So, no need to check the weather forecast for the next 10 days.
Howsit where you are?
After close to two weeks of constant RAIN the sun is back and so is our beautiful blue sky. The good news is that during this time our reservoirs have gone from less than 30% to more than 50% full, which is wonderful. I’ve only gone through one serious drought in Sevilla, with water shortages and restrictions, and now it looks like we are going to be spared that this summer. 🙏🏻
It’s officially winter and we are being blessed with RAIN which apparently will continue until the end of next week (Dec 30th). Luckily I clued in on this over the weekend and got tons of laundry done (both this week’s sheets and next week’s too) and so I am ready to mostly stay home and do cosy home stuff. Given that Omicron has just put Spain back into the HIGH RISK covid category, this is also a good thing. Hopefully the rain will keep people at home (but remember to support your favourite restaurants by ordering in!). Once again trying to “save Christmas” has put us all at risk. I don’t know about you but I can have Christmas anytime anywhere. But I do hope that you enjoy yours and also stay safe. xx
Last night I fell asleep to the sound of rain falling on the patio roof, something I’d not experienced for several months, and thought about how nice it is to listen to the rain when you’re all dry and cosy inside, especially when all tucked up in bed with a couple of cats. Then I thought about the wildfires that had been raging in the Málaga mountains since last Wednesday and hoped that these couple of rainy days would help put them out.
Woke up this morning to the wonderful news that the fires were now under control and sent the above tweet from bed… a few minutes later it dawned on me that IT’S NOT MONDAY, IT’S TUESDAY. Oops. So I corrected myself in a follow up tweet but not before getting a few “you need coffee!” type of replies. Which was true of course, but it’s equally true that I often don’t know what day it is any more. Whatever! It’s a happy day. And I’m extra happy because I am doing my first sherry tasting of the year this afternoon. So Happy Tuesday everyone! 🙂
