Rain v. Humidity

The weather has been rather gross recently. Summer is definitely here with temperatures in the low to mid 80s. The humidity has been quite bad, and we finally broke down and bought a dehumidifier after mold started growing around the air conditioner. Now that we are in love with the dehumidifier, we want to get another one for the living room. At the moment, it is spending one day in the bedroom and the next in the living room. It makes a huge difference.

In addition to the humidity, there has been a lot of rain. All last week, and all this week, rain is predicted every day. One minute it is raining and thunder storming and the next the sun is shining to create a lovely steam bath. The clouds made for an interesting view on Monday.

This past weekend, was the first in a long time that we had zero commitments. Recently, our social calendar has been full, so it was nice to catch up on chores, hobbies, and sleep. I planted some herbs on the balcony--please live little herbs. Also pictured are the two new plants we purchased about a month ago. Both are chest high--one inside and one outside.
