A hot hello to all my followers

    1. I remember visiting friends all over Europe one hot August – half the hotels we stayed had A/C and the others didn’t. Sleeping was tough.

  1. Thanks for the shout-out. I hope you’re able to stay cool. We’re in Washington State with temps at 103 today.

    1. Yikes! We’re in the upper 90s, so not much cooler and with the humidity and heat index gets to 110 or so. No one is outside. Thank heavens for A/C.

  2. You’re always so kind to acknowledge new followers, Noelle. I love that. Coastal Oregon has missed the heatwave, I’m happy to say. In fact, we’re having a cool summer compared to normal (I lit a fire in the woodstove on Tuesday to warm it up a little). My heart goes out to all those people everywhere who are suffering under intense heat. Stay cool.

    1. A cool day and a wood fire sound so lovely right about now. I am NOT a hot weather person, although I do love swimming! But now the pool is like a warm bath which is what I prefer swimming in March, April, May and September and October!

    1. Would love to go to the beach, but it is so hot there are well. Temps over 100 with the heat index. September and May are great months for the beach here! The pool I use is small but I can do aerobics in it – it’s really warm, though, like bathwater!

  3. Here, in the Forest of Dean in southwest England, we reached 95F at the height. Whilst such temperatures are great for a holiday in the Mediterranean, Noelle, they are difficult here because of our lack of suitable housing to deal with such heat. Now retired, I feel extremes of both heat and cold, so modifications to lifestyle are necessary.
    On a different note, I’d like to thank you for listing the links to your followers. I’m currently rather busy, but I’ll be returning here later to investigate those followers to discover whether we have anything in common. Great idea of yours to do this!

      1. No air conditioning here, of course. And our homes are rarely adequately insulated. As for swimming, some people do that in the river a mile down the village road. I don’t fancy that, as it’s known to be polluted with farmyard runoff and, occasionally, raw sewage!

    1. What a lovely comment! Thanks, Teagan. I hate to say it but I am looking forward to autumn, as are a lot of people steaming in the US this week, I bet!

  4. Hi Noelle – great to find some new blogs to follow. Thanks for sharing all these links. Hope you’re staying cool and that the weather improves. Still very hot here too!
