What to do on a hot day?

It is a scorcher today and likely to be hot for a while yet.  We have card tables, chairs, etc covering some of the plants in an attempt to shield them from the sun. Here's hoping it works.
So ... what to do on a hot day?

We took the dog out early in an effort to beat the heat.  We went to Yarra Bend for a swim and I got some photos that might turn out useful for a design.

I even played around with Photoshop for a while.

Cropped from the picture above.

Cropped further.

Hue and Saturation
As you can see, I was not all that energised, I just did some simple manipulation of the photos. Still, I might get a good abstract design for some tapestry weaving or fabric printing, who knows?

I was then tempted to have a nanna nap but managed to stay up doing some experimenting with patchwork and dyeing.  More about that in the next post.
