I am sure you believe me when I say I plan to take it easy today. That is not entirely accurate. I plan not to do yard work until this evening at any rate. The grass that is left to mow still has dew on it. I have library books to read, after I make breakfast and lunch for hubby. Just making a smoothie and then lunch is leftovers from last night. I will set the containers out for him to put in his lunch box. I think I will start with coffee outdoors. My image is from the corner by the market in Peabody on July 4, 2017

Evening here would be worse, the peak temperature is supposed to be around 6 PM instead of earlier in the afternoon like it normally is.

I was out mowing after 8 last night, for a while. Where I need to mow still is very shady and cools fast at night.

@JolietJake Right. The vehicle I am keeping at home right now, the white van, does not have a/c, or rather the a/c needs charged. I just stay home, it works. Of course Aug. 1 I go back to work.

That is what I plan to take it easy by working inside the house, I am about refusing to work in this yard anymore, till I get a riding mower, however this weekend I need to mow the small lawn at the old home place.

My home is basically my plate until August 1. I have had a lot of stresses this summer and today I just need a day off. Possibly from the heat as well.

I got food out for my husband's lunch box. Leftovers from last night. He will do his own if I do not, but when I can I help him.

I often go out between 6 a.m. and 10, but just did not feel like it at all today. I do take it easy and drink lots of fluids.

I have dedicated today to a couple of hours on myLot then reading - it's too wet outside to do much else.

I am sure we will be starting on wet weather again soon, but for now it is just hot and dry. I enjoyed the bit I read today, in between naps.

@GardenGerty isn't it funny how the body tends to over relax once you pick up a book. It takes me ages to read now s i fall asleep after a couple of pages.

@valmnz I have not been reading much for the past year or so. I want that to change. Because of some things with my health I slept a lot today, but I did start reading a light mystery that looks fun.

I had two very long naps, which I must have needed. I hibernated in the cool air, after a cool soak in the tub. When I did go out to do some small stuff I managed to fall, but we will not talk about that.

The morning is the most pleasant moment of the day, still fresh and breezy. I like to take my breakfast outside under the porch.

Of course I believe you when you say you're going to take it easy. Something always comes up and things have to be done. Enjoy your coffee outdoors and just listen to the music of the birds, contemplating on the beauty of God's creation, before life barges in and takes you away.

I actually did take it pretty easy. I snuck in an extra cool soak, and then napped, twice.

@GardenGerty That's great. I got my morning nap yesterday and then was pretty much lazy the rest of the day. Are you busy today? I have a full schedule so might not be here very much today.

This little market often has an interesting display. This entire town focuses on the patriotic decor in July.
