It finally turned warm for the first full weekend this summer. It turned really warm. And humid.
In the early evening, prior to sunset I thought I’d go and snap a few photographs–which I did– but as soon as I got in the vicinity of the back field I started getting eaten alive–and I had bug spray on!
Big storms came in tonight. They came up so quickly that the screen blew in at the front of the cottage and quite a bit of water came in too through the upper window which I have to go outside to close. I was too late though. The winds were so strong I could barely open the front door, never mind play around with a 12 foot window closing stick (I usually love using it–so simple yet effective–a wonderful example of something made by my grandfather, who with my dad, built these cottages that we all enjoy). Anyway I got some plastic sheeting and *lightbulb,* a large umbrella and after the worst of the first storm passed I went out and closed up.
Right now, I’m alone here as we are driving back to the States in shifts.
Despite the rotten weather the first two weeks here were OK and then I really wanted to be done with it.
Cabin fever, I suppose.
Also, things are so different here now. It’s like party central every weekend. The guy across the way shoots off fireworks well into the late evening (meaning near midnight) every. single. weekend and that crew is incredibly raucous until 2, 3, 4 in the morning.
I work at night as you can see from the posting time and me and a bunch of party animals just don’t mesh well.
You were here and so was I and it’s the same as it ever was, isn’t it?
