I Think I'm Melting

On one of the warmest, stickiest, most humid days of the year so far, the masochistic homemaker does which of the following:

A) Starts the day by making homemade Caramel Pecan Rolls, and leaves the oven on while they rise
B) Takes the dogs on a 2-3 mile walk (partly uphill) in the middle of the day
C) Goes grocery shopping and comes home with a buggyload of fruit and veggies that require nearly two hours of washing and cutting before putting away
D) Makes Pot Roast for dinner, contributing to the heat and humidity with a pot simmering on the stove all afternoon (including during the two hours of fruit and veg prep)
E) All of the above

Caramel Pecan Rolls

If you answered "E," you would be absolutely right. My excuse is that my brains were already parboiled from having no air conditioning during the current "heatwave" (and in SW Washington, a week of almost 90 degrees qualifies as a heatwave,) and I was out in the sun yesterday for about 6 hours of soccer and end-of-season soccer party related goodness. Read that: END OF SEASON. We are sports-free until August. YIPPEE. I'm too hot and tired to do the official End-of-Season Dance, though.
