Knowing today was going to be another cooker I started out just after 7am to make macaroni salad, chopped last of fresh celery (3 cups), hard boiled 4 eggs, cooked small sea shells, and cut into small pieces about 1.5 c of sharp cheddar cheese. Dressing was 3/4 yogurt and 1/4 mayo and sour cream, lots of dill, some garlic salt and mixed salad seasoning. Enuff for supper tonight, tomorrow and maybe even Sunday, only have it out of the fridge long enuff to put some in my bowl then straight away back to fridge. Not used to the extreme heat the valley is having just now, 88°F (31°C), and even warmer over the next couple of days.
I did get in nearly an hour at spinning wheel before it got really hot. Spinning more of the merino-nylon mix in a colorway I call sand. Had originally thought it would be a good color for the faces of the dolls I am hoping to kit next winter, but once spun colors are way to variegated and a quick dip thru a tea dye bath might help.
Almost to hot to even knit, a/c in car sure felt good when I went to get my mail.
