This is the summer we wish for but almost never get.
Yes it is Wednesday but it is and will get even hotter during the day so I really can’t du much else anyway, so no day of from the blog 🙂 We reached 33C (91,4F) for a short while here yesterday, just before a tiny thunderstorm passed by. It mumbled some and it rained some but I didn’t even get wet on my feet after walking out shortly after it stopped raining 🙂 But it did feel much colder because the temperature dropped to 25C (77F), I actually felt cold for a while 🙂
It’s already 27C (80,1F) and it’s not even 12 o’clock yet. We have a few clouds in the sky and I can see that they already are building up to become thunder clouds. This morning however was pretty nice, thick fog and 10C (50F) so I thought a walk to the bog would be nice and perhaps give me a few nice photos. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed when it turned out there was no fog what so ever out there 🙂 So we walked back and I should have stayed near my home because that’s where the fog was all the time 🙂
But I really can’t ask for better weather during my vacation, this is what we usually wish for but never gets so we really don’t know how hot this is 🙂 and since the humidity is very low right now it is bearable, well at least as long as one doesn’t do anything more than breathe 🙂 I nice breeze has started to blow as well so now it’s kind of nice again. I had one window open all night on the bottom floor (I checked the mosquito net thoroughly) and hoped for the chimney effect, that the hot air upstairs would blow out through the open window in my bedroom, dragging cool air with it on its way out. I’m not sure it worked as I hoped but it was pretty cold downstairs when I woke up this morning 🙂
I need to fix some kind of tiny floating jetty for one of the water barrels. This morning I saw a sparrow trying to drink some water from it but the water level is a bit too far down so it almost fell down into it. It happens that they actually falls down and drowns and I really don’t want that. It’s strange that they don’t li,e the bird bath I’ve given them 🙂 It would have been so much more practical if they used that.
It’s time for a pot of tea and to find a place where it is slightly less hot, the livingroom is on the shadowy side of my cottage so I think that’s the best place to be right now. I do have the cool cellar but my dogs don’t want to stay down there for more than a few minutes. In worst case I’ll force them down no matter what they think of it 🙂 but it looks like thunder and hopefully a bit cooler air is on the way.
Have a great day!
