You know it's hot when you can't eat ice cream fast enough to avoid it melting down the cone!
At 9 this morning, the temperature was 26C (80+ Fahrenheit) & it appears we'll be in the 30's again this afternoon; already the humidity is at 70% making it feel more like 40C (+100F); it's been like this for almost a week now! I saw the thermometer climb almost 10 degrees within an hour yesterday. Overnight we drop about 10 degrees.
There've been several heat alerts out advising us not to overdo any activities, especially between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. I don't think they need to worry! The ceiling fan above my bed is whirling furiously; the lake feels warm as soup and if I'm not in up to my head, I'm in the shade with a tall glass of water & a good book.
Between Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs novels and a Gothic window that I'm building out of cardstock, I can hardly find enough time to nap.
We've started taking our laptops outside to the back porch in the early morning until the sun comes around there; then it's off to the shade of the nearest tree down by the water.

Time for another siesta. Manana.....


  1. Ugh! Remember to drink the water Karin- hope the heat wave doesn't last too much longer for you! Nice that you can find a little relief in the lake at least :)

  2. Ciao Karin!
    Anche da noi fa caldissimo!!!

    Baci dall'Italia

  3. Yo creo que este calor no es normal, nos vamos a derretir como tu helado jejejeje
    Aquie en España, estamos en algunas regiones, sobre los 45º, es horrible el calor que hace.
    Menos mal que yo estoy muy cerquita de la playa y de vez en cuando corre un poquito de brisa.
    Mantente en la sombra y bebe mucha agua!!!!
    besitos ascension

  4. We're having the same wheather here, really humid and hot - so mainly surfing in the web and doing some minies :D

  5. Aqui en España tambien esta haciendo un calor horroroso, aqui en el sur tenemos el viento de Levante que es como un horno y aunque estoy cerca de la playa apenas alivia la temperatura,esperemos que pase pronto ,y mientras una buena sombra y mucho liquido,besos

  6. desde sevilla a 42ºc te entendemos, nosotros estamos durante el dia encerrados con el acondicionador de aire a tope. y salimos por las noches, mucha agua y refrescos.
    un saludo y un abrazo.

    from sevilla to 42 º c you understand, we are locked during the day with the air conditioner stops. and go out at night, lots of water and soft drinks.
    a greeting and a hug.

Always love hearing from you....
