“Poor Me”? well, not so much the uni work but the heat we’ve had here in Adelaide for the last couple of weeks.
Unbelievable. We’ve broken some kind of national record for heatwaves. Day after day after day of 39C, 38C, 40C… it hasn’t rained here for weeks either. Someone should create a new biscotti flavour and call it “Adelaide”. A very well dried out biscuit is exactly what the place looks like at the moment 🙂
We have water restrictions in place of course. Hand-held hosing allowed one day a week for 3 hours. Someone mentioned on the radio that it was very odd how all the front lawns were dead, but there had been some miracle rain-falls in peoples back yards…
I don’t do well in this kind of heat. Especially when it’s dry. I have been so tired, so lethargic. No appetite. Feeling grubby. Face the colour of a beetroot.
I’ve had a lot of these this week. I know it seems odd; coffee in the hot weather. Those magic beans are lovely for a little perk-up though.
Cupcakes still had to be made too. I spent anxious moments worrying about the buttercream, worrying about the cakes sweating. Everything turned out 100% perfect. I put the evaporative air-cooler in the kitchen, took some deep calming breaths, centered what little remaining chi I had left and just got stuck in. Pink iced vanilla and pink and blue iced chocolate cakies . Just over 100 in total. They look a bit shiny I know- I think it’s just the camera flash 🙂
They are saying 38C for today. At least it’s Saturday and I can stay in and read . Too hot for more than the tiniest bit of housework I think 🙂
I have another post I want to share with you – a pasta dish I made during the week. very yummy & very easy!
I’ll be back soon 🙂
