So yes, the weather gods did bring us some very hot weather over the weekend here in my neck of the woods.
It is actually kind of gruesome when this kind of heat hits us with a grand slam in the month of May. BUT, since we have AC everywhere you can easily escape said heat when it gets to be too much.
Saturday was way worse than Sunday as far as the heat index goes.
We took a shorter walk mid-day Saturday (stupid of us to walk that late in the day, but we did run some errands in the morning) and it was like torture to be outside.
Sunday, we actually took a little hike in some very shaded woods. It was bearable, really. We were out for a couple of hours and we brought plenty of water with us.
These flowering bushes smell so good. I do not know what it is. I once thought it was blackberries in bloom, but I do not think so anymore. I love them, though. My iPhone tells me it is some kind of rose, but I am not buying it.
Sometimes you have no choice but to cross the creek. How do you like this overpass? Me, I am not a fan of these at all. They sorta give me the creeps. BUT, one has to do it.
And mid-hike we got to this meadow. Well, I think you can imagine how hot it was here as the sun was blazing down on us.
On the banks of the creek
Sunday night a large thunderstorm broke this very heat spell, and now we are back to more normal temps again.
We will also get a lot of rain today, but that is OK.
Yesterday evening Peter and I received our second Covid boosters shots.
So now it’s been four shots all in all. I wonder how many more we’ll have to take?
It is OK with me to get boosted once (or twice) a year, as long as it protects me. I am not sure how potent these boosters are against new variants of this never ending, boring and way over played virus though … But, I am sure it helps to an extent anyway.
So, we’ll see how I am feeling today (this is pre-published, as always). I was so tired and beat after the three previous shots. Peter was, too. But it’ll be OK, the side effects only lasts 24 hours (or so we can hope …). I’ll let you know how we are doing in the comment section today :-)
All right you all, have a good Tuesday!
