Daisymum at Notes from Daisy Mountain issued a challenge – to post a photo taken there and then about how you felt at that time

This is Leroy – one of our Burmese cats – and he has found the perfect spot to get away from all the heat of the day. He chose under the deck by the old steps that are now hidden by the floor of the deck and he looks quiet and peaceful and unfazed by the heat.

Early this morning I closed up the house and turned on the cooling – we were expecting 44c/111f.

So for the best part of the day I have been knitting and thinking or reading with no tv or radio on to spoil the atmosphere of a cool quiet house.

Yes like Leroy this is how I feel at the moment, quiet and peaceful and unfazed by the heat
