I hate summer in the Southeast. Ok…there I said it out loud. It wasn’t so bad the last couple weeks. It was raining like heck though. Everyday for over 2 weeks, we had monsoon style rain all day long and overcast. Unbelievable. Even though I missed the sun, I was Ok with rain. Really, I was.
This week the sun is shining, but why do I feel so miserable. It’s the heat. Well, really it’s the heat and humidity combined. I find it difficult to breathe in this weather. I choose to sit inside with the AC. How did folks live in this area before the availability of AC? Anyway, I feel cranky. I know its because of the weather. I want to go out side and sit on the porch…but I know I better not because the mosquitoes will find me and the sweat will start dripping and that gnats will annoy me. Ugh! I’m just being cranky.
Good thing I know what drives the cranky away. Yep…you guessed it…working on a new piece of art. Sitting in my cool room, listening to the hum of my sewing machine while I methodically add thread to fabric…a work in progress (WIP)…ah! This is nirvana.
