After the rainiest May in 200 years and a cold and bleak June, July arrived with a vengeance. Way to start your vacation with a heat wave like this. (Ok, I might already have had a week’s vacation but it’s still early, darn it) Temperatures had been soaring these past two days, although quite not as much as last year’s record breaker (yet). There has even already been a forest fire outside the city.
So guess who’s as happy as a pig in mud? Not about the fire though, that would be kind of strange, not to mention wrong. I meant the loverly summer weather. After a damp autumn, a cold winter, a still wet and cold spring and totally whining about it, it would definitely be a shame to complain now. Yay summer!
Still… No ups without downs. The lack of proper darkness during the night I can take. Sleeping in a hot bedroom during heat waves I can take. What I can’t take however is my damned grass allergy! My eyes are itchy and runny, my nose is clogged, itchy and runny… the sneezing, the itchy mouth and throat… And that’s with the medicine. *shout of frustration* AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHRRRRRRGGGGG!!!
With all that… be sure to be careful in the summer heat, people. Drink a lot of water and smear on as much sunscreen as possible. Oh…. And eat plenty of ice cream.
