According to the calendar – this is summer. It is August, isn’t it? I turned the air conditioner off a couple of weeks ago, which is fine. I don’t mind if the temperature doesn’t get into the 30’s C, but it would be nice if it was in the mid 20’s or so.
I had to close the windows last night because it was getting just a little chilly in the house. I’m not going to put the heat on!
August is supposed to be hot and dry – at least it is usually hot and dry, but although the days are mildly warm (low 20’s) – the nights are chilly (low teens). It was warmer than this in South African last August – but that was in their winter. The temperatures were in the mid to high 20’s during the day and the nights were similar to what we’re having here now.
Yes, my thoughts keep drifting back to South Africa since one year ago today, I was preparing to head out on my own tomorrow. With the help of Penny and Jurek, I picked up what I would need (including my little car and some food). You can read about it here.
Chester and I had our walk along the Red River this morning and as usual lately, the critters were all in hiding. All except one crow anyway – so I snapped his picture.
