Phew

Yes, Summer has reached North Yorkshire at last and it looks as though today is the only day we shall get as it is set to become ten degrees cooler overnight tonight.   Shalln't be sorry as it is much too warm for me today - and Tess too.

Lethargy has set in.   I just noticed that a lupin had begun to go to seed and as it has about five other flower spikes coming into bloom I staggered across to the bed where it is and cut it out.

I had a very bad night's sleep last night and consequently I am very tired today.   Tess is following me about like my shadow in case  I should change my mind and decide to go for a walk after all (in the heat of the day).I finally
got up at a quarter to six and while it was cool took Tess for her morning walk.   Coming back I had my Weetabix and fruit and a cup of coffee and then sat and read the paper until ten to nine when I drove into town for some money from the cash machine and a top up on fruit and veg. 

In a fit of enthusiasm on the way home I called in at the car wash and let them give the car a good clean (mostly bird dirt) and when I got home I cleaned the inside and brushed the mats.   Then it was water the plants and tubs.   By this time it was about a quarter to eleven and I was exhausted, so sufficient to say I have done almost nothing since.  It is very close and airless and looking at the forecast it seems there are storms on the way.

Arthritis is always very bad in hot weather and I am finding walking very difficult but after feeding Tess an hour ago I walked - maybe staggered would be a better word - round our usual walk and now we are back home and set to stay here all evening.   At the moment I don't feel like eating any tea - hot weather and I don't altogether agree.

Why do a job like that on the hottest day of your summer so far? I am afraid I do not understand you Weave. Me, I relaxed calmly in 29C and did nothing and enjoyed my day.

Well done on all you achieved today. We have had thunderstorms and hail this afternoon and like you, heat and I are poor friends. I have been sewing and drinking lots of fluids. Take care.

I see we had the same idea; I was up at five, out for my daily walk at six and was back home by nine. Watered my plants, did a little shopping in the village, then stayed indoors in the cool.

Jules said...

Fortunately I don't fair too badly in the heat, which explains why I spent this afternoon baking. I hope you manage a good night's sleep and you feel more comfortable tomorrow. X

We had our hot day yesterday. Much cooler today. I have to say I did as little as possible when it was so hot so am catching up now.

I hate the heat and humidity. Storms have arrived. Landline phone not working.

Heather said...

I think it is sad that we spend so much time longing for warmer days and when Summer arrives, usually with a vengeance, we just can't cope with it. I suffer with lymphoedema (is that the correct spelling?) so my feet and legs hate hot weather and humidity finishes me off. My remedy is to do only what is necessary and wait for cooler conditions. Hope you sleep well tonight.

Sue said...

It was a bit too warm for Rick today with his thick coat. I waited until this evening to take him for his walk. He even declined his Kong tonight.

Ann said...

I don’t do well in the heat either. I love it when it is fine and warm, rather than the beating heat we’ve had here for the last couple of days. It’s cooler tonight though, so hope we, and you, have a good nights sleep.

Joanne Noragon said...

Summer set in with a vengeance here, too. We have a cooler day promised for tomorrow, then back to gasping hot again. Take care.

Hilary said...

yes, brutally hot and humid in northeast NY state, and I am not a fan either.

Sorry that you had a bad night and do not feel well. This is what i am going through also.
Getting some shopping done, car cleaned and some plants taken care sounds like a full day to me.
Happy to know Tess is around to help. Hugs to gud dug Tess.

We spent the day in the pool. I'm an insomniac anyway; but the last two nights I've hardly slept at all. I do like hot summers, but yesterday was oppressive.

Derek Faulkner said...

I get a tad confused, a few days ago you was writing " Where is the heat" and now it's "Phew". Yesterday afternoon, as I was at a BBQ in my stepdaughter's garden, it was 33 degrees and after a hot night, this morning (Sun), as I write this at 05.15 it is still 82 degrees in my lounge. Perhaps you should buy yourself a small, mobile air con unit.

Derek - it was a one off I am afraid - this morning it is back to windy and not anything like as warm.

Rachel - your criticism is quite justified but I am afraid I am one of those people who need to keep up to date with jobs and if a job needs doing I can't settle until it is done. This morning to see a nice shiny car inside and out and to see all my plants perky because of the extra watering more than makes up for my effort.

Thanks for your comments everyone.

Librarian said...

Wow, you managed to fit in a lot in just one morning - more than some people do in a whole week! And that on a bad night's sleep. I find I do not function very well at all when I have had little sleep, I walk around like a zombie and can not concentrate very well.
We had around 30 Celsius yesterday and it will be even hotter today, forecast to around 36. It is still pleasantly fresh right now (just gone 9:00 am while I am typing this), but I am soon going to pull the blinds down and shut the windows so that the heat stays outside. When my bedroom gets above 25C, I won't sleep very well, and it is back to work tomorrow of course.

Beyond my comprehension.

Hi,i just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called MR ANTHONY. he is really good at what he is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for only money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions.. Four days later I received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, to my greatest surprise It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $3000 daily. ATM has really change my life. If you want to contact them, Here is the email address anthonbradley646@gmail.com
