Every day is hot, over 36o mostly. The heat takes away all my energy. Its amazing how different I feel after a half hour in the air con but we only use that when it really is unbearable. Today was 2o cooler. Just 2o but it made a difference. We had a comfortable siesta with just a fan going .
I listen to audio books. Today it was 'Death of a Nurse'. A nice light detective series written by MC Beaton. The red haired Scottish policeman Hamish Macbeth solves a series of murders. It's the 28th book in the series. That's an awful lot of murders, all taking place in and around his little Highland town of Lochdubh. You get to know the characters and enjoy hearing what they're up to while canny Macbeth outwits his dimwitted senior officers and catches all the baddies. Easy listening.
25th July was one of the fiesta days of Saint Anne. There's a little church across on the mainland which is looked after by our son-in-law's family. Some years we go to the service. Show our faces. But this year it was just to hot to trek across to Galatas.
Dionysus Cafe sounds great. Do they serve cold beer?ReplyDelete
I was browsing online for potential holiday destinations and obviously thought of Poros (thanks to your unpaid efforts on behalf of the Tourism Department). I was tempted by your Dionysus Hotel. If only we could rely on the airports and flights... sigh ....ReplyDelete
I'm sitting at Dionysos cafe right now with my freddo espresso. It's a nice hotel but the position isn't the best. Just a view of cars whizzing past and the car ferry coming and going.Delete
Having problems commenting darn it.Delete
Go for it. See for yourself. But not during August
That is far too hot. I do hope we are not going to get those temperatures in our summer.ReplyDelete
I hope August is a few degrees cooler but the forecasts not good. Far too hot for comfortDelete
I do not do well in the heat. I’d have my aircon on 24/7 and if I had to starve to afford it. I wouldReplyDelete
At least in the winter you can put on lots of clothes but no one wants to see me with little or no clothes on. Trust me lol
Sitting under greenery and enjoying a few drinks does sound nice
Winter is so much easier. You just pile on extra clothes. A swim in the sea cools you down in the summer but it's such a hassle. Sometimes I just can't be bothered. Too hot even to change into togsDelete
Very hot here again too. Up at my son's barn conversion I told him to cover the new terrace with vines or wisteria; anything to make shade. He didn't, saying it would spoil the view. So, it's impossible to sit there in the sun. Shame!ReplyDelete
Natural shade is much much cooler. I hope he changes his mind and starts planting nowDelete
Oops we missed Agia Paraskevi - she is our local but in the opposite direction to our walk to work. Some years there had been a small fair in the streets around her, but that has faded during the covid years and may never come back. Life moves on - at least your sounds steady, reliable.ReplyDelete
These church fiestas are far quieter than they used to be before covid. Times have changedDelete
We are up to 30C here today by mid afternoon. Just about right for doing nothing and staying at home.ReplyDelete
Perfect. I could live with 30o. Have to wait a month nth or so for that darn itDelete
The heat takes away everyone's energy. Nice of you to have made it to the morning service of Agia Paraschevi church!ReplyDelete
I should try audio books too, I've been listening to alot of pod casts mostly about NZ crime and history, it's amazing what you can learn. But it's been like Spring here, we've had the odd cold days and nights but nothing like I expected.ReplyDelete
