I had forgotten how sensitive I am to summer weather. When I'm hot, I get unbearably cranky. On really, really hot days like today when I feel like I can't breathe, it's like the pressure is building and building and there has GOT to be some release soon or else something crazy will happen. But invariably when it gets like this, the first roll of thunder and flash of lightning sets me free and I feel better than I can remember ever feeling, and then the rain pours down and I feel that total release I had been looking for all day long.

We had a gorgeous dinner on the back porch, rain blowing all over us, thunder and lightning providing free entertainment. We had a bottle of wine and the most amazingly wonderful thrown together at the last minute quiche (grated parmesan dumped in the pie shell, portobello and cippolini onions. Unexpectedly fabulous. It was so pleasant. Then ice cream for dessert, and Philip shattered a little glass bowl on the stone floor. Oops.

Still uncomfortably hot inside. I walked in the rain in the backyard and was freezing. It was such a nice break from the heat.
