Oh What a Lovely Summer's Day

This has been a hot sunny summer's day here in New Zealand and I've managed to get outside and enjoy it. I'm down to the last stage of getting my book finished before it goes to the editor in five days time. I've worked long hours over the last week or so, but now I only have to finish the bibliography. It should all be finished in time, so I've enjoyed a small break today. What better way to start Saturday than a walk to the nearby market to stock up on fruit and vegetables. Then the usual Saturday chores, before settling down to the book. This afternoon was too nice to be inside, so it was lawn mowing and gardening outside. Now I'm ready to pour a glass of wine and cook a seafood paella for dinner.

Its wonderful that you have taken the time to keep us posted. Good Morning from me and a Good Afternoon to you. We are having some great days weather wise - Warm with lovely light showers in the late afternoons. I love paella but not of the seafood kind - I go for the Vegetarian one

Its winter here for us. I don't mind at all to be honest. I hate the heat of the hot summer. I am glad your enjoying it.

It hasn't got too hot yet, but I did feel the heat while mowing the lawn!

@valmnz I hope it was not that bad for you. That is one chore I would not ever want to do.

That all sounds wonderful, from the warm weather, to finishing up your book, to seafood!

We have about two months before it should be nice here again. We received lots of snow overnight.

It is much too cold here to walk to the market this a.m. As soon as it warms a bit, we will drive there!

Good evening to you from sunny and cold Switzerland. It is a beautiful day, we had four days of fog, but today is beautiful. Unfortunately clear days are colder.
