Halleluhua…was that a cool breeze I felt?

IMG_6834 Every morning for the past few weeks I wake up in my new nest energized to open windows and doors to welcome the cool ocean breeze in and everyday I have been disappointed. Hot, heavy, damp stagnant air seeps into our nest and stifles us. It’s not particularly fun when pushing, pulling and moving items around. This is not why Southern Californians (at least those nesting nearby the ocean) pay scaling rents and ridiculous mortgages. We are lucky to be shaded by regal Torrey Pines, however, once the fierce afternoon sun arches toward its westward evening destination, it feels like our nest is located where we just visited…a muggy summer in Manhattan. In fact, NY had the perfect temperature while we were there. Athens had its share of humidity, but at least it had a fair share of rain. I keep hoping it’s going to rain with all the unfathomable…

  2. Are you SURE you don’t live in Australia and are a bit confused about your geographical location? 😉 Seriously, the seasons are pretty stuffed up. We have only just started to get summer weather and it is well into Summer

    • we never had much of a summer last year. it never got really hot and lack of bees added did not make for a productive year :(. the only thing that did well for me was the herbs

      • It’s weird that it is late departing hey? We didn’t get much of a winter and it seems to be raining more now in Spring than it used to.

      • We are still getting rain and overcast days here and they are forecast right up to and after Christmas. Last year we had so much rain in Spring and early Summer that the topsoil on our steep block washed away and our driveway turned into the Grand Canyon. The weather is up the fritz and we are just going to have to learn to adapt methinks. I hope you don’t get a terrible winter. Nothing makes your feel more desolate then a long and terrible winter.

      • We have lots of trees on our 4 acres, we just need to get more ground coverage going on to protect the soil. Ground coverage other than weeds that is 😉
