And when it's 100+ degrees and only a couple of window a/c units to rely on, you're only hanging on by a thread. They really can only do so much when faced with these temperatures (and a house full of busy boys). If it hasn't cooled off my the time DH goes back to work tomorrow, I'm going to start making phone calls to get central a/c installed. Yes, I am that sneaky and desperate... heat does that to me. We talk about getting central air every year but these insane heat waves tend to come short spurts so just as we're ready to cave, it cools off.
It's really too hot to go out in the middle of the day (that and the fact that my youngest just can not handle the sun), so we need to wait until later in the day to take action.
Meanwhile, I've gotten some work done on my Retro Redux Shrug from Lace Style. The yarn, Berroco Comfort, is a great inexpensive substitute for worsted weight yarn. I'm very pleased so far.
Also pictured is some Madelinetosh yarn that I'd ordered as part of my little spree last week. The colors are wonderfully soft and subtle.
Enjoy your Labor Day. I'm going to go back to worrying about how hot it will be today.
