You can see what I'm working on below, which should be the last improvement to make. I love this feature. I love all the little features I've added to this room.
A little ornate woodwork
But the heat has sapped my energy for now. I don't feel like driving half an hour to town, for the few remaining parts needed. Sometimes I can get tetchy from the heat. I spent the first 7 years of my life in Darwin, in the Northern Territory.
Darwin had the kind of sapping heat, days on end, like we're experiencing presently, in our temperate region. I got heat stroke once at school, and I reckon it must have fried my patience metre, or something. I can handle the heat, so long as I don't have to do a lot. So all my projects are on hold, at the moment.
I love green!
Although, I have enjoyed some knitting time, because it doesn't require much energy to sit and knit. Making dishcloths helps to pass the time, as the heat runs through the course of the day. We only have ceiling fans, but I'm glad we don't have air-con now. We had it at our last house, in town. Going outside was a lot harder, once I sat in air-conditioning all day.
Now when the sun goes down, the cool of the afternoon brings us outside the house, and I think it's healthy to feel what the outdoors is feeling. I like looking forward to going outside in the afternoons - like, I look forward to our home-made ice creams from the freezer.
Making mango ice-pops
Or eating a chilled bowl of fruit salad in the middle of the day. Fizzy kombucha, is a refreshing beverage, to help bring a little zing back to my day as well. I remember winter isn't far away, and I'm sure at some point, this heat spell will break. I'm also looking forward to hearing the raindrops on the roof again, which inevitably comes with such heat.
I hope you're staying cool in the summer heat. Or staying warm, if you're in the northern hemisphere. The seasons will be changing for both of us, soon. And maybe, I'll get that room finished too.
