'Tis the Season to be Sweaty

Sweltery today. Some of yesterday's heat lingered in the house all night, so even though it isn't as hot outside today as it was yesterday, the house is hotter. I wouldn't be surprised if it hit 80 degrees in here before sunset, and the attic is packed with heat too, so I'll be drooping all night. I was going to bake some macaroni and cheese for dinner, but I'll probably end up just making a sandwich again. There's an avocado that needs to be used up anyway.

The heat has stimulated the jasmine, and it is now dense with blossoms. The scent is even making its way into the house as soon as I open the back door. It almost overwhelms the smell of cat droppings from the rose bed. I'm going to have to clean those up again.

Having missed my appointment with the chiropractor Tuesday has begun to take a toll. I'm starting to get headaches. The heat is probably contributing to it, too, and I might be getting additional irritation from the fresh pollen coming out of the jasmine. As much as I love the scented nights, the first couple of days of it usually do bad things to my sinuses. Every pleasure has its price, I suppose.
