As a college professor I only have a few extra responsibilities during the summer months so right now “my office” is the occasional meeting where I commute to campus, working at the computer from my home office, or simply being outside.
I live in Richmond, VA and I like to be outdoors albeit out of the direct rays of the sun. I really would love to post about how I layer but I don’t. I wear as little as possible and I dowse myself in sunscreen. Sorry for the TMI but I sweat, not perspire, not glisten but sweat! When I have an event that requires me to be outside in the 90+ degree heat like this weekend, I often have to not only change my clothes midday but also shower. I can usually get away with simply touching up my hair, but a make-up overhaul is usually necessary.
On Saturday, my fella needed to go pick up a few plants to fill some of his pots so we headed to Strange’s Greenhouse. They’re a family run florist started by Mr. Strange in 1935. Of course while I was there, I had to pick up a few plants too including a strawberry bush! As soon as I came home, I planted (3pm, the hottest time of the day) and then showered.
