The heat wave arrived at the same time as I. All the time I was away, I kept hearing about cooler and rainy weather here. Was hoping for a ‘liveable’ or perhaps even enjoyable summer. Not so. This is our fifth summer here and the first one was a shock … I wasn’t prepared for all that heat and humidity. It’s the latter, most of all, that makes it so brutal and miserable — the «misery index» would make it 35C here today. Poor people who have to work in this … road construction …roofers, just to mention a few!
All birds and animals seem to have gone into hiding too, except this little guy — an American Song Sparrow.
I turned off the ‘Photostream’ on my iPhone, then, for some reason I turned it on again, and they all came back?! With my brain feeling like it’s melting I had to stop thinking about this. I understand about the iCloud, the quota and all that, but when I began to think about where this cloud was and where I could get a hold of it, I gave up. I’ll just keep the Photostream for now. Think I managed to get rid of a few though. I plugged in the phone, copied all pictures I had there and put them on my external hard drive, then I deleted them. When I turned the Photostream on again, there were less! I must admit I find it somewhat confusing.
I have set up an Instagram account now and will try and be more active there so perhaps it gets to be more fun.
