Quick update: Due to the heat wave, DH declared our house A/C-free (we fried a central A/C compressor 2 years ago in voltage brown-outs, and do not want to repeat the huge cost to replace so soon). So we've been hanging out on the lower level family room, which has a small A/C unit in the wall. Too hot to block Bluebell, too hot to knit more than a few rows at a time, too hot to do more than veg out with an iced drink or cup of sorbet.
Hopefully, the weather will break soon. And maybe I should check out that bank.
