Heat Wave, Sewing, and Plant Rescues

Posted by mrssmythe on July 2, 2018 in Crafting, Critters, Garden, Out & About, Week in Review |

Is it hot where you’re at? It’s boiling here. Currently, we’re looking at a week’s worth of temperatures in the high 90s. Humidity will put the “real feel” well into the 100 degree range.
