      1. Working on it! Just having some downpours to cool off some of the sticky heat … before we get to be hot and humid again. πŸ™‚ I think of it as a quick refreshing shower, with sound effects … (thunderstorm).

  1. SMiLes Dear Xenia Hopefully
    The Heat Dome Isn’t Impacting
    Your Part of Scotland too Severe as
    i Never thought about so Many People
    in the UK Who
    Have No Central
    Air-Conditioning
    As We Do In the United States
    Hehe of Course i Lived Without one
    in Car And Home Here For Many Many
    Years As A Child Growing Up on the River
    Downtown in Northern Florida Where Winters
    Were Still Damp and Very Cold For A Skin And

    Bones

    Kid Like
    me Unusually
    More Robust Now
    At 62 The Heat and
    Cold Doesn’t Bother me too
    Much as i haven’t Worn Long Pants
    Since Early 2013 Still So Nice to Have

    Climate Controlled
    Inside as We’ve Surely
    Had Our Share of 40C Heat
    Already too in Florida With SMiLes

    HAha as a Child i Remember Turning
    the Pillow Over and Over again sweating
    At Night Just Hoping to Make A Cool Spot Happen

    Then my my
    Yet YeS How Many
    Advantages Technology
    BRings Yes a Hot Water Heater
    too as We Boiled Water For Hot Baths Then

    In Such A Cold and Damp Unheated Bathroom then
    Oh What We May Appreciate More For What We Once

    Did not Enjoy…

    Warm Or Hot
    Cool or Cold
    Happy Life Dear
    Xenia With SMiLes..:)

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words and for sharing these special memories dear Fred. The temperatures reached 26C here, which is very warm for the Highlands, and those further South in the heat dome experienced 41C. So lovely you can now enjoy cool air when you need it and we wish you and Katrina a happy Friday and blessed weekend too! πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ’«

      1. Oh Goodness Dear
        Xenia Glad You Are
        Protected Somewhat
        In The Highlands of
        Scotland At 26C Yet
        41C In The South of
        Scotland so Invasive
        As Airport Approaches
        And Other Roads Are
        Melting And Buckling
        And Even Roofs Melting
        And Water Mains Breaking All

        Around The
        World The Message
        Is Clear Balance or
        The Karma of Nature
        Will Simply Now Make
        Consequences For
        Continuing Actions
        Of Human Ignorance

        Oh What it
        May Take For
        More EYes to
        Open Dear FRiEnD

        This the only
        Home We Are
        Evolved to Live On

        Now Oh All The Hot
        And Cold Rocks
        In Space With No

        Life Lost Appreciation
        For The Balance of

        Nature
        Creating
        Paradise
        Now Real Here 🏝🦈🌈☺️
