The humidity has returned, and alas, I am never prepared. We in Pennsylvania have really been spoiled this summer because the humidity has only just arrived. I am truly thankful.
I tried to work the patients out in the Formal Garden at the front of the facility. But, within 60 minutes we were all feeling sluggish. With breaks, the crew and I were able to make it until lunch at 11:15am. Returned at 12:15pm and again was dragging my feet in my steel toed boots by 1pm. So, we packed up the truck and went under the shade. Still not finish weeding and mulching the beds at the entire facility ... I have saved the shady locations for this time of year when I can not work in the full sun but for an hour or two.
Since the Boss of the vocational programs at the facility suggested that we stay open over the summer, we have kept the shoppe open 2 days a week instead of 3 days a week. It has been difficult as we have not had a steady crew of patients. However, I am closing the shoppe next week to catch up with activities that are falling by the wayside.
