Now I feel like it should say "The Princess Seraphina Tea Room for desiccated ladies".  I do not ever go out in the sun for a reason. However, I was out in it today, with 85 SPF sunscreen, a hat and a parasol, and I still feel just terrible  have a sunburn and can't seem to drink enough water.  It wasn't even that hot today!

   I did once talk with a lady who had been young and wild in the 1920's who told me that she and her friends really did rouge their knees...

     Vienna

"Come on babe, why don't we paint the town, and all that jazz, I'm going to rouge my knees and roll my stockings down, and all that jazz...."

I suppose it gives the illusion that one has spent a lot of time on all fours.... Wink

I am speculating that perhaps the rouge on one's knees was used to cover up the carpet burns ?!

Aparently "Skirts rose to just below the knee by 1927, allowing flashes of knee to be seen when a girl danced or walked into a breeze, although the way they danced made any long loose skirt flap up to show their knees. Flappers powdered or put rouge on their knees to show them off when dancing." But thats uncited.....

My dear, I look forward to meeting you at SteamCon!  Rest assured, the Pacific Northwest climate in October will be most agreeable, and will rehydrate you back to your old self!

Meanwhile, I recommend lots of lemon-mint water and a nice lie-down in a dark room with the shades drawn.

 Cool

Unbelievably, the sun is just as hot  here (Glasgow, Manufactory to the World and birthplace of modern steam machines). Despite covering every possible inch and wearing my broadest hat, the temperature was extreme and I did have to have a wee lie down, in darkend room, with tea, upon my return from my monthly Ladies Perambulation. Today we walked 6 miles along the unpaved path from Mugdock to Strathblane, intending for a small refreshment but sadly the hoipolloi had crowded out the establishment and we had to return to the city exercised but unrefreshed.
I can only quote the inestimable Space-Captain Smith - tea not only calms and refreshes but also reinvigorates moral fibre.

Well, ladies, you complaint about hotness, but here, in the south of the world, the cold is killing me. I forgot to wear appropriate clothes last Saturday, and now I have a nasty cold... The gentleman who was with me that day also forgot to wear as the occasion dictated, and the best he could do was helping me to maintain dry my drawings.

I preffer hot climates, is unusual for me to have sunburns. I'm not so a delicate lady, it seems. But well, if I lived in the victorian age, I would rather be an adventurer than a modest lady...

(hope I didn't do anything messy with the spell check, hehe)

As my family originates from an island in the Mediterranean, I too like a dry heat.

I grew up in Scotland in the late 80s/early 90s so I am used to the cold. The weather is a lovely change but its giving me zero motivation, all I want to do is sit in the sun and sleep! Not good when I have a dissertation to write!

I wish it was colder here. I miss living IN San Francisco we just don't get enough fog north of the city.

sitting in the sun and sleeping sounds like my vacations!

I'm trying to enjoy the sun as much as I can now, because I am moving to Seattle, Washington in a few months.  Not much sun there.

Since earlier I shared the tale of how my husbands became deceased...
We just did a photo shoot and our photographer took a photo of me holding the photos of my three deceased husbands.
