The hottest day

 

Another lovely Gazebo ,and look at the sparkling  stream doesnt it look cool ,Donna made this lovely graphic I wish I was there. Dont you ?Well as I told you I went to see Jean yesterday ,and we had a lovely day together .As you will imagine alot of nattering was done !

I caught the bus to Peterborough ,and took a couple of pictures ,from the bus window as you will see this weather is perfect for getting in the harvest ,I got to P'boro had a short wait untill the bus took me to her house ,she came to meet me because I had rung her from the bus ,We sat in the garden with lovely drinks ,we decided coffee was what we wanted ,We then got brave and went for a walk ,to the shopping precinct near where she lives ,we managed to find some bargains ,and then Pete picked us up ,so we didnt have to walk back .

By this time Maurice had finished work,and was at Jeans house where ,yes ,she did feed us ,we had a delicious salad and then trifle which believe me was yummy ,After tea ,we went into the garden again where the men were planning a fishing trip,Jean and I naturally continued to chat/gossip/natter as Sisters do  ,until it was time for Maurice and I to go home ,Maurice is now at work ,he's on nights for two, then off for six days ,he is taking some much needed holiday .

I am sure by now you all know that today has been the hottest July day since records began ,I hope you are coping with the temperatures ,Have a good cool?evening everyone ,and hope you manage to sleep....with love

Glad to hear you had a good outing and a gossip with your sister.  Today has been the hottest day of July ever since records began... supposed to be having thunderstorms tomorrow, bizarre but the good news is it will get cooler from tomorrow onwards!

Hi Jan. I hope you don't mind me pulling up a chair and sitting by your fan. Your pictures are so beautiful. That sky is so blue, it doesn't look real. I am not coping too well with the heat I must admit. Jealous of your trifle...mmm my favourite pudding is my moms sherry trifle. Sending you and yours loads of love and hugs Charline xXx

Hi Jan,  I could sit here looking at your entry all evening.  I`m sure I could feel the cool air coming from the fans....sigh, it must be the heat playing tricks on me again...lol!  You and Jean look really cool sitting under the gazebo, glad you enjoyed your gossip together.  Is it really harvest time already?   it`ll be Christmas before we know it! :o))))

Well I keep hearing about the hottest day etc etc but here on the east coast of Scotland it has been cloudy all day and as the day wore on it became misty and damp! Oh well we have had some nice days ...and theres always tomorrow.!!  Glad you had an enjoyable day  jan visiting Jean.  Eve x

It is hot here but I don't know what the record hot is for this day. I do remember it was a record hot on the day my mother died in 1995. It was 105º. It is supposed to reach 100 here today and right now it is 97. I will be glad when it gets cooler. Glad you had a nice visit with your sister. Helen

faircolleen said...

Sounds a perfect day with your sister. . hello Jean!! Love the one of you in Jeans garden.

oddb0dkins said...

Yep, it's hot alright, but strangely, it tried to rain a little while ago. Not a cloud in the sky, or so it seemed, yet it tried to rain!? B. x

I'm glad you had a good day and got fed too! It's been baking here today, I don't mind how hot it gets ....it's the cold that bothers me! Have a good weekend. Jeannette xx

You are lucky to have such a beautiful gazebo to enjoy on a hot July day.  Isn't it great to have a sister to spend time with?  It sounds like you two always enjoy each other's company so much!   Kathy

Well so much for the hottest day because it was the coldest we'd had in weeks in abdn...Was a sudden drop from around 30 degrees to 15 degrees...But we didn't have rain...It was forecast pouring rain for today and it's very warm and very muggy instead...Need some thunder to clear the air and get rid of the close stickyness   Caff xxxx

Jan,

So nice that you had a good visit with  your friend! :)

This weather is terrible!  It's hot everywhere in the world I think.. except for maybe Iceland or the Antartica!

It's supposed to be 111 today where I live!  I'm hating it, let me tell you!
