Happy Friday! We’ve had really hot days this week, the hottest so far being yesterday with 38ºC here in the South. Although we all prefer summer temperatures to rain, 38ºC is definitely too much for many people, including myself. I don’t mind having the shutters closed all day to keep the heat out of the house while I’m at work, but when I come home and on the weekends, I really don’t like hanging out in a dark-ish space just for the sake of keeping the heat out. It’s also getting unpleasant to break out in a sweat just from sitting there reading – or doing nothing. So this overly good weather is a mixed blessing.
I don’t have any specific plans for this weekend, except try some salad recipes I found online, because this weather just screams for light and fresh food. As for drinks, talking to my sister last night we found we’re both already at the stage where we’ve had enough of water to avoid dehydration, so it’s time to freshen that up as well with citrus fruit, apples, berries, mint… Do you have anything special you add to water in summer?
Wishing you all a pleasant weekend with bearable temperatures.
