SUMMER STOCK SUNDAY
more participants here at Robin's Around the Island
Although officially it's still summer, there is no doubt that the summer has left us until next year when hopefully we will have a little more than only three weeks of real summer temperatures in Belgium !
Meanwhile we had to put the heating on and in the mornings it's unusually cold 5°C (41 F) and in the evenings it's not a lot better. During the day it reaches max 15°C (59) this combined with rain makes a wonderful summer end and the weatherman probably got a nervous breakdown because he gets so many complaints.
So next week we will prepare our garden for the winter. The bushes and the hedge has to be cut, and I will call our gardener a very friendly young Morrocan. We can not do it ourselves, it's too hard work.
The only thing which still grows with pleasure is the grass ! I wonder why it doesn't stop with the cold ? Our lawnmower is not yet laid off !
So the only summer activity I did this week, was dreaming of my holidays to come and laying on the beach at the Red Sea in Egypt. Still 29 days to wait !
