A much nicer day! 84F, but the humidity is much lower, the sun is out and the sky is blue :)
Adam's dad gets a mysterious phone call.
Hot! 88F, though the humidity is not as bad as it could be. I shall go home and have my third shower of the day (one this morning, one at lunchtime after I finished cleaning out the boiler room, and now one to wash away the sweat of a dog walk).
The Them hear of a new arrival.
After a crazy weekend of circling the pool, the Heffernan's come home tonight (and so does Guinness), so Holly and I are back in the woods where we belong.
Warm, buggy and very sticky, 82F, but we're parked by the stream so Holly can finish with a dip :)
The demon and the angel experience paintball first hand.
85F, but the humidity puts the heat index at 105F!
Holly and I are just doing the short loop and then I'm going to take her back to Rye and leave her at home for the afternoon while I head to White Plains and the pool. When it's this hot she just doesn't know when to stop and ends up completely exhausted, so we'll stop on the way back to the car so she can have a swim in the stream and then she can enjoy the AC at home until I pick her up at about 5.
Mr Young meets his son?
It is ugly hot today! 77F but with 81% humidity it feels like 89F. Sunny and sultry and yugh! So just a short walk in the woods today and then Holly and I will both go and fall in the pool :)
Finally finished GoT yesterday and fancied something a little lighter for a while, so at my son's recommendation I have started Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett's Good Omens, read by Martin Jarvis. About 30 minutes in and I like it so far... it reminds me a bit of Douglas Adams.
Another lovely day. Low humidity, a nice breeze, sunny and 75F :)
I had some running around to do this morning, getting the boy to work etc., but after this I'm planning on spending the afternoon by the pool!
Dany walks through the grass sea.
(After 200+ hours I'm just over an hour from the end of GoT, or at least as much as has been written so far. I shall definitely listen to the next one when it comes out, but at this stage I'm ready for it to be over and I'm quite looking forward to something else!)
Very muggy and humid, 79F.
Didn't get here yesterday, what with thunderstorms and Colin's birthday and stuff. Still, it doesn't do Holly any harm to have a break as she's expending so much energy running around with Violet and Sparrow :)
Ser Barriston meets with his Queen's Council.
Back in the woods to give Holly a break! She's spent the last couple of days going round and round the pool, the problem being that it's very hot and she doesn't know when to stop so she is totally exhausted by the end of the day. She's smart enough to go in on the top step to cool off, but she won't take a break and stay still.
So this morning I brought her over to the church and she's spent a quiet morning at home; we'll do a nice quiet walk and then I'll leave her at home and pick her up when I pick up Crisp from work at 8. That way she can recover a bit :)
Hot and sticky today, 83F, with hazy sunshine.
Prince Quentin goes in to see the dragons.
