Yes summer has arrived. Supposed to be up in the high 80s and 90s (plus 30c) the next couple weeks. I think most of my bike riding for the next couple weeks will be early in the morning or later on in the day. Most of my trips around the yard on the industrial strength salad shooter (aka the lawnmower) will also be in the evening. Too goddamn hot out to be fooling around outside right now.
Now that it's getting warmer out the insects are out in force now. Had to get a trusty bottle of bug soother from the local Hy-Vee to hose myself down with before going out on rides or walks to keep from having all the bugs (gnats, flies, etc) away. Still I almost feel like I have to do this some days before heading out....
I finally got around to putting in the window unit in my room today. (We have central air but the way the HVAC was designed I need a window unit to cool my room as my room is at the end and it can't keep up). I think this is about the latest I've put it in. Usually I put it in earlier so I'm not putting it in when it's 1,000 degrees in the shade.
So I've been in a long reading slump. I have so many books I start and just can't get into, But someone gave me the first Outlander book and I was super excited. I've seen clips of the show and it looked like something I would like. Time travel, men in kilts, the struggle between choosing between two different times, all things that appeal to me. But holy fuck. I'm not sure I want to watch the show after reading this, not unless they changed it.
Hello fellow FJ chefs: I am headed to a family reunion picnic this weekend and need to bring a dish to share. I am so over potato salad, pasta salad and the like. Does anyone have a go-to, fairly simple recipe for something other than the typical picnic food? TIA
According to this "article" which cites NOAA, only two states in the US will NOT experience hotter than average temperatures this year. Unfortunately, they are states that are already pretty hot during the summer. Here's to you, Nebraska and Kansas! Way to escape the heat by already being hot in the summer. http://gizmodo.com/only-two-states-will-avoid-an-absurdly-hot-summer-this-1778407429
