Here are some buttons that will eventually make an appearance in my shop. Who knows when as I can't seem to do anything in this heat, and I am embarassed to say that I may just be losing my mind. You can ask Paul if you don't believe me. I politely asked a man who was watering the sidewalk to stop as we are supposed to be conserving water - I normally never say a peep to anyone. ( He didn't stop of course) In my neighborhood, the biggest joy around seems to be watering sidewalks on hottest driest days. It makes me bonkers. I am making dumb mistakes and puttering around like a granny.
But look, I have scientific back-up! This is from last week's NOW magazine.
"There's only one way that the body can cool, and that is evaporative cooling or sweating. High humidity prevents this since the water can't evaporate because the air is saturated. This can result in lethargy, a mild stress condition and poor sleep, which can lead to a low-level attention deficit during the day. Impulsivity, accidents, attention problems and general irritability go up."

Thank goodness for science! Or I might just be considered a grand whimp.
