When I was little, on the east coast, it started getting hot in early May. (I remember going back for a rare visit to my folks and standing by the car to go back to the airport. May 6 and it was 90 degrees with 70% humidity at 6 fucking am. I could not get back here fast enough.)
Here in Seattle, we have very few 90 degree days at all. And they are confined, usually, to August. And we never see 70% humidity at all. If it hits 30, we're all dying here. Again, August. It used to turn cool over Labor Day weekend. I mean sweater-required cool with all the hot behind us. But, in the past few years, I know I'm still bitching at least the first two weeks of September. But, then it is really is gone. Whew.
Starting the day with a swim really does help. No matter what it's like outside, inside the pool, the water is clear and cool and cleansing and refreshing and the perfect way to start the day.
If I can keep the sewing room cool enough there will be lots of sewing. A doll I made yesterday gave me the idea that making a couple of dolls with hijabs would probably be a nice thing to do. I figured out, during my swim this morning, a good way to do it. I'm not going to try and give them flowing covering garments but a head piece for a few would be nice, I think.
That's really my plan today. Sew and stay cool. Baseball is back tonight. I already lost the ground I made up in bear production somehow. Today's schedule calls for completion of bear #5 and that will happen but I wanted to get ahead and I didn't... yet. Maybe I can fix that tonight during baseball.
