It is so hot that I haven't really felt like doing anything much. One thing hasn't changed and I have still gone for my daily walk (although I haven't walked my usual distance). Today was the hottest it has been for some time while walking (at 0600 in the morning) but there were still the regular cool spots. The rest of the day has been like one long siesta, I read, I do a bit of stitchery (two blocks done of the Noah's Ark BOM) and I drink a lot of water :)
I'm not doing very much cooking as we are having mainly salads or sandwiches, although I reckon we'll be sick of them by the end of the week. Maybe I'll do Singapore Noodles tomorrow for a bit of a change.
On another subject, I ordered some bulbs of Saffron Crocus in the weekend , I wanted to order some last year but forgot. I like the idea of being able to grow my own saffron to use in my cooking one day. It is a spice that is very expensive to buy, but then it is quite labour intensive to harvest as everything must be done by hand. More information on saffron here. I don't generally use a lot of saffron (who does) so I'm hoping that eventually there will be enough growing to provide the amount I use.
