jeez-it's effin hot out there! this is sick, unfair and just plain WRONG(notice the use of capitals!) it's still the god damn month of may- and i'm rightfully pissed! it's 5:55 pm and i'm still waiting for the garden to cool so i can work in it. my peas have stopped dead in their tracks-won't go any further-not a flower and only about 15 inches tall. these are climbing peas mind you-not midget peas. the only thing that seems to be happy are the potatoes-they are kicking ass!- yes hot weather tends to make my mouth become unruly.we are at the end of our lettuce i'm surprised it hasn't bolted yet-bastard heat.it's so damn hot-and i know i'm being whiner baby-but it's the weekend-and it's too hot to do anything. can't knit, can't spin, can't garden, can't root jack, and forget house cleaning-shit! i spent the morning giving chicken butt baths-long story and i'm too bloody hot to go into the details-sorry i have no pictures but liam is sick(my action photo expert) and the chickens were already stressed out to begin with and making them wait and pose in a tub of water seemed rather cruel. i guess i'll just have to go to ravelry(one of my many drugs of choice and find some groovy new free knitting patterns.) another reason for some slight pissiness-i'm recovering from a wicked blow of poison oak- can you say "elephant woman?" here i am dressed and ready to go to town-
i did manage to spin some roving i dyed a while back- a bit earlier before the sizzle-i love this colorway-looks better in real life though:i know i should be solar dyeing but i can't even manage that-i'm pathetic!
i leave you with a photo of our teenager carey-who can still make me laugh despite my heated pissiness!!! liam and carey were playing-bank robber disguises. ummm-should i be worried?
