A Perfect Day for Cuddles

The weather turned a tad chilly today. The mountain is still in hiding, we have had several showers of rain and tonight quite a cool breeze has picked up, making the temperature drop even further.

When my seven-week-old grandson arrived for a visit, I discovered the cooler day was perfect weather to cuddle him while he slept. And how could I resist this tiny face? I simply had to take a sneaky photo while he slept. 💙

A cooler day than yesterday

Even the storm that hit yesterday afternoon didn’t succeed in cooling the temperature. I don’t know what it reached – 32 or 33 degrees C maybe – with so much humidity that even when I sat completely still, beads of sweat tickled my skin as it ran in streams down the centre of my back.

Today has been so much cooler. You would think by looking at the ominous clouds in the photo that it rained all day – it didn’t. In fact, I don’t think it has rained at all in the last 24 hours.

My apologies for not replying to comments or visiting other blog sites these past few days. I have been otherwise occupied by various different commitments, including grand-puppy sitting, grandchild sitting, and packing up my kitchen. Yes, the time has finally arrived – my old kitchen will be removed on Wednesday morning in preparation for the installation of a sparkly new kitchen. I’m so excited!

Finding places to store the contents of my kitchen cupboards has been a challenge. It’s only through rearranging cupboards in other rooms around the house that I am finding places for everything. It’s nearly 10pm now, and after adding today’s post I am going back to kitchen sorting again for half an hour before going to bed. 🙂
