Indian Summer

After 10 days of gale winds, lashing rain and dark stormy clouds flying across the sky, we woke up right in the middle of a lovely Indian summer. The winds are gone, everything is so still it feels a bit spooky but it is yet so much better than holding tight for your life. 
The temperature is surprisingly and unnaturally higher than usual. And most of all it's kind of sunny! 
You might find it funny that I am being ecstatic just because it's (notice the "kind of") sunny, but if you were living in Ireland you would know what I mean. We are not as lucky as the rest of the world about the amount of sunny days we have. Here it rains more often than not and most of the time even if it is not cold it is cloudy and we rarely see the blue sky. So every time there is a bit of blue sky overhead everyone is happy, joyful and the first thing people say when they meet is "Lovely day today, isn't it?!" 

I went up in the hills, nature was so peaceful and relaxed it felt as the perfect day out. It made me wish to share it with all of you. It's always good to spread the joy whenever possible. 

So smile, look at your blue sky and feel happy!! 

















That was yesterday. The Indian summer still feels like it's here because it is so warm but since the blue sky is gone and the clouds are grey and all over the place, it is not the same.

Anyway, keep smiling and hoping for blue skies...
