Summer's here at last,

with temps this week cresting at a possible 112 degrees on Saturday. It's been a long and lovely and tender Spring with a lot of gratitude from me.  Now heat and heat and then some more. Desert living means use the shade, don't open the east-facing door after 7:00 a.m., dig out the mylar space blankets to cover the east-facing window over the kitchen sink and the west-facing window in Bastian's room.

It means don't turn the oven on very much any more.

It means running the cooler much of the day to keep my animals comfy while i'm at work.

The oven's on right now, as i'm making baba ganoush and roasting the eggplant first. Later on, i'll have a cool, creamy vegan dip to eat with the carrots. :)
