Summer Lovin

On the Verandah

Yesterday we endured our hottest day on record!  It was a work day for me and thanks to air conditioning, we got through the day quite well.  On returning home I discovered the power was out!  So at home, it was zero aircon, bags of ice from the supermarket to pack our cold food in, and pizza for dinner!  Lucky for us we were only out of power for a couple of hours.  Yikes it was hot!

Life has been easy going here at the villa and on the weekend we enjoyed a BBQ for Max's birthday with all my immediate  family there.  Back at work now with not much time to spare.  Morning walks are a great way to energise my day and Jess the Border Collie loves them too!  One day I will get back into the studio to do some painting, I miss it!

Love to all xx


  1. luckily weve cooled down a bit here in the west but we also got a battering with the heat - glad you managed to get through that hot/hottest day. are you anywhere near the fires? I dont know what happening in this country of ours lately with these hot hot summers!

  2. Happy New Year, Patti !
    Trying to send cooling thoughts to you hotties down under from up here in the Northern Hemisphere ! Glad to know you are making it through okay.
    I hope you get some creative moments soon. Think icy thoughts !

  3. Oh Patti, this splash of bright pink and talk of relaxing summer days was just the eye candy I needed! We've had torrential rain with water rising at our back door and the greyest of grey skies for days and days. It's good to remember it's just temporary and the sun will be shining on me soon in Mexico.

  4. Oh my! Hottest day on record and you lose power! I am sorry but it certainly sounds like you made the very best of it! I love having my house open to the air, but on those hot, hot days I so appreciate my air con!

    Your gorgeous pillows on that bench seat are so uplifting - bringing a smile to my face. Take care!!


please share a thought......
