It seems a bit weird to be writing about keeping cool today when in England it’s probably even hotter than here. Not Scotland though.
I can definitely feel the difference. After nearly 2 weeks of relatively cool weather ( around 30C) today I needed to have a fan on again and at 5.30pm it’s still not comfortable to sit outside.
It was good to go shopping early this morning .It seems to have become a Sunday routine. Today I bought this….
In my gallery with my fan on at three quarters , while lying on the sunlounger with a good book is the best place to be on a hot Sunday morning.
Finished the latest (9) chief inspector Gamache book. Brilliant ending.
Having bought bigger bin bags I sorted out my recycling box.
I feel like I’ve learned how my house works over these last 3 years. And bunging all my paper, plastic and glass in a big cardboard box , then sorting it out when it’s full , works much better than putting one thing out at a time. Gives me a nice organised feeling.
I spent an hour on the commission in the afternoon. All I need is a little enthusiasm and I could get both panels finished. The heat doesn’t help…..and I ordered another Gamache book……
This weather is perfect for hand washing . Even dripping wet tee shirts are dry in a couple of hours .
I spent half an hour looking for windows and doors to use on my mural and made little sketches of several.
But mostly I kept cool in the gallery with a good book.
Now it’s time for my weekly treat…. the latest nickipositano video.
