Our weather has been so hot. Last week was near 100 every day so we finally cleaned the filters in our window AC units and turned them on. Opening up the house every morning to get some fresh air through until 10:00 a.m or so when the outside is no longer cooler then the house.
We don’t have central air, but we have a very small 700 square foot house so a unit in the kitchen, one in the office and one in the bedroom means we can have them on for the room we are in or all three at once and they meet in the middle and cool it pretty quickly.
It also means just about everything I cook except breakfast has been on the grill. Just this weekend was a chicken, sweet potatoes, salmon and spaghetti squash. Thing is I think this is the absolute best way to cook that squash now. Luckily LA means I can generally grill every day except the four days in February when it rains.
I’m kidding, it rains more than that…..I’m pretty sure.
Summer also means early morning weeding. Because really after 10:00 a.m. there is just no use. Sunday morning I had to be up for work at 6:15 to turn to the next shift. I had left my work clothes out and went outside and weeded for several hours before it was just too darn hot. I also had to be back on line for work at 2:30 and that ended up being pretty much a full shift. I was so glad I got something done in the morning.
Oh and there is yet another kitten. My brother just took the three ferals to the shelter for us and one we had never seen before shows up. My theory is that with all four nursing the momma was producing milk, once it was down to just this one she stopped so it had to come for kibble. It is super skittish. I can’t even get close. I tried with treats and a rope toy and went around the shed back and forth it would dash the other way. I’m sure it was quite comical. Either way, we now need to catch this one and hope the mysterious 5th kitten never shows up.
