My 10th Blog Award

Carolyn in New Zealand from Draffin Bears Little Bear Studio, passed on yet another award. Thank you so much Carolyn!
So this award I'd like to pass on to:
  • Sue and her handyman from Beach Bungalow
  • Biene from Schlaflos in NRW with her Adoption Office for the most unique bears and other cuddly toys (English too!)
  • Adrienne from The Rich Life (on a budget)
  • Gwenny from Gwenny's Way
Please do have a look at these ladies' great blogs and you might want to follow them.
Wishing you a great weekend ahead!

We were blessed with some much needed, heavy rains on Thursday after a very hot Wednesday.
Look at the RealFeel around 3:17 PM...
Oops, that chocolate for sure did melt...

  1. Hi Mariette, Happy Friday to you! My son went a few blocks away to buy ice cream at the bakala the other day and by the time he ran back home, it had already melted in the bag. :/

    How lovely to have citrus trees in pots. WE can get them here but I am afraid they would not survive. Hubby walked again last nite but with a temp of 113 and humidity at 25% he came back as if he had taken a swim in the ocean.

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Blessings, Tammy

    Oh,how lucky you were to have rain fall, makes me so jealous p;)
    Too hot and dry to weed and my garden looks a bit mess.

    I feel like I'm hibernating.

  11. Hi Mariette!

    Thank you so much for the wonderful award! I have so enjoyed getting to know you a little better. And look forward to many more chats.

    I had to look up how hot 44C is in Fahrenheit - it's 111F! That must have been dreadful, especially with humidity. Luckily, the rains are cooling you off a bit.

    Have a wonderful Friday!

  14. Herzlichen Glückwunsch, liebe Mariette!
    Wow, so warm ist es bei uns leider nicht. Für Juli war es heute ab dem Nachmittag schon fast ein wenig herbstlich. Die Felder sind schon fast alle gemäht. Sonst steht das Getreide bis in den August.
    Aber ich denke mal, im August kommen dann die heissen Hundstage noch, wie das hier oft der Fall ist.

    In letzter Zeit komme ich wegen vieler privater Dinge nicht so viel rum, wollte aber heute doch mal wieder ein paar liebe Grüße hierlassen.
    Sara
