What I’ve been up to.
Drinking this amazing maple blueberry tea I got while in Canada. I regret not getting the other versions of it such as strawberry and regular. It has a very sweet aroma but not flavor.
I also picked up this rose and raspberry spread in Canada. I can’t stress enough how often I look for “rose jam.” I went in looking for rose flavors where I got this and was shocked to actually finally find some. It’s incredibly sweet and has a subtle floral taste to it. I would have liked a pure rose spread but raspberry happens to be my usual pick for jams at home anyway.
Planted a few flowers and a small container garden species of tomato this week. I would have liked to have invested more time into my container garden this year but the spring was so erratic I could never pinpoint a good time to start seedlings. But I’m happy with what I picked up for the remainder of summer. A bit of color; a bit of flavor. The tomatoes are a very tangy variety.
It’s been hot this week. Heat Index reaching in the low 100°F. I experienced a little heat fatigue the other day. The first time I ever suffered heat fatigue or exhaustion was while in Tokyo a few summers ago. During that time I began eating a lot of cold soba multiple times a day because it was the only thing that settled my stomach. So now when I get it at home it’s become a comfort food that I make. It’s cold, simple, and easy to make. Perfect for the situation.
Thankfully the heat is starting to ramp down. I’ll never know how I survived summers in the south while wearing jeans. I’ve become so acclimated to colder temperatures now.
