2. I left my suitcase unpacked and instead started to sort out the pictures I had taken. Unfortunately I had an appointment with my gynaecologist in the afternoon, for the yearly check up. Mr. G. had filled the fridge so I didn't even have to go shopping.
3. Finally I pulled myself together, unpacked my suitcase tidied up the house a bit and spent then the afternoon outside on our terrace. The gardener came to trim the bushes all around, but he only did half of it, because it was too hot and the poor man was in full Ramadan and not allowed to eat or drink. At 4 pm it started to rain a bit and then we got terrible thunderstorms and rain. I had to go inside although I was sitting under the pergola, but the lightnings approached ! The water was running down our street, like a river I had never seen that in the over 40 years I live in this house !
Of course there were lots of damages, electricity cuts etc. We had nothing fortunately.
These pictures were in our local Newspaper and show the streets around my area. Fortunately hour house sits on the top of a hill !
4.The next day the sun was shining again and the poor people could clean up their flooded houses. It will be a huge bill for the insurance companies !
We had the visit of Mr. G's young friend Chris, whom I always call our adopted son (they have nearly the same age). He came at 2 pm for an hour but at 5.30 pm he was still there, we sat in the garden and watched Oscar the lawn mower robot working, Chris had never seen that and was really captivated, we had to laugh, sitting in the garden and watching a robot ! We chatted a lot and he asked for some advices which only a woman could give him, that's what he said, I did my best. It was a very nice afternoon.
5. I went to my painting course and it was nice to see the girls again. I started a new pastel painting. As usual we had a lot of fun ! The afternoon I spent sitting in the garden, it was nice and warm, cat Rosie was running behind a butterfly but without success. Instead I found a half eaten mouse in the living room ! I wonder if she wanted to contribute to our supper !
After the mouse meal she had to eat some salad to digest and I had to get rid of the left overs !
