Summer arrived this past weekend. It got up into the mid to high 20s (Celcius). You all back in the States are going to laugh at such summer temperatures, but we have gotten so used to the cool weather here that it actually felt hot. But the rain was back yesterday and last night, so all is back to normal. The days are getting shorter; last night it was dark at 10:30. Bedtime in broad daylight at 11:00 PM took some getting used to, but I'm already dreading the very short days of winter to come. In the meantime, the grass grows, the cows moo, and we cherish each hour of sunshine we get.
