Triple digits everyday for the foreseeable future. We are staying indoors and eating light–except for Greg’s birthday, of course.
We just started July and that means the heat won’t let up until September. The garden is starting to show heat stress. I might see if we can rig up a shade cloth. It might not work since the shade cloth is a little too dense, but we can try it. Maybe a strange addition to the garden will keep the deer out.
I hope my US friends have a wonderful Fourth! Are you grilling or hanging out with friends?
We’ve got friends staying with us now. Good food. Good friends. Good times.
Med update on Iko: We’ve got Iko on Xanax. It’s kind of a high dosage, but the vet says dogs process it differently than humans. It seems to take the edge off his nervousness, but tonight and Monday will be the big test. We’ve had some people blowing fireworks since Friday. I hope it doesn’t get too much crazier as the holiday arrives.
