It was pleasant being out today, wearing a light fleece and sandals. You could have knocked me down with a feather, when, according to the temperature gauge it reached 17.5 Celsius,
(63.5 F). The wind chill must have made it feel cooler.
Tonight, as I look out of my open window I see it is still bright, there is a golden glow suspended around us as far as the eye can see. The fierce winds seem to have subsided, the branches of the few trees that there are, are fairly still. I can hear a bird sing, it is sweet. Sheep and their sturdy lambs are grazing leisurely in the nearby fields.
