Garden, Sundö, 15:35
Today has been blazing hot all day and probably the hottest day of the year so far.
Auo stopped work just after midday because she couldn’t stand the heat in the fields, and Camilla decided that she and Naa would stop for the day at 14:30.
It has been too hot to sit in the sauna house writing, because it feels like a sauna in there. Ha ha, oh my sides, etc. Instead I have been finishing Martin Seligman’s Authentic Happiness for the second time. I have this in paperback so I can sit outside in the sun and read it with no screen glare.
Now I am watching the cat who is watching me.
Later I will make proper egg butter, which we will have with warm karjalainen pies and fresh salad. After that Auo will practice her cello, and then the girls will spend as long a time swimming in the sea as they possibly can.
