Everything is hot and dry.
The breeze is hot, the cold tap runs hot, not warm, hot! and hot for minutes, all surfaces, seats and belongings are hot.
We switched on the air conditioner for the first time this evening, we fear ghastly power bills. It accomplished very little, possibly needs servicing, possibly it cannot actually cope with reducing air temperature from its intake point next to a radiant hot brick wall. N was given two evaporative cooling fans for her birthday and Christmas gifts which have been helping somewhat.
L’s first lesson went swimmingly, 9 more to go. Pool water was warm of course.
Finally won the battle with the wheelbarrow wheel by getting the new tire and tube put onto the old rim. The wheelbarrow is back in action with an extensive list of jobs pending.
Some links to share:
Great short film about art and motivation seen over coffee this morning:
A delightful procedural toy, the download of which works best.
Plodding away at a few pieces of art, struggling with exhaustion in the evenings and responsibilities, jobs and heat during the day.
Fabulous and extraordinary human being.
