Man it's hot. I'm not complaining! It is just so hot. Even at 9:30 at night, the air is so hot and humid. Plus 30 Celsius. I do love summer. I am experiencing so much stress at work that I have been forced to take a stress leave. Yesterday I went with my mom and granny to the valley . (Granny is visiting from B.C) www.dallasvalley.com where dad is cooking for summer campers. He invited us out for a turkey dinner during the lunch time. I enjoyed it very much. It was so peaceful to just sit and look out at God's creation. It was hot but there was a nice breeze blowing so it was not unbearable. The time away from work was so what I needed to forget about the strife and focus on the beauty surrounding me. I am thankful for the time I was able to spend out in nature and enjoy the beautiful landscape and summer weather. It made me forget the strife at work. I must say it was wonderful.

it's getting hot here, too. The humidity is horrible. Last week, though, when I was in Phoenix it was 100f at midnight! :)

It has been raining almost every day here... thunderstorms even.

Strange weather though for August in Singapore. It should be hot here too. We are seeing sunshine these past two days fortunately.

I have been stressed out with work too. I have applied for leave off work this Friday, after a Thursday National Day holiday, which adds up to 4 days off work with Saturday and Sunday. Yes!

It worked for you to be with nature, hopefully it will work for me too.

Have a stress-free week ahead. Take care.
