Eurovision, thunderstorms and more

Pixlr (4)Monday morning and ugh I am so tired. For once I can't complain about the cold because it's actually 66F (18C) this morning and is going to go up to around 84F (28C) this afternoon. But because of this and the humidity we had really strong thunderstorms overnight. We didn't go to bed till around 11.40pm or so. And the thunderstorms started just a little after midnight and probably lasted for a few hours. So I really didn't get much sleep. I was tossing and turning between the thunder, lightening, being kind of hot and just uncomfortable in general. Not a good sleeping night at all. 

The weekend had pretty nice weather in the low 70ies (22C). Saturday was really nice with bright blue skies and no humidity either. Sunday had a few more clouds and towards the end of the day the humidity definitely started to pick up. We still managed to get a nice 5 mile walk in on Sunday though. Went to the usual trail in Cheshire/Meriden where we tend to go when we want an easier flat but still pretty walk. I think that was the first time we actually went this year as the weather has been so miserable for most of the year. Usually we go at least a couple times before the leaves turn green but this year the weather was just not very cooperative. Let's see how it goes the rest of the year. 

Saturday was the Eurovision Song Contest so I watched that. It's one of those things where you had to grow up in Europe to understand it. Well, I still don't really always understand it (so many crazy costumes and antics *g*) but it's a guilty pleasure of sorts. The Netherlands won so next year's contest most likely will be held in Amsterdam I'd assume. I always enjoy the host country highlighting their country, showing off their destinations, cities, nature and so on. 

Well, let's see what this week will bring. Last week was busy at work. I am now mentoring a new person who started last week plus was also covering for someone who was out. This week I am covering today only so let's see how this week progresses. The one good thing, a light at the end of the tunnel so to speak, is that next weekend we have a holiday weekend with Memorial Day and we'll be away for it as well. Heading up to the Finger Lakes on Saturday. So just need to get through this week. :) 

Letter/Mail Update:  A letter went out to Celia/MA last week.
