Heatwave

July 11 2009

1. It’s July. How has the weather been where you are?

We've had very warm weather last week, but it has changed to more acceptable weather.
It's a pity it comes with loads of rain and bad weather.
Last night we were downstairs twice because the lightning was too bad.

2. What is the best way for you to beat the heat?

Keep calm, drink enough and stay cool at the computer. LOL!

3. “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.” Do you buy that?

Oh yes, I do.
We can have very high humidity here and it makes you feel closed in.
The body can't get rid of the warmth anymore. So you start to feel just like when it's much warmer.

4. Do you like hot tubs or saunas?

Because of my asthma I'm not allowed to go to the sauna.
And with all the care for the kids I can't take a bath anymore, just a quick shower.
We don't have those hot tubs in the garden people in some countries have.
I don't think I would enjoy sitting in a thing like that with others.
Swimming is much more fun.

5. What’s the hottest you’ve ever been?

Somewhere of 38 or 40 degrees celcius in the shadow.

6. How many times do you hit the beach in the summer?

Last year I went there for the first time in 23 years. Just for a few hours.
We're living too far away.

7. When you were a kid, what did you do in the summer?

Play with water.
Go with friend to the woods and play there.

8. Surfing. Have you ever gotten on a surfboard? Body surf?

No, never.
But I've seen those surfers with a parachute last year.
They jumped 7 to 8 meters. Wow!!

9. What’s your favorite summer song?

Summertime from Porgy and Bess, sung by Janice Joplin.
Ofcourse I always sing it with her. LOL!

  6. I can't stand humidity either. There is nothing worse than taking a shower and feeling gross immediately after.
