For Sue Vincents writephoto prompt…
In the distance
Beneath the trees
A cloud filled sky
As morning comes
The light penetrates
As I sit
Wondering what to write
Like a lightning bolt
Thoughts begin to flow
I look up
At those rolling hills
And that glorious sky
With amazing sunlight
Thursday photo prompt: Reaching #writephoto
Through the trees
The sun gleams
Casting its reflection
On the still water
Dance and make
Me and everyone who sees them
And so full of joy and happiness
Where the sun shines
And where rainbows dance
Is a day of bliss

For better weather to come
Last year, in june, ireland experienced a heatwave. The temps rose, to an all time high. We had temps of 32 c, on the hottest day of the year!
It was an absolutely gorgeous summer last year. Ireland normally gets temps of between 15 and 21 c on an average summers day. So to have these type of temps was unheard of for us.
We relished them though. We took to the beaches, parks, and had BBQ’s, swam, went on day trips etc.
I remember going on a day trip to the beach with my mom, on one of the hottest days of last summer, we couldnt even sit on the beach, in case we would burn.
The weather is certainly doing weird things, lately.
I got an update from my sister today. She’s really enjoying her holiday, its really hot in the canaries, around 35 degrees c every day.
they took the kids to a zoo and a water park, go carting, and to the beach, there is a peer on the beach, the kids have been jumping off of it into the water and loving it.
Tomorrow she’ll be gone a week already. It went by so fast!
I’m glad she’s enjoying herself. Her partners sister came out there on thursday with her kids, and his other sister will be coming out on monday with her kids, and his mom and dad are there already they went at the same time as my sister and her partner.
We’d have gone too, if my mom was able to travel, but with her COPD she isnt able to fly long distances.
Once upon a june…
I love the month of june. I love it because its summer time. There is so much to do. June is my moms birthday month. It is the time when I used to get summer holidays from school. It is usually sunny and warm. This june wasn’t particularly warm, but mostly June is a hot month. There are outings, there are family events, there are fun times. So much to do.
This june we had a family party, and we had my cousins wedding. Two lovely events, two fun filled events. We went for summer walks, we took the kids to the park, we went for long drives, we took the dogs to the beach.
I love june, and I love summer.
Writing Prompt #26
My sister jets off to Lansarote on Saturday morning, I wish I was her.
I’d love to be going on holiday somewhere abroad. I havent been abroad since 2013, the last time I went to america to visit my partner Jess was in 2013.
I’d love nothing more than to be going to a sun spot somewhere warm, sunny and where there is a pool.
I feel envious of my sister. My mom has promised to take me places while my sister is gone on her holidays. We’ll stay local, but hopefully the weather will cooperate and we’ll go to the beach and some other places where we can sight see, take pictures etc.
I’m excited to do that. I always love taking photos even though I cant actually see them.
I’m planning on making my own fun. I can have fun too even if I am not doing it from somewhere abroad.
