This past weekend was HOT! 118 degrees in the daytime, and Saturday night at 9:30, it was still 113!
I am wishing for fall. I'd love to see some below 80 degree weather, some fall leaves, pumpkins, and be thinking about making an apple pie or hearty soup or stew. I am tired of salads, and a 97 degree pool.
My favorite times of the year to go to Italy are May and September. If I could stay for three months, I would shoot for September, October and November. Yes, I know it would get below my comfort zone of 70, but right now, that sounds good! Food and wine festivals, olive harvest, truffles, and the orange and red vineyards in all their glory... Next year there is a September trip planned!
Soon we will get a break from the heat, as Friday, we will be going to Portland and Seattle for a visit. After that, it will be back home for two more months of hot weather, capris, sandals and time in the pool.
