110F with a humidity of 21%. At one time in the afternoon, they thought the high would be 112F, but, I don't think we reached that. Also at one point in the afternoon, they thought it might rain and there was a notification that appeared on my computer screen to expect rain in 30 minutes! I didn't believe that because there were no rain clouds in my area. It might have rained somewhere else, but, we didn't have any rain in my area.
I stayed in the family room until around 3:00 p.m. and then, went into the bedroom and turned the a/c unit on and stayed there. At about 6:30 p.m., I opened the windows to air out the house and turned the a/c unit off, but, I stayed in the cooler room until 7:30 p.m. Today, even Dancer chose to stay inside the cool room without fussing! LOL.
I wasn't very productive, today. I considered sewing myself a cotton blouse (I have very few cotton blouses and none that is sleeveless and I thought it would be nice to have one to wear in this heat). I went so far as to pull out a pattern, cut out the pattern pieces, and choose a piece of fabric from the stash. But, the pattern required facings, etc., and it was really too fiddly to sew in this heat! I was getting frustrated just trying to pin down the pattern pieces without them blowing around for the fan. In the end, I just folded up the pattern pieces and put everything away. I will figure out another way to sew a simple cotton top! I just want something that will be cool and comfortable to wear during this heatwave!
I did start the car and let it run for a few minutes and I cleaned the litter box. Called friend R and chatted with her for a bit; she said she went to the shopping mall because it was air conditioned and spent several hours there. I haven't been to a mall since before the pandemic! End of December 2019 was the last time I was inside a mall.
My daughter had another migraine, today, after about a month of not getting them. She took the over-the-counter medication her doctor had recommended she took and said she felt better after a few hours, but, not before she felt some different migraine symptoms like cold hands and feet, that she had not felt on previous occasions. She said she checked her temperature at one time, because she was feeling chills, but, her temperature was normal. I'm glad it's a long weekend and she has a holiday tomorrow to rest.
Brunch, today, was a mango, followed by an egg salad sandwich. I had another egg salad sandwich with my evening cup of tea. Dinner was a salad and a piece of cold chicken.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Daughter is feeling better after her migraine headache
- The room air conditioner and fans
- Electricity to run them
- The car started without any problems
- Easy, cool meals
Today's joyful activity was video chatting with my daughter, who was feeling better.
Today's decluttering included two glass jars (I had been using them to root plant cuttings in water, but, the cuttings didn't root and the jars are not needed).
Tomorrow, Monday, is Labor Day and a holiday here, in the USA and in Canada, too, I believe. It is considered the unofficial end of summer and one is not supposed to wear white after Labor Day (although I admit I wear white even after Labor Day). I don't have any plans, as such, for tomorrow. The weather forecast says it will be 107F, tomorrow. Currently, just before midnight, it is 85F outside and 90F inside. Although the house remains cooler than outside during the daytime, it doesn't cool down much at night!
How was your Sunday? What are your plans for Monday/Labor Day?
