Hot Day

I am not a fan of hot weather. Both Joel and I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and have come to realize that we have about a 10 degree temperature tolerance. Below 65 degrees and we whine and above 75 degrees we whine. We have no desire to go to hot places for vacations. Iceland sounds great. And we particularly hate it when the temperatures go from the 50's to the 80's over night. Actually the trouble with our climate is that it never stays hot long enough to acclimatize. By the time I've stopped feeling faint a cool air mass comes in from the ocean and the temperature drops. So today was pretty miserable. The thermometer at home says it got up to 85 while we were at market. Sheesh!! But it is supposed to cool off and rain in a couple of days. Typical.

So I thought in aid of cooling I would post a picture of our pond. It is so pretty this time of year. By the end of August we have pumped all the water out of it to irrigate the garden and it is a mud hole. It is our main source of irrigation water as our well doesn't produce enough water per minute to water the gardens. We are set up with a drip irrigation system that maximizes our water use and it works great.
