Hot, hot, hot. Damp, moist, humid. But should be clear for a few more days.
I’d say that evidence is that I’ve finally, finally completely healed from my heat injury. It has take years, literally to have normal physical responses to environmental heat, but I think that after working in the garden for a few hours on Monday without ill effect, I’m finally there.
I’ll still use the cool vest though, when I have it with me, because that just makes me more comfortable. It’s nice to be able to go out in the sun for a bit without worry I’ll relapse though. I’m still going to be careful. Take heat illness and injury seriously. They can kill you.
There is an OSHA app that will give you safe exposure times, and break times, as well as symptoms of injury. There are charts too, that I’ve linked in the past and that are easily searchable. It’s not enough to just drink water and wear a hat.
Yesterday was one of those days that I sometimes have where I do stuff, that really needs to be done, but still at the end of the day feels like nothing really happened.
Today will be kinda busy. I’ve got a couple of pickups I might do, but that I can probably delay. I’ve also got to get ready to head out of town for a long weekend. We’ve got a family thing to attend. Today is my chance to get everything done that needs doing before Monday. Joy.
Yeah, family and meatspace, but- air travel and lots of other stuff to do.
So while nothing extraordinary happened yesterday, ordinary stuff did. And sometimes ‘ordinary day’ is the best we can hope for.
Stack some more food. Seriously.
