Heat Exposure

I went out into the garden yesterday, planning on only getting some Pok Choi and an onion to chop into some Rooster noodle soup. I pulled up an onion and noticed that most of my onions were ready to pull. I should have thought it through. Instead I started to pull them up and throw them into my basket. I managed to get two bushels before the dizziness struck me.

I had not been paying attention to he passing time, and my body didn't give me any signs until I got dizzy. I left the onions in the baskets in the garden and slowly walked back to the house. I was still sweating, so heat stroke was the last thing on my mind.

I slowly drank some water, resisting the urge to throw it up, and laid down in the air conditioned house. My weather alarm suddenly sounded, we were under a heat advisory. It was 107f {41c} outside. No wonder I felt weak.

I began to feel better, so dinner was prepared and I took my oldest son into town for swimming lessons. Standing in the heat for thirty minutes, seemed to aggravate the god of heat exposure, and he stricken me again.

Home at last, I gave my three dogs a bath, an attempt to cool myself as well as them. Felling oh so much better, I drove my car out to the garden. {That in its self should had said something} I moved the water, and gathered up the basket of onions. Then the green beans called to me. By this time it was twilight and had cooled of into the low 90's f {32c}. My head still pounded, but I had to get these green beans. I managed to get a row before I decided that this was a bad idea.

I went back to the house and into a cool shower. I laid down with only a thin sheet and asked for a glass of water. The water didn't stay down. I managed to achieve full blown heat exposure.

I should know better. It being this hot here is normal in July, but I was thinking of the success of the garden. We were actually doing well this year, and I wanted to get the veggies in before they burned up. I don't plan on going out today, I will finish canning my rooster soup, pickle cucumbers and can some Irish stew.

Now if this headache would go away.

Oh Phelan, I'm so sorry this happened. It's really easy when you get involved doing something. *cool hugs* Please try to stay indoors today, and stay cool. I do realize there are chores to be done but you have to watch out for yourself.

Uh oh, I'm starting to sound like a mom...

Love you sweetie, and I'm just concerned.
