My question to you:
What is the weather like in your place of living? (Indicate where you are writing from!)


  1. That was the topic of my lesson yesterday :) Maybe just the vocabulary was a little easier :) So yesterday was sultry however, about 1 p.m. was heavy rain. Today: it's still muggy I think :) but it will change on Thursday unfortunately... I'm loving hot weather!

    1. Such blistering heat is what you love? Wow! I am fed up with these high temperatures... you are sweaty non-stop, you can't sleep, etc. I don't mind temps between 20C and 26C, but when the 30C border is crossed, it's not nice any more...

  2. Recently in Poznań during the day we experience oppressive heat, while at night there are torrential rains and violent storms.

    1. Oh... SO you're a Poznań girl :) Great! Anyways, as I see, there's no difference between your and my weather here although it is getting a bit cooler now, which makes me feel much much better :)
