I know that our temperatures here in Minnesota can't come close to those in the states west of us, but nonetheless, it is hot. And muggy. Staying indoors in my air conditioned apartment is the best possible option. I don't do well with hot and muggy.
I have 10 lbs. of potatoes waiting to be dehydrated and beans ready to be canned up into pork and beans, but I believe they can just wait a while longer. The central air in my building works fine as long as I keep the windows closed and don't run the dehydrators or the stove too much. I am glad that I canned several varieties of soup earlier. Lunches this week will be soup from a jar that I can microwave and maybe a sandwich. The crockpot will be getting a workout this week as it throws off very little heat. I thawed out some chicken legs and will add some broth, a jar of diced potatoes and carrots, some dehydrated onion and let it cook all day. Dumplings added about a half hour before suppertime will make a good meal.
My scrawny bean plants have a few more blossoms on them and so does the cantaloupe. Looks like I should have blossoms opening up on the zucchini in a week or two. So far I haven't killed off any of the plants in my little windowsill garden. I thought for sure I would have murdered at least some of them by now.
Aside from a few minor housekeeping chores, I think it will be quiet here in my little corner of the world. I have sewing projects and books to read and I need to make some entries in my genealogy program. Lots to do without having to deal with the heat and humidity.
Life is good.
