We're having record-breaking temps here in BC this weekend. Yesterday, we got up to about 90 at our house - without air conditioning. It was a clear, bright day, and teh sun just beat down. Slightly reminiscent of Texas. Except Ft. Worth has been well over 100 degrees for the past week. We may get close to those temps today, in the mid-90's, but we did wake up to clouds this morning. Still hot, but not quite as sunny, which helps a little. I've covered the front windows with dark quilts and comforters during the morning, and this afternoon we'll move them to the back windows. Our living room's back wall is virtually all glass, containing two double sliding glass doors (why in the world they made the whole wall glass, I'll never know!), and this wall faces west. The sun comes in and makes it hot in the house even on cooler days, so yesterday was nearly unbearable. So we'll block out as much of the sunlight as we can, close the doors so the hot air won't get in, and turn on the fans. We ended up going out to the patio at 10:00 last night to cool off. The heat wave is supposed to last through the middle of next week, but we're leaving for camp Monday morning. It will be hot there, but we'll be nearer the water, which hopefully will give us a bit of a breeze. Even our nice breeze is absent this weekend!
Other than the heat, we're in full preparation for camp - washing clothes, packing suitcases, buying snacks, making sure everyone has enough of everything, measuring out shampoo and soap. I made Beth a couple of new skorts, but one of them I messed up on the waistband really bad. If I'm going to have trouble with something, it's usually the waistband. The rest of the skort looks great, but that waistband . . . I'm going to have to remove it and make a new one. It's that bad.
That's it for now. I want to get some more work done before the heat of the day begins. Have a good weekend!
