This week here in New England the thermometer blasted into the 90s. The temperature in the 90s is not unusual here in August, but June - that is another story. In the winter I have had to cancel Tuesday bible study due to snow but I never dreamt I would have to cancel bible study due to heat but that happened yesterday. So how do we stay cool? There is the key placement of two window unit air conditioners. (As a child I always wondered why my father had the a/c in his room while my sister and I split a fan. Now as a parent I understand, the a/c is a reward for being older.) We also opened up the pool (a 4 X 6 kiddie pool). We also made some rhubarb tea. Rhubarb tea? Oh yeah. Take 4 cups of diced rhubarb (the red variety if you have it) and four cups of water. Bring the water to a boil, then turn to a simmer for twenty minutes. Once cooled, strain out the rhubarb pulp, add sugar according to your likings and the zest of one lemon. Sit back, place your feet in the kiddie pool and enjoy.
The color, the color I cannot get over.
I am listening to a great sermon right now by Otis Moss, Jr and Otis Moss, III go here for a listen. Also go here for an interesting article on Rev. Wright possible unwillingness to give up the leadership at Trinity UCC.
