rainy summer days

Our unusually hot spring has been followed by a cold, rainy summer. For days we’ve had fog and drizzle and heavy rains with only few bits of sunshine in between. And the forecast says much of the same is to follow in the next days and weeks.

I’m not complaining.

Living in a top floor apartment, hot summers can be hell. We had some unbearably hot weeks last year . I actually like a fresh wind and though I could do without constant rain, I don’t really mind that much. I have a good rain coat and on barn days both the pony and I are much more eager to work when it’s cool.

Other than that we’ve been lying low at the weekends, sleeping a lot and trying to catch up on emails and friends and ideas (oh, the ideas…). By the way, I got on Pinterest and now I’m hooked. And so inspired. More and more ideas.



This is the best tea I’ve had in years: Fresh peppermint leaves, fresh ginger or ginger syrup, limes, honey and candy sugar. Heaven.

I couldn’t resist another photo of the kitties. So sweet those two.

      Sherrie, the tea was made with fresh ginger (I had it in a restaurant and took a picture to remind me to copy the recipe at home). I have made the ginger syrup though but haven’t used it much yet. I think I prefer the taste of fresh ginger.

      I can imagine, especially after the heat waves in the US that I’ve been reading about! I guess Central Europe is by now pretty sick of the rain. I still like it better than unbearable heat though ๐Ÿ™‚
