WOW! It was so hot yesterday, my thermometer for outside was reading 40°Celsius!! In actual fact it was just 37°! According to the meteorologists it's supposed to cool down today ... to an amazing 33°! OK I know I lived in Kuwait, Qatar and Dubai but hey we were spoilt there and had air conditioning everywhere we went. It's tough when one is not equipped for such hot temperatures. I am not really complaining. I think I can still take the heat much better than some of my European friends. Now, they really are collapsing in this heat.
We cooled down yesterday at the pool. It really was great! Just hanging out with a few of your girlfriends and the kids splashing and playing about. The nicest thing was I was really able to enjoy it ... I mean with head too. The last few weeks I have been working on a documentation and pushing time to meet the deadline. I finished it today and my deadline is on the 25th! So, after my final touch ups etc. I think I can relax and take it easy.
We are off to the grandparents this weekend. Tom's dad turns 60 and is having a party. We've got Soeren to learn a little poem by heart (in German) and he really has it down to the last word. The only thing that will get in the way is his shyness ... believe me even if it does not sound like he is a shy boy, when he has to do these things, his finger goes into his mouth and he is overcome by a great shyness.
Today's has a pretty great multi-grain roll, spread with this new herb flavored cream cheese I have tried out this week. A few mini salami sausages and cherry tomatoes and great healthy blueberries. More on blueberries and a great treat here. With that half a nectarine. A lovely soft french chinois goes with the last box of the week.
I think I would like to suggest a few slices of pastrami on that roll today. Add a bit of mustard - dijon a few caramelized onions and voila! A little mozzarella with the tomatoes, a dash of olive oil and balsamic vinegar makes a great salad. The rest stays.
Folks, I hope you all have a great weekend and if it gets too hot here's a little tip for you. Fill some ice cold mineral water in one of these spray bottles and take it with you. When it gets sticky and hot spray a little dose across your face, especially the temples, and neck. A nice refresher for in between.
