It wasn't as hot today as it has been lately. We have been breaking heat records (and no rain records) like crazy. But today, there was this haze in the sky, and it seemed to block the sun just enough to lower our temperature about 5 degrees (F). This was enough to make it a pleasant day. I'm pretty sure that our "helping haze" is smoke from all of the fires that are burning across our state. There are also wildfires burning in Canada and Oregon that could be pouring smoke into the Puget Sound area.
Anyway, a perfect way to beat the heat is to knit at Crossroads in Bellevue, and a fair number of Eastside Stitchers showed up to hang out at the faux wooden tables.
Let's see if I can get this right:
