Right now it’s a whopping 32°C outside

Maddie ♥ watermelon

Up here in the chestnut forest we usually get it pretty good during summer as it never gets unbearably hot and humid like it does in the lower plains. Now, at 89°F under the shade, I’m wondering if this is just a taste of what’s to come. In anticipation of the heat, we created a sort of oasis with a big patio umbrella and lots of potted plants. The westie has given her paw print of approval.

    Barbeque weather? Our friends in Torino (Turin) finally understood and appreciated barbeque here and bought a Weber bbq while visiting and brought it back with them:-)

      Bbq culture is establishing a growing presence up north with all the Weber models available at french-owned Leroy Merlin stores. A friend in Milan digs the idea of beer can chicken and baby back ribs! In Belgium it was a hoot to hear our b&b proprietress talking about having a bbq at her house for the kids. In her own words “It’s good to learn about new cultures!” 😄

      We could be seeing some rainstorms next week but it’ll be nothing like your rainy season. Happy National Donut Day (and of course I don’t have any to eat at the moment).

      I might even look into a patio misting system just to freshen things up a bit more. It would be a real kick to see the dogs’ reactions to mist blowing in their face!

    Haha! Yes – everything is Maddie’s. How privileged are we to live in a Westie’s world??!

    In Oklahoma, it’s in the upper-80s with ridiculous humidity. It takes your breath away to go outside. We’re going to break out the kiddie pool for Jacques before much longer.

      It’s a relief that we only get up to around 60% humidity during the day. I just might look into getting a little pool since Maddie just loves getting into water!
