What a beautiful day! It makes me want to take a nap, though I think this might be the opposite reaction I'm supposed to have when San Francisco gets one of its rare summery days. I really love sleeping in the sun, though!
Another one of my favorite things to do on a hot day is make hibiscus tea: organic dried hibiscus flowers my friend W gave me from her husband's parents' tree, steeped in hot water and sweetened with some yuzu jam from the Korean market. I was going to add lemon, too, but the only lemon I have is all shriveled up (I don't know why I still have it! And even as I type this!). Of course, Martha Stewart has an amazing-sounding recipe for a Strawberry Hibiscus Lemonade that sounds right up my alley.

I haven't really said anything about my lingerie project in the works, but here's a sneak peak of the pair I was working on today. (After I got out of bed at 1ish...)
Unfortunately, I ran out of elastic just as I thought I'd be able to finish before I went to bed—that would've been exciting—but who knew each of my thighs required 18 inches of elastic to go around? That was a bit of a shocker. I mean, it just SOUNDS like a lot; I guess I'd never thought about my body parts in terms of circumference, for things other than the usual bust, waist, and hips. Happy surprise of the day though: the elastic turned out to be entirely dyeable! Fancy that.
