Just thought I'd do a quick survey and see how hot everyone is . . .

Here, now . . . 105 deg F (my car said it was 107, though).

We got up to 110 the other day, but today is only in the mid 90's. BUT, they are sealing the roof on my shop and the smell is so strong I had to turn the AC off and open the doors. It is HOT in here!

It was almost 90 today in upstate NY, but it was not oppressive.

There was a nice breeze.

Last week, it hit 101 and that was a little much. :D

It has gone down 2 degrees to 105 so off to M' s lacrosse game. The field is artificial do it should be hotter than grass. They have sprinklers for the grass edges which they will turn on and make the boys get wet.

The weird thing was, I had to do a little work outside. Nothing too strenuous. I was outside maybe 45 minutes. It was really hot but I wasn't sweating. I attributed it to the fact that the humidity isn't too bad. When I came into the house, the sweat just started pouring off of me. I think it was just evaporating so fast when I was outside that I didn't think I was sweating.

Wait a minute . . . :blink: . . . I'm a girl. I don't sweat.

I glow

:rolleyes:

I glowed a lot!!

The 4th of July is always miserably hot here. It's rather dis concerning, because we take the boat to the waterfront, eat-drink :) aboard, and watch the "works", with friends and family.

We are getting the heat that you speak about Janet, tomorrow and it will run for the next week.....96 - 100's. <_<

And when I'm Queen, the 4th of July will be in May! B)

We were slated to be 95 today but we topped out at 89.3 around 4 pm with 45% humidity & a nice breeze. It was quite comfortable under the shade of old Live Oak trees.

Tomorrow were supposed to be 99. I hope not.

Yesterday morning we had frost, but I had covered my zucchini and tomatoes. Today it was low 90's. I love our cool nights for sleeping and letting in the morning cool to cool the house off for the day.

My ideal location would have a temperature range of 48 to 76 . . . for the highs. It's allowed to get colder than that at night.

Is that what you've got, Jess?

Purple, where 'bouts are you getting frost? You don't have to be specific . . . but in general, where are you?

My aunt told me this when I was a kid, if that is what J. means:

Horses SWEAT

Men PERSPIRE

Women GLOW

:lol:

Already 90 at 11:45 in NY.

That "glowing" J mentioned?

I did about 15 minutes of dead-heading perennials and ...mmmhmmm... whew!

Hit 104* yesterday. Today much cooler...98*. ;)

We have a solarium (greenhouse) addition at the back of our house. I opened the door and it's like a blast furnace! Very similar to how hot a car gets inside. :(

No matter what the weather is like, I'll never forget what Gary Elenbolt, the morning guy on our local NPR station said one 10 below morning: "It's cold enough to freeze an egg on the sidewalk."

10 below sounds pretty good right now.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
       
    • Thank you. This is really helpful. I will call around next week.  I just want to heal! 
    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
    • Spicely Organics has both cassia and true (Ceylon) Cinnamon and are certifed gluten free along with the rest of their spices, as to tea Republic of Tea has most of their products tested and certified gluten-free also. You can visit their sites or try Amazon.
