And The Heat Goes On. . .

Oh my, it is hot out there today! Our heat index should reach 110 degrees. I'm not sure what it will reach on Sunday, when our expected high is 105. We usually have low humidity with these kind of temps, but this time it's decided to stick around.

Our work on the porch is going rather slowly. Some of the boards still need to dry out and the heat makes it hard to work out there very long, anyway. I am looking forward to sitting out there when the weather cools down in a few months. I still haven't taken a peek at our porch swing we have stored away up in the barn~sure hope it is still in good enough condition to use.

I've enjoyed watching the dragonflies in the evenings lately. They are such friendly little things--always flying around us, curious as to what we are. They drift from plant to plant as leisurely as possible--and there we are banging away at a bunch of boards. I'm sure they think we have some sort of problem!

Stay cool!



  1. The dragonflys are beautiful! Love the colors on them.
    I know you are going to enjoy your porch.

  2. Trying to stay cool! I just harvested a basket of hydrangea blooms. Pretty warm out there, just doing that tiny little job!

    The dragonflies are beautiful!


  3. Dragonflies are one of my favorite things - very high on the list. I don't know where you are in Arkansas but in Hot Springs it got to 110 on my deck yesterday, and that was on the lake side of my house - the coolest part! Blessings, marlene

  4. I do feel for you. I know how this heat is. Hope all is well. God Bless.
