Le Tour de Fleece - Day Twelve and other stuff

Firstly, here's today's Satuday Sky:

It's nothing but clear and HOT here--highs today are supposed to be 100 and above.

Last night's spinning wasn't too productive. I decided to do a little test with the alpaca and stopped and double plied what I had. I'm having trouble drafting it--it's so hot that the fiber's a little hard to handle. I also can't decide how I want to spin this--thin or thicker, I don't know. I ended up with about five yards, and it's okay, but I think I'm going to put it aside until it's a little cooler. It's just too hot right now to work with something this soft. So now I have to pick something new to spin.

How hot is it? My poor garden is just barely hanging on. It was about 86 degrees when I took Maggie out a little before 9 this morning, and the walkway was boiling hot. Now, realize that my walkway faces east and gets full morning sun, plus it's concrete. This was the temp out there this morning:

Yup--103 degrees before 9 am. No wonder my plants are burning up.
