    Too hot (more so humid and sun beating down) 

    Only saving grace is it's a little cooler from 8 or 9 pm (Early Morning if up early)

    It's been a nice change from the dull first half of the year weather wise, but it always makes me feel so tired when it's this warm

    I voted yes but I've spent most of the day in an air conditioned car.

    I wonder what I would have voted if I'd been doing manual labour outside. :D

    I do like it when the sun is shining, and it does look much nicer than a cloudy overcast day.

    However, the warmer weather means more pollen, which doesn't help when you have hayfever, :/ plus more bugs. :fearful: Also, due to having RA, if it's too warm with the added humidity, my joints swell up. 😓

    Besides, it is much easier to warm up then stay cool. Although, it is also nice to have reduced heating costs for a bit. 🤣

    I love the warm weather. Though like most midday can be a little too much. Evening from 5pm to 7pm before dinner with a Gin or two is lovely. 💕
