Yes, it has been very hot this week, but when I stepped outside this morning it felt like the humidity was off the charts.
I love summer and will take it over cold gloomy weather any day of the week, but when the humidity causes the heat index to be over 100 it becomes a tad uncomfortable to spend time outside.
"On humid days, when the air is already saturated with water, sweat evaporates more slowly.
This explains why it feels so much hotter in high humidity. When relative humidity reaches a high enough level, the body’s natural cooling system simply can’t work. Sweat evaporates very slowly, if at all, and the body heats up. In extreme cases, people begin to suffer from heat cramps or heat stroke, which is basically organ failure as the body begins to cook itself." (source)
Well that explains why I feel like I am being roasted on days like today.
I have been trying to get over a summer virus for three weeks and finally had to go see a doctor on Monday to get an antibiotic for a sinus infection.
I was told to take it easy. Pffft!! Too much to do I thought, but when I hit the outside air today taking it easy seemed like a good plan.
It is supposed to cool down to a manageable temperature this weekend so I guess it won't hurt me to spend a day or two indoors.
I have more sorting and purging that I need to do and I can do a lot of it with my feet up.
I've been sorting through my vintage linens and have put a couple of pieces in the shop. You can see them here.
I took two pretty pieces to my booth earlier this week, but someone immediately shoplifted them. That certainly didn't help to keep me from overheating.
I have never been able to understand stealing.
I have started posting in Instagram again and would love to have you as a follower. I am offering 10% off in my Etsy shop to my followers. The code is INSTY10. Oops I guess I just told you so you can have it even if you aren't a follower, but I would love to see you there. Here is where you can find me.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
