The last couple of days have felt warm. Not hot – blast furnace hot – like it can get in August or September. In August you can drive along with your hand out the window and feel the heat just like an oven. Right now it is warm but there is this little undercurrent of cool.
Even though it isn’t super hot it takes a bit of time to adjust and I have been a bit woozy today, not feeling like myself. I decided a refreshing drink that would hydrate me and make me feel cooler is a Limonjito. I get these when we go to the Sinaloa chain Panamá sometimes. It is a combination of lime, cucumber, and mint blended with ice in my Vita-mix blender. Very refreshing!
The weather forecast calls for it to be very hot mid week – 97 degrees or so. If the humidity stays up that will be some hot weather for sure. Other areas in México are very hot, too. Our rainy season usually starts the last week of June, but we are hoping it starts a bit earlier this year.
Below take a look at a sweet potato plant I’m growing. I forgot it in a bowl on the counter and it had tiny little sprouts. I sat it in a dish with water for a couple of days and then planted it. I just love how things grow here – with lots of enthusiasm!
