The northeast is experiencing record breaking heat today and it is a really good day to just stay inside. I wish I could say this picture was from my back yard but a friend took this on a trip to France a few weeks ago. It is definitely on my bucket list to go to the south of France when the sunflowers and lavender are in bloom. For now, I have to settle for looking at pictures.
This is the view out my window a week or so ago. I'm afraid the hydrangeas are ending their blooming time and the heat really isn't helping them at all. Too hot to sit out and enjoy them but it is my dream spot on a good day to sit and read a book.
This view is from the kitchen. Again, a good spot to sit and read or enjoy good weather. I'm so excited because my tomato plant has a few blossoms on it. I am babying that and watering profusely so maybe, just maybe I'll have my own tomatoes. I'm so excited.
I know that some people don't like to sew in the summer but on a really hot day I think it is a perfect activity - in air-conditioning, of course.
Wherever you are and whatever you're doing, stay cool today.
