Up until yesterday, we had been having a long and lovely unseasonably cool summer.  Sleeping blissfully under the duvet every night.  We had to turn the furnace right OFF because it kept wanting to start up in the morning.

I was wearing sweaters in August dammit!  I was HAPPY!

But then, yesterday, Mother Nature woke up, looked at the time and sent us a heatwave.

My hair has poufed out to dangerous levels, my pants want to fall down from the weight of all that humidity and my ankles?  Just shouldn't be seen in public.

On the plus side, the staghorn sumac we planted in the backyard a few weeks ago has finally decided it likes it here and is sending out new growth.

And Alan's on the quest for the perfect mojito recipe.  We now have two jars of mint-infused simple syrup resting on the kitchen counter. 

Because using sugar and mint leaves just wasn't doing it for him.

So what are you up to these days?

Sticking to red wine , not being a mojito sort of person . And enjoying this sudden burst of vaguely tropical weather .
