I need to write more. But often times, I sit and think! What should I write about? Coming up empty-handed many a time, I decided that today I would write something about nothing. So here goes. How do you do that? Another dilema, but because it is about nothing, hey, I have nothing to lose.
Today it is hot; registering 31 degrees outside. That is almost unbelievable weather for September and in B.C. I remember when we came to Vancouver Island, approx. 8 yrs. ago; it took me 2 summers before I felt I could put on a pair of shorts. The weather was always a bit cool, it seemed. (even though some people wear shorts all year long out here). Such a contrast to this year; it has been the best summer for lovely, hot weather. That is, if you like it hot and I do.
However, I am often not sure of what to do on days like this. For one thing, I am not a gardener; I have tried and thought I would like it; but alas, I do not. I do like to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. I tried to take the dog for a walk; but she wouldn't go. Really, she planted her feet firm and was very happy when I turned around to come back home. Now what?
I decided to ride my bike. I could hear my dog voicing her disapproval at being left alone, as I pulled out. I rode down town Sidney. As long as I was moving, there was a bit of breeze. But when I stopped and waited for traffic, (there are a lot of 4 way stops in Sidney) it was very hot, especially with the helmet on my head. Perhaps, I should have headed down Lochside Trail. At any rate, I came back home, to the somewhat cooler temperature of my house. Thank goodness for insulation. I am enjoying a nice, cool glass of water and writing this post.
Now, I am going to read. No cooking, baking today. I think we shall have a nice, big salad. Perhaps, my favourite kale recipe!! Yum!
So what is your weather like, today? What do you do on a hot summer day?
