That picture of trees against a blue sky is misleading. The sky is rarely blue here. Usually it is more of a gray or brown color. I find the choice of photo in this app annoying.
It is June 1st today! The beginning of Summer! And I am so glad we are going back to the states for a while this year. I don’t remember being this uncomfortable last year, and we stayed through the summer months. Maybe we stayed inside more. Maybe it wasn’t as hot last year. Maybe it’s because I’m pregnant. Either way, I find I am not enjoying the increasing temperatures. By 10:00am there is no longer shade to walk in, and it isn’t until about 5:00 that it starts being bearable outside again. When we go to the pool in the morning, we are usually walking back to the house around 11:00, and it is a hot walk home.
However, we have enjoyed some time out at the pool in the evenings and have cooked out on the grill with friends. We even tried making some s’mores, but something is wrong with the marshmallows I bought here. They don’t melt. They stay chewy on the inside even when the outside has been perfectly toasted by my loving husband. (I didn’t want to stand that close to the extra heat of the fire!) I am looking forward to more cookouts in the fall! And I may have to add marshmallows to my list of things to buy in the US.
