It is pretty stupid hot and humid here. Heat index is supposed to be 101 or above today. It is hard to get motivated to do anything. I don't even feel like knitting at work today! Last night my hands felt sticky while I was knitting. It's just not comfortable. Oh well, nothing I can do about it. It should break by Wednesday, I think.
Dee and I did get together for a few hours on Saturday which was nice - tea and knitting and lots of chatting. It was perfect!
The frogs continue to multiply!
There are three visible in the picture above (all on the stone part - the third is at the very top left of the photo) and a fourth one had jumped in the water just as I snapped this picture.
We are finally going to have a fig on our tree!!
I love figs. Several years ago Fletch bought me a fig plant that was supposed to produce fruit by the time it was a foot high. That never happened. And the fig got bigger and bigger and out of control. It is now over at Colin's home. Fletch bought another fig this year - one that is winter hardy for our area! He planted it in front of our vegetable garden and it has done very well. Last Friday Fletch spotted the beginning of a fig!
Finally, the first of our potatoes from the garden:
We did not plant many and we won't get a lot, but boy were these tasty! I just boiled them yesterday while a roast was in the oven. There is something about tasting a potato that you dig out of the earth. So delicious!
That's all I've got for today. I hope to do some knitting tonight, but we'll see how that goes.
