Golly Moses it's hot today - 102+ at the moment and supposed to hit 106, unusually toasty for here. I've been working on replacing rotten boards on my back deck but it's too hot to be outside so I ended up learning to make quick no-corn-syrup marshmallows. These things Happen when I end up in my kitchen unscheduled.

Did a recipe mash-up and made it with 3 pkts plain gelatin softened in 1/2 c. cold water. Added a generous dollop of vanilla, a dash of salt and about half a cup of honey then 3/4 c. boiling water. Dissolved, cooled and whipped with beaters for 15 minutes - ta-dah!

Ate too many marshmallows. I regret nothing. Wish I had graham crackers.

Tonight our dancers are going to the local high school to teach the football teams some Greek dance steps, we go each year and the coaches swear it helps the teamwork and footwork. O-PAH! They sent us a message promising they'd have the A/C cranked up.

I'm signed up for solo performance at an upcoming Lavender Festival, it's an outdoor stage at the coast so I'm not risking veils in the possible breeze but I made some nifty silk streamers for my wrists. I'm a slow bloomer, I guess - I've been dancing for eight years now but only performed as part of a group, so this is kind of a graduation to another level, where you need your own 'Nom de Dance' to register and get to pick your own music.

I'm happy and a little freaked out all at once, but it's good for me like vitamins for the soul.
