Another fortnight and we are half way through the year, the longest day will be here and it will be all downhill then until we get to the shortest day in December and start all over again. I would say that up here in the Yorkshire Dales we have not had a really warm day yet. Perhaps today (14 degrees) is as warm as it has been here yet this year. Sunshine? Yes indeed but such a lot of wind off the North Sea and that has kept it chilly.
I would quote 'Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness' but I know Tom likes to be first with that and in any case to me September is the month for that. It always strikes me as odd that the first day of Summer is officially June 21st and yet June the 24th - three days later - is mid Summers Day.
My Laptop has an umbrella up in the right hand corner and tells me rain is on its way. We desperately need it here. We have had dribs and drabs of rain but no real downpour for weeks so I hope it is correct.
I have been tired all day today and slept most of the afternoon. I am happy when my body tells me to do just that. I usually wake up at around four in the afternoon feeling refreshed and I did just that today. It is now 11pm - so goodnight until tomorrow.
