We've had all kinds of weather today. The day started out lovely with breakfast on the front porch. Later in the afternoon the winds changed direction and velocity. The temperature rose to a toasty 108 F. It was like a furnace. We spent the afternoon inside; the kids studied for their exams, hubby worked on paperwork and I sat on the sofa with my laptop, chatting with friends and reading. Ibrahim played with his matchbox car collection.
In the evening I had to go out to the shops to pick up a few things, mainly snacks to help the kids through their studies. I looked at my car parked in the driveway. It was covered in a thick layer of sand. I considered hosing it off, but then just decided to see if most of the dust would blow off as I drove. If the weather outside was hot you can only imagine what the interior of the car felt like. One day I think I will try baking a cake in my car just to see if it would work!
The hot winds blew me into a shop and ten minutes later I stepped out of the shop to find the temperature had dropped about 20 degrees. Shortly afterwards it started to rain.
What weird weather! I wonder what tomorrow will bring.
