- it's bloody hot outside
currently 40C /104F and it's only midday so 't'will get hotter
I don't have functioning A/C - haven't had for 2 years at least - cos the goats repeatedly stand on /chew the bits that are outside [ so it's hardly worth getting it repaired again until there is something resembling a fence between them and it ... which ain't happening anytime soon ]
-therefore today is all about the lounging around, the telly and the reading
speaking of which
since New Years Day I have read:
Proven Guilty ... Jim Butcher's Dresden Files
and the following Terry Pratchett offerings:
Witches Abroad [ although, to be honest, I'd nearly finished that before I got side tracked by the Dresden Files ]
Lords and Ladies
Laurell K Hamilton:
A Stroke of Midnight
It's a bit hot
This is the knitting that I am not doing - see above regarding the ambient temperature
in the last month I have acquired another great-niece, Isabella Lilly, and a great-nephew, Isaac James. Obviously this is for young Master Isaac who was a month early and weighed in at 6 pounds and a bit.
In the interests of family harmony, Isabella's already got the exact same top except in palest pink and a slightly larger size. I'll post the photo when I find it
... can't have anyone's nose getting out of joint over who got the better pressie now can we ?
