I thought I should post something soon before someone thinks we have lost our way through the humid haze of Florida. We are not lost. We are just trying to survive the heat wave that has been breaking Florida's record this past month. It is certainly hot here! It is a little more than what I had wished for.... I know, I know...be careful of what you wish for! Then again, I wasn't asking for a hot summer just a warm sunny dry winter. After three wet winters, I felt we were due a warmer winter and I am still looking forward to this winter in Key West.
In the meantime, we are dealing with the heat wave by getting out early before the temperatures rise. When it gets into the 90s with a heat index of 100+ with humidity, it is very hard to stay enthused about taking a walk around the park. We do get a break from the heat in the late afternoons or early evenings with some terrific thunderstorms that shake our rig and a quick dump of ice cold rain.
Still, I have no complaints. I prefer this over our freezing winds and rains where I had to wear layers just to take the garbage out to the dumpster. We have made it a habit of spending about a half hour to an hour sitting outdoors with the cats in the shade before surrendering to our air conditioned motorhome to cool off. Even the cats are getting use to the idea of going out several times a day for short periods of time. So, now it feels like there is always someone begging to go outdoors....all day long.
On The Cutting Board
I finished my first Hawaiian block with echo quilting. I started out marking the background with a water soluble pen. With this humidity, it was disappearing before I got around to the third turtle. The air erasable disappeared even faster.
Well, I better get started on making binding for these three quilts.
