UPDATE: June 10, 2010 .... noontime  51 degrees(f) and Raining

Dear readers and followers:
Last night after I got home and had dinner I decided to bake some goodies to take to my office so I can share them with my friends and clients.

Cinnamon Rolls made with lots of brown sugar, cinnamon, and raisins.
After they cooled somewhat I frosted them.....   very YUMMY !!!!!

Update:  Thursday afternoon, June 17, 2021.

Only 4 days until the Summer Solstice and the longest (very long) day
of the year here where I live.

With the long sunlight hours the weather and the temperatures are getting
markedly warmer every day.  Today got up to 66 deg (f) partly cloudy.
Tonight it is supposed to go down to 48 deg (f)

Sunrise this morning was at 2:59AM
Sunset tonight will be at 12:29AM (just after midnight)

That is about  21½ hours of the Sun above the horizon and then
the night time night skies will be nothing more than 2½ hours of twilight or dusk... 
very little in the way of darkness and no display of the stars in the sky.

Here is a picture I took from my back yard about an hour after midnight last night.
           

The flowers are blooming, my veggie garden is growing, and I am doing whatever
hiking I can do this summer while I can enjoy the long and warmer days.

HUGS and best wishes to all of my readers, followers and friends here on the Forums.

Even with the cloudy sky it was getting light at 3.45 am (TMI comfort break) and the birds started to sing as I fell asleep again at 4 am. We missed the thunder storms and its turned fresher/cooler but rain is on its way.

Update:  Tuesday evening, 7:30PM, June 22, 2021

It was a pleasant day today... it got fairly warm, 66 deg (f) earlier this afternoon
and right now it is a comfortable 58 deg (f) ...  going down to 48 deg (f) later
around 2:30AM just around SunRise in the morning.....much better that the extreme high
temperatures I am reading about in some of the lower 48 states.

I wanted a simple and cool dinner so I made a nice fresh salad ....
     

It will be sunny until around midnight (Sunset) .. I am thinking of taking an evening walk...
...perhaps a couple miles into town and back home. 

When walking by myself in the evening times I always bring my handgun (.357 Magnum) for
personal protection from bears and other predators that I may stumble into.
HUGS,
Danielle

UPDATE:   Saturday morning, June 26, 2021  10:50AM
Dear readers, friends, and followers:
I trust that you are doing OK with the high heat temperatures where you live.....  I would not think that for some of you and where you be may located it would be a pleasant experience to be outside in the sun today.

My temperature here in Alaska very early this morning was 53 degrees (f) and at this morning at 10:30AM it is a very pleasant 62 degrees, perhaps going up to 66 degrees (f) in the late afternoon.   Sunset is at midnight so there will be plenty of sunny daylight here to enjoy and perhaps I will go on a late afternoon or early evening hike with my Tooth-Fairy sweetie.

Have a great day today..... stay cool !!!!

HUGS 
Danielle

Your plants and flag are looking good. We have a telescopic flag pole that goes to 25'. I love flying the stars and stripes.

Very hot and humid here today. It's currently 88 out.

Sunday, July 4th, 2021   

Nice warm day.... 70 degrees(f)  clear and sunny with a few clouds.
Smokey air because of some forest fires up north.

I have my gym-gals group over to my home for dinner that I made...
......T-Bone Steaks on the outside grill.... medium rare.
Tomato and Cucumber Salad

The Sun does not set until just before midnight so fireworks, if we have them will be very late....   
Sunrise will be at 3:15AM

HUGS,
Danielle

Update:  Wednesday, 2:45PM

A cool day today....  in the mid-40's (f) this morning.  Today was mostly in the mid-50's and it got to 60 deg(f) for a few hours this afternoon.   Tonight it's going to go back down in the 40's again.
Cloudy and partly sunny with some possible rain.

I went on a late evening hike with my Tooth-Fairy Sweetie...  we hiked until midnight when the Sun finally set below the horizon.  Then for a few hours it was twilight and dusk as the moon shined brightly just above the horizon, never getting dark enough to see any Stars in the sky.

          https://www.susans.org/forums/index.php/topic,257149.msg2427236.html#msg2427236

I trust that all of my friends here on the forums are dealing OK with the super hot weather in some areas, and all the rain and storms in other locations.
Stay safe, stay healthy,

HUGS and as always, best wishes,
Danielle

The weather in the Southeast is surprisingly mild.  We have had a little rain from tropical depressions, but nothing violent or damaging in my state.  Highs in the mid 80's and lows in the very low 70's (like 70-72 for the next 10 days).  Very nice weather. 

I know that mid 80's is too warm for you (Danielle), but we are adapted to it and quite comfortable.  Now, 109 would be dangerously hot.  But, the mid eighties?  My wife sets her car's automatic thermostat ton 81 (she is ALWAYS complaining about being cold...probably her thyroid).  Anyway, our weather has been quite nice.

Weather report from Blighty ! Its showers and temps are highs of 20C , from next Wed its supposed to be dry with mid 20C. Scandal rags are saying we are going to have a heat wave with 30+c for the end of July but the local weather man said its too far ahead to predict that. Beginning of August would be nice as of camping at a VW show .

UPDATE:  Thursday, July 09,     4:30PM  Alaska Time
Warm day today...
... it is 64 deg(f) right now ....
....later tonight it will get colder down around 40 deg(f) 

I came home from my office tonight a little earlier than I usually do.
I had a busy day at work and I am tired....

I invited my Sweetie Tooth-Fairy to have dinner with me tonight and then we are
going for a nice walk into town (2 miles each way) and we will just take our time
and enjoy talking and being together...

I made a large Big Salad with my famous homemade dressing.
Very refreshing on a day like today.

I trust that all my friends and followers are doing well.

HUGS,
Danielle

Tuesday, July 13, 2021    12:15pm Alaska Time

Just had lunch at the next door coffee shop,
I am back at my office to enjoy some coffee from the coffee shop and
just a few of the cookies I baked at home last night.

Temperature was chilly and cold 38 deg(f) at 6:00am this morning, will be going up slowly into the mid-60's today...
... sunny with a cloud or two... or three.

Picture to follow soon.


HUGS,
Danielle
