The dreadful summer is here. And I know I have been talking about it for a long time now. But here it is really now. And it has been horrible.
Here is a news article on how it is going to be the hottest summer(50+C or 122+F) in the Middle East. In the last two weeks, UAE had recorded 51C thrice.
Well, we are feeling it already, even though it is barely summer, which is usually around July – August. And even though the temperature says 35- 40C, the feel like has been 48-52C.
Thankfully I live in an apartment that has about 7-8 large trees around, so we don’t feel it all the time. But we have started switching on our air-cons during the day as well.
On other news, as I mentioned in my previous post I have been going on walks in the nights. And I have been posting on photos of my walks on Instagram stories. Do check them out if you want to have a glimpse of my city.
What I read this week
I have been The Cousins by Karen M McManus this week. And it is my last desperate attempt to kick away the reader’s slump. I can see barely working, though.
What I watched this week
We caught up two new movies at the Cinemas this week and it has been almost a year since we went to such close and confined spaces.
But fortunately, the social distancing restrictions were pretty much well maintained and my nervousness eased up quickly.
- Conjuring – 3 – it was a bit of disappointment when you compare it with the other movies in the franchise.
- A quiet place 2 – I liked it. And it was more of a thriller than the Conjuring 3 movie.
On my blog
In case you missed the posts from my blog, last week.
