I worked diligently on the Berlin post – motivated by the desire to never get too far behind in my posts. I then feel this huge weight on my shoulders as new activities start to build upon previous ones and how can I remember what I wrote about and what I didn’t and oh oh oh…
So with the Canicule – that is scorching heat wave to you! I stayed one night in my apartment and had maybe 2 hours of sleep. OK maybe 3. I don’t do well in the heat. Never have. Always try to sleep with a window open or else I tend to have nightmares. So while I can survive walking around in 90 -103 degree weather, sleeping when the low is 75 and it doesn’t get there until 3 am and without air conditioning… doesn’t cut it. I used my handy app Hotel Tonight to find a cheap rate for the Movenpick Hotel and checked in Thursday. A great night’s sleep. But then the heat wave continued. So I dipped into my emergency reserve. Now it’s the Fourth and I will be here again tonight. Tomorrow, Sunday, it should return to the low 60’s and I should be fine at home.
All that to explain my crazy posts – if you get email notices, you may have wondered. I brought my tablet to the hotel to get some work done (Blog, French language exercises, and a coaching proposal! (Thanks JS!)). And finished the blog – happy to hit post.
Yet. The Berlin Blog post wasn’t showing up on the blog site…
Finally realized that the tablet had the date of May 28. Why? I have not messed with it. I thought those things were automatic. Well, it was the issue – Word Press believed the tablet and said let’s file this blog back in May. After figuring that out and fixing the date and time, I updated the blog with the photos of Potsdam and some curry wurst.
So that explains multiple postings. And now I am off to the grocery store to find the AhMeriCahn food provisions for our celebration.
