It has been hot. Unbearably so. It's the kind of heat that sucks the breath out of you. Leaves you dizzy and tired and thirsty and cranky. The A/C is on, and all you want to do is to stay inside. During these types of "heat waves", we are advised to take care of the children and the elderly, as they are less tolerant to the extreme heat and humidity.
During the course of this last week, I have worried a great deal about...my gardens. Thank goodness, I have access to free labour! (Does it count as "free" if you have to hand out Freezee after Freezee?)
Together, my husband of 14 years (I am far too young to have been married that long) and I have three girls: Bethie and Katie are our seven year old twins, and Sarah is our 4 year old "baby". It's us vs. the kids...and we're losing!
