Summer proper arrived today. Well, at least that was what my wife said. I was reliably infomed it was 35c and knowing it always gets a bit hotter than the average where we are and I just checked todays weather before writing this and it said we had a high of 33c.
Too damn hot for moi to do much, and baking – and especially icing and decorating – isn’t any fun in this heat.
Thought I’m prune a bit off one of the lemon trees this morning, it’s been getting a bit tall and I’m not one for going up and down ladders these days. When I have to I try to sneak the ladder from it’s place without my wife noticing otherwise I hear the words, ”Be careful!” ringing in my ears. As if I’ll be careless on purpose, for goodness’ sake.
Not that I’m decrepit or anything, it’s just that I have a habit of coming down ladders the more direct route and whenever my daughter sees me fetch the ladder for any sort of job she invariably hollers: ”Wait! Let me fetch my cellphone, I want to film this.”
Sort of gurantees I’m cursed before I even begin.
Sigh … such is life.
Pruned and ready to go.
‘Bags’ of lemons.
Once again we are fortunate to have another bumper crop this year – a lot more than we can use or in fact need. I thought I’d fill a few boxes and pop them on the wall at the front with a sign: Free Lemons. Please take a box.
Might make a few people happy!
