So, it’s Sunday and it’s stopped raining. But it’s seriously humid. Just put the dog’s fan on.
We’ve had rain on and off over the past week, with temps around 20 C / 70-ish F.
The lawn is back to being green, the plants that want sun are grumpy, the sweet peas out front have gone mad, and I was stuck inside for much of Saturday so made corn soup.
Every time I meet a neighbour, we talk weather and feeling thankful that we’re above the dome. Continued good wishes to everyone managing through the hot weather.
I have not much today. It’s as if my brain just decided to be blank. We’re about to enter second-quarter earnings season and I’m hoping for a busy period workwise through mid-August. I’ve booked the last week in August off with plans to do not much beyond some nice lunches, walks and a visit into ‘town’ to do things I don’t generally have time for (eg, maybe TK Maxx and the Apple store, as I’m thinking the iPad will need replacing soon – it’s getting elderly). It’s more than a year since I’ve had a holiday and I’m seriously weary.
I’m wearing Perfumer H Ink as I write. I do like this less than Smoke but it’s good: interesting and resinous – perfect for grey and rainy as well as grey and humid. And goes along well with the almost constant salt air smell we’re getting right now.
I finished the most recent Daniel Silva Gabriel Allon book, the latest Venice book by Philip Gwynne Jones, watched Gardeners’ World. Now, at loose ends on books. If you have anything you’d like to recommend, please do.
Got Dolce dei Leche cake from Sara’s bakery. Absolutely glorious. First time she’s done it.
See, seriously nada, just nada nada nada. Will, I hope, have something much more interesting next week.
Hope your week was more eventful or exciting than mine. Anything wow you that we should all know about?
