Seriously HOT!

This part of New York State is under an ozone warning today, and probably tomorrow also due to the heat and humidity. Nevertheless, my yard needed mowing, no matter what. For the last week, when I had the time to mow, it was raining or the grass was wet. I waited until about 2:30 to start mowing the front lawn. Half way into it I began having trouble breathing. I didn't care, one way or the other the front lawn was going to get done and it did! I had a bottle of water in my pocket and I went through that in no time. Tomorrow the back yard. Thankfully, the back yard is much smaller and won't take as long. I went to BJs this morning to stock up on the things I buy there - kleenex tissues, Molly's special treats, a big bag of almonds and another one of walnuts, a big container of blueberries, and a few other things. Tomorrow I'm headed to Wegmans. I'll have to take a cooler with ice in it. It is so hot that I don't even want to chance losing a container of milk or eggs for the short drive home. Oh! For those of you not from this area, Wegmans is the most wonderful grocery store in the whole world. They have the very best produce year round. Their customer service is great too, something that is important to me. No matter what ingredient you need for a recipe, you will find it at Wegmans.

This morning I had my new garage door opener installed. Next Saturday the oven repair guy will be here. When I baked zucchini bread and on another occasion, peach cobbler, I knew something was wrong. The zucchini bread (two loaves) fell in the middle and the peach cobbler never got brown, even though I left it in longer than called for. After buying an oven thermometer, I discovered my oven is 70 degrees off. I'm told it is a simple repair - hope that translates to "not expensive"!
