Hello and Welcome! Let’s go over here and sit down outside. It is a gorgeous morning. It is still in the low 70s (about 21 C) and the humidity is beginning to break, so it is comfortable. More than comfortable, it is perfect! We have had hot and humid all week. Wednesday was well over 90 (around 33 C). Remember, we had snow two weeks ago… I am glad it is cooling down and the humidity is breaking – I guess my roots are from places like the Isle of Skye, not Cairo ;) Were are we that is warmer than northern Scotland, more humid than Egypt, though, luckily, cooler than Yemen? Some may recognize that photo at the top as being from New Hampshire.
As I said, it went from a cold, wet spring, still more like early April than mid May to July-like weather overnight. It is summer out. This week will be cool, but it is still early summer New England weather. Warm, but with cool nights (I could stand 90 F/30 C weather if it was down to 55F/13C at night so I could sleep! Anyway, with early summer, so comes some of the summer beauty of NH. I talk about running with dogs on the wood hillside in my backyard. I’ve posted quite a few photos of that hill over the years, but here is one from Wednesday morning.
I came back from Cape Cod on Tuesday after work (no work on Monday). Work was busy this week, but not awful. “Not awful” is a code word for I am falling behind again ;)
Despite the heat, I’ve been staying up with my mercerize and running routine.
The dogs like the heat less than I do. The don’t play as much and are content with very short walks. Fiyero spent half of Wednesday night rapidly panting. I finally got him calmed down and sleeping, but it took 3 hours out of the middle of my own sleep. Tonight will be nice!
The week is mostly a humid haze and I really don’t remember all that I did. of course it was short – I am typically back from Cape Cod Sunday morning, so Tuesday night is odd.
Anyway, I have to mow before the neighbors come by with torches and pitch forks. yeah, it’s that bad. Of course, it is also very pretty because my front yard is covered in knee high wildflowers. I will also spend as much time as possible outside now that it is comfortable.
Thanks for stopping by! If you have a coffee share, I will try to stop by, but as usual, I can’t make promises – my blog reading is still lower than usual as my outside time increases with the good weather.
