It's summer!

...or at least we've had the first couple of truly warm days this summer. As you probably all know, I suck at tolerating hot weather. While I like reasonably warm weather that allows me to go outside without putting on a jacket or any other "extra" layers of clothing, there's a long step between that and having 27-30 degrees, like we've had for a couple of days now.

Luckily, it doesn't stay that hot almost around the clock, though, so at least I'm still sleeping well and still feeling better in the evenings, when the temperature is more to my liking (or perhaps even bordering on cool even by my standards, but there's no way I'm going to complain about that!)

It's only May, and I'm already mildly complaining about temperatures? Errr, that's what I usually do in July or August. Not May. Warm days in May are supposed to be Good Things. Why am I such a weirdo about this?!

Perhaps I'm strange, but I'm already mentally counting months and days until September.

It's not that I don't want summer, though. I like summer - or at least I want to like summer, and sometimes I like it, too - but I don't like things like hot weather or feeling bad for not being outside enough or this whole feeling that "this is supposed to be the best time of the year, so you should try to be sensible and enjoy it!"

September is much more "my" month - it can still be warm and beautiful, but in a much more pleasant way than the summer months. Also, it's the beginning of autumn, which always makes me feel more inspired and alive. Plus, it's on the right side of summer, so the winter sports season doesn't feel quite as far away anymore either. (Yeah, can you tell that the list of cross-country World Cup races for the coming season was released today?)

Of course, the first race isn't until November...

I can't tolerate hot weather either. My sleep has been worse than it usually is. And at my workplace, I work on the second floor, and while there is supposedly air conditioning, there is no ventilation, no doors or windows. Gonna be a cruel summer. And here, it doesn't start cooling off properly until late October/early November. 😓

I hate hot weather! So far we've had more rain than usual this spring, which is OK with me except for areas of flooding that have caused problems for people. And it's delayed the flowering for some of my plants. Other than that it's held off the super-hot weather that I find hard to tolerate. We had a beautiful day yesterday with NO rain. I went into the city to meet my sister & brother and we visited our parents' grave site at the cemetery. On the higher ground it was fine but in the lower places we found the ground squishy and waterlogged below the grass. Today it has rained this morning but stopped now and feels quite muggy and warm. It's supposed to go up to 25 which is a bit hot for me. :)
