It is the time of the year for me to start complaining about the heat and humidity. LOL, summer here in the UAE has just started inching towards the peak. We had 43C and a 100% humidity all through the week.
And as if that is not bad enough, we had strong winds with dust (but not enough to call it a dust storm) to cause visual disturbances.
I have some guests from India who are visiting the country in summer for the first time, and they are shocked at the heat and summer. We had a good laugh about their reactions to the weather. Now maybe they will stop saying “UAE’s weather is not as bad as India”, as if that is a competition.
Last week I took a trip to my library and grabbed a bunch of books hoping it would cure my reading blocks. Will it work? Only time will tell.
And in all the excitement about new books, I misplaced my library card and noticed it only after reaching home. Thankfully, the volunteer librarian has deposited at the lost and found, so I can collect it the next time I visit.
What I read this week
After a long time, I have something to say under this header.
I just finished reading In a Perfect World by Trish Doller. It took me on a trip to Egypt and the book is told through a young adult’s view of life.
I didn’t love it, but it got me out of my slump. My recent visit to the library might help me get out of it, I hope.
What I watched this week
I watched Angry Birds and The secret life of pets on Netflix this week. I wanted to watch something mindlessly after long days at work, and these are the ones that popped up on my screen.
What are your favorite shows/movies to run in the background like a white noise?
I will be linking today’s post with Caffeinated reviewer’s Sunday post Meme.
