What a weekend, and I don’t mean in a fun way either.
It has been much too hot here in Melton to do much except water the garden, and I have been too overheated to do much anything else.
- Saturday: 41°C (105.8°F)
- Sunday: 43°C (109.4°F)
- Forecast for Monday: 36°C with a late cool change
The only good thing about Saturday was the amount of work I managed to perform in such a short space of time. This was because it was quite cool in the morning.
I moved my new cheese fridge into place, so that I can start to make cheese in the summer. It is a small bar fridge, to which I am going to plug into an external thermostat. Just have to wait for a cool weekend so I can get stuck into cheese making again.
All the outside area were given a good clean, and I watered everything green I could see.
I also set up a new solar shower that Kim bought on-line. She wants to wash off after swimming on her new little piece of deck that I constructed out of scrap. By the time I had finished setting it up (but not yet installed), the heat of the day was upon me, so I retreated inside to do a little handy work. I plan to install it on Wednesday when it is a little cooler.
As we have just finished decorating Ben’s room and the spare room, I fitted a new hook on the back of each door so people could hang their robes on. Not that there is much call for something as hot as that at the moment!
Then that was it. I retreated to my office, and sweltered through the heat working on the blog, popping outside occasionally to check on the chickens.
Not much else to tell. Pretty boring stuff I know, but what else can you do when it is just this hot?
Rock on some cooler weather. Please.
