditioned house, and after about 3 hours I find myself exhausted by the heat. I worked with another individual building a platform for church, and after a few hours outside in the heat, I find myself almost sick. Even working in my home office with the ceiling fan going, I find myself sapped of energy.
In the last few weeks I’ve really not done much other than work and rest. I’ve picked and eaten a cucumber – it was just OK. I picked and ate a zucchini – also, just OK. I think I picked both of them before they were ready to be picked. I’ve eaten a bunch of green beans – wonderful! I planted a few more green bean seeds since they seem pretty easy and quick to get to the good stuff. I also picked 2 snap peas – also wonderful.
For now, I’m just going to take it easy in the heat and continue to drink lots of water.
