It is HOT 🥵

Thats 102.2 in Fahrenheit. We are hunkered down. To make it worse there are fires. Most in Umbria are small (so far) but there are big ones in Tuscany, Lazio, and Trieste. The ones in Tuscany are said to be arson. I don’t get why someone would do that! It has made it so hazy you can’t see very far. Yesterday when we were driving back from Spoleto the mountains were just shadows.

Tonight we had a salad for dinner. I cooked the eggs, beans and potatoes in the morning while it was relatively cool. It was a perfect dinner. New potatoes, amazing tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, pickled onion (a new thing I tried), hard boiled eggs, avocado, olives and feta cheese. To finish it was drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkled with sherry vinegar and torn basil leaves from my plants. My idea of a perfect summer dinner.

We eat outside and then stay out and watch a movie. Once the sun sets it starts to cool. Every evening massive flocks of rooks fly over us to roost for the night like clockwork at nine pm.

I hope everyone is staying cool. We have no plans for the upcoming weekend, other than the Saturday market. Ciao for now!

    Hi Dotti,
    Of necessity, we have to look at more modern houses now. We need to be practical. The two penthouses would work for us. This week we see three inf Foligno. All are apartments, one is in the Centro, but very quirky.

    Hi Liz, I think Rocky WOULD go out in the worst of the heat and sun . . . IF I let him!🤣 which I won’t. Yes, there must be AC in a room or two. Or we can put in units like we did here. I hope Toronto is cooler!

    Dinner looks amazing! It is extremely hot here in the Midwest (St. Louis, MO) too! 100 – 103 F! The homes you showed were pretty nice! Soon you will find something wonderful going by what you’ve shown so far. In bocca al lupo!

    I guess that along with an elevator, you will need to make sure the A/C is working well. Us humans do not function well when it is 100 degrees outside. Is Rocky still lying out in the full sun?

    Aren’t you quite the night owl! I would’ve been asleep long ago, but it’s only late afternoon here; still 93 degrees and we live in the country next to a stream. Your dinner looks like an excellent summer meal and your photo of the birds at dusk perfectly captured the evening on your terrace.
