Today, I'll start off by telling what's it like when I step outside my door, and into the the world: hot and hardly breathable.
We're in the middle of a heat-wave.
There are many, many ways of fighting the heat-wave; doctor recommend a consummation of "light food" and lots of liquid, traffic inspectors urge drivers to take more "pit-stops" on their way to a holiday, governmental bodies are telling the institutions to shorten their work hours to both save the people's health and the electrical bills (air-conditioning is a large consumer, people!).
On, with our BURDA!
Ah, the era of elegance!
I can't NOT miss the time (knowing that it's impossible to miss something you haven't had - but still, while observing these images I wonder what it would be like back then?)
A new item on my office desk. :)..
I do follow all the instructions and recommendations given, when it comes to fighting the heat, I'm (as they call it) a "law abiding citizen"; except for one thing. You know, how they say "Avoid doing any labor if possible".
There are times when you can not avoid the heat. I believe folks in USA like saying "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen" - and I take it quite literally. :) You see, the thing with summer is that it's the "time of plenty" and a time to prepare your larder for the coming winter. So, staying away from heat is impossible while one's preparing jam. :)
