T stands for Too HoT yet again!

Hi Everybody!

I'm moaning again - it's still much too hot here for my taste, and I was really ill at the weekend because of it, so I'm hoping that sooner or later our climate will get back to normal. But I did notice more people up and about early this morning to get a walk in before it heats up too much.

On Tuesday we are starting a new challenge at 
Tag Tuesday and this time our lovely Michele has chosen the theme -
You can read more about it at our Tag Tuesday Blog.

This is a difficult theme for me, as I must confess to not really feeling inspired by Bingo, but I did my best, mixed it with Alice and this was the result:

Today is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, so here a hearty welcome to all of the lovely ladies of the T Gang. I have 2 photos of some refreshing drinks taken when we made a break at 'The old Ferry' a couple of weeks back. I had cola light and H. had an apple Schorle, which is apple juice mixed with mineral water:

We had some beautiful sunrise scenes again this week:

I counted about 20 people on my walk today - that's a record!

And a visit to the shops -lots of crockery on show!

Summer decorations at the stationer's:

And more pretty cups and beakers:

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

Mid week this and that

Hi Everybody!
It's still extremely hot here, this morning at 9 am the outside thermometer showed 39° (in the shade!) and inside was 36°. It's getting to be too much for me. I go for my walks very early to enjoy the slightly cooler early mornings temps.
I have another face painted last week, this time using different colours. I think she is an underwater maiden. The background was textured with a brayer and then stamped with a crackle pattern, into which I rubbed some blue with a sponge. I am linking to Paint Party Friday and to Simon Wednesday Challenge, anything goes

This is a hybrid collage:

Some photos from my early walks:

The trees have lost lots of leaves, it's looking like autumn:

I wandered round the castle ruins, it was shady there:

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

T stands for Too HoT

Hi Everybody!
It's another sunny and much too hot day here, and there is no sign of a break yet.
At least I don't need to fly to the tropics, we're getting tropical weather here for free, whether we want it or not.

I would like to remind you that there is still a week to go to enter our Nautical/seaside challenge at Tag Tuesday:

Tuesday is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, so here a warm welcome to all the nice ladies of the T Gang:

 On Sunday I was surprised to see deer playing on one of the meadows near the Rhine, as I have never seen them there before:

The crows were astonished, too:

Hercules was pushing 2 barges along the Rhine:

  The gulls were all tired:

 Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
