Of course......

6:16 am - Saturday - July 28th - Southwest Harbor, ME - 64º F, 97% humidity, wind 2 mph out of the south......overcast with a forecast high of 72º F.

Friday began with a heavy mist invading SDC.  The humidity was high, as one might imagine.  It wasn't raining as I was walking to the 'garage' to pick up a golf cart, but I was getting wet.....you could feel the moisture in the air.  It remained cloudy, and misty most of the morning, but as we returned from lunch the sun began to make its first appearance in days.  When the sun comes out again after a long absence all the moisture in the ground resulting form the heavy mists, dew and rain begins to return to the air whence it came and that increases the humidity exponentially.  I spent the rest of the day feeling sightly damp, but I know this is a necessary process.  If we can get a couple of days of sun the water in the ground will evaporate, the humidity will gradually decrease, and things will get back to normal.

We haven't had our windows open in at least 5 days.....I would like to have them open, but then my last refuge from the humidity would disappear.  Our little dehumidifier is doing a wonderful job keeping the humidity inside our Newell at a comfortable level.....when it gets warm, as it did yesterday afternoon, we just turn on the A/C for a while to cool it down and further lower the humidity.

Friday at work was no different from any other Friday, or another other work day for that matter.......we restocked the woodbox, cleaned sites, deadheaded flowers, gathered trash, cleaned restrooms, and I finished my day as I always do (except on rainy days and Hawaiian Night) trimming weeds and grass with my Stihl string trimmer.  About 4:30 pm I called it  a day and pointed my golf cart toward the 'garage'......I unloaded my equipment, and washed the grime from another work day off the company golf cart.  

TLE had made a casserole for our dinner Friday night and left instructions for me to put it in the oven at 5:45 pm so it would be done by the time she arrived home.  I took a long cool shower and was relaxing in my recliner when The Lovely Elaine arrived home from her workday.  There, of course, was more watching of 'Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee'.....of course. Life is good.....thanks for stopping by!
