I thought I would get up and go for a walk while it was still cool. Didn't happen because as soon as I went out the door, it was already hot and muggy. Early for that this year, so the summer will probably be a tough one.
The dogs and I like to walk in the creek on days like this. It's cool and refreshing. It's also very close to the house and doesn't wear you out getting there or back.
Even so, when I drive into town, I often see very old people working in their gardens by the road. They work out there in the afternoon, at the worst possible time, but it doesn't seem to phase them. I guess they are tougher than I am. More power to them.
In the big drought of 1987, when almost everything dried up here, this particular creek stayed full and you can drink the water from the pool there. No parasites, no nasty chemicals or farm run off. I suppose the desert offers things I don't have here, but on the other hand......
