the greenhouse is full of fresh home grown tomatoes
ready to be harvested and eaten.
a bounty of tasty tomatoes
I will be making tomato salads, perhaps indulge in some tomato sandwiches,
will also plan to roast some for a pasta dish and may freeze some.
BC is immersed in a heat wave...
the temperatures are rising
and with that, my plans to work outside in the garden are shelved for a cooler day.
The blinds are closed and the windows have been opened a crack
(otherwise the cats escape!)
The overhanging eaves, a typical feature of an arts and crafts bungalow,
help to keep the sunshine out.
So I am staying inside attacking my long "to do list"...
it's only 10:30 and I have done 3 loads of laundry,
the last load of slip covers are spinning in the LG as I type.
The farmhouse sink has been bleached,
the mail opened, bills paid ready to be posted.
I plan a quick manicure
a beach walk
need to return something to the store
stop by a friends' home
start a new book.
My summertime favourites...
Eau Thermale mist by Avene to help refresh the skin
I also keep a cool bottle of water on the counter by the sink
take one outside with me when I garden...hydrating from the inside out!
SPF 50 for my face and exposed arms and legs.
I try to wear a light Tencel long sleeved shirt for extra sun coverage.
Spritz of Roger and Gallet light rose scent to refresh throughout the day.
The new favourite Sally Hansen diamond tough polish which lasted an entire week before showing signs of wear...
the shade is called Love Bug.
I'd better get back to work...
my break is over!
