Cool and Calm.
It was hot outside, stay in the house was the answer for me. It is good to be an elderly person, the job is looking after oneself, a luxury that I could easily afford.
Looking at the outside was very sunny, the heat was so intense and dry, all the flowers were hearting and looking sad. Before the hot heat got worst I decided to save some roses. They are so beautiful for cut flowers to fill my vase. I could not help it to cut fresh parsley as well, they are plenty in the garden now. It is a good time to be busy in the kitchen to make herb butter to keep for winter time. They freeze well, and on the cold days cooking with sauces are always a treat and the herb butter will make the dish.
It is wrapped individually in a plastic glad wrap, place all of them in a container and freeze. They are ready for me to make any sauces or add in cooked vegetables for a delicious garnish to meat or fish dishes.
It was a rather productive day and enjoyed to stay in the house away from the harsh heat.
What would you do if the day is too hot and not wanting to be away from home?
A lot of things we could do, say: light reading, learning and research what you may like to know. Catching up with letter writing which is very seldom to do these days as Email takes over the classic job. Just sent notes/letters to my grandkids and hope they get there soon. Since last year I have been learning about the sourdough bread baking, that is occupied my days but loving it. So far is so good in term of answering my curiosity, my new book about it helps me to understand better about what it is and how to make the starter, the leaven, the baking and so forth.
Summer can be very hot in this part of the world, but we could make the best of it simply doing good things whatever it suits us all. Today was hot and the choice was to Stay In.
