It's 7:00 PM and 102 Degrees...

...which is why there are no pictures involving anything remotely resembling wool.  Bleah.........

This weekend we went to a family event in Colorado, so we missed the 105-degree blast on Saturday.  It was fun--and much cooler there--though my brilliant idea to have physical therapy on Thursday and fly out on Friday was a spectacular flop.  I hurt so much while flying that I actually resorted to mixing 1/4 of a valium with a glass of wine.  The prescription actually said 1-2 pills were okay, but I can't handle that.  1/2 a tablet usually knocks me out, so while I would never, ever, EVER combine them normally, it was basically like getting a bit drunk--just in a rather relaxed way.  And it worked, though I didn't even TRY to knit on the plane.  I can't even imagine how THAT would have gone.

Saturday we all went to the Colorado Renaissance Festival, which was a hoot. Almost half the attendees were in costume, and some were simply astounding.  I was SO glad I didn't take the vest to wear--it was pretty toasty in just the dress.  AND I survived 90 minute car rides there and back and an entire day of walking on uneven ground.  I hurt very badly the next day, of course, but it didn't give me the big setback it might have 4 months ago.  I had to rest most of Sunday, but I am making progress!

It was REALLY hard to come back to our heat on Monday, but Southwest Airlines decided to send us through Phoenix on the way, just to show us how bad heat could REALLY be.  What do people in Arizona knit?
