We’re back from an amazing trip to Norway (well, at least, I am — Chris unfortunately had to ship off to San Francisco immediately upon our return for a work conference). Lots of stories and photos to come! For now I’m trying to beat the jet lag and get back into the rhythm of work/life again. This is challenged by the extraordinary heat and humidity here that I’ve lost my acclimatization to. In Norway after all, our average daily temperature was around 18 degrees! I was wearing jeans most of the time for goodness sake. Needless to say it’s taking some time to readjust.
I was able to spend a couple hours wrestling back control of my garden on Sunday afternoon, and giving everything a desperately needed soaking, but there is still much work to be done. Why is it that while the grass dies and my flowers shrivel, the weeds thrive?
