[ what's new in the 'hood ]

SO IT'S November and just like last year, the weather has shifted as though someone has flicked a switch. And so what's new around here? Well... with temps peaking at only 32C (90F), it means getting outside!

sitting on a patio to enjoy a drink...


and taking a walk to see what's new... the twisty building is coming along...


and a new mosque is being built...


It's been a very long 6 months of extreme heat and being cooped up in A/C and it feels great to finally get outside to exercise and get some air. I love winter in Dubai.

I'm glad you are able to get outside now. It must get fusterating to be cooped up all the time. That twisty building looks really cool!

Finally nice temperatures...I hope you lounge in that pool as much as possible also? Looks like a gorgeous day! Enjoy!

Looks like a great place to enjoy a drink. Glad the weather has cooled a bit for you. Funny how that is still so hot - it's that hot MI weather that I don't really love. I'm a mid seventies kind of girl. So interesting to see the architecture.

I don't think I could do it Lisa...even the "cool" is too hot for me! We had our first snowfall...melted away by lunch. Lots of chilly morning...frosty.
I've been a terrible blogger. Time to get back on track!

Hi Lisa,
What a great change after all of that extreme heat. Sitting outside has to feel like such a treat!!
I remember when we lived in Texas and I would be so desperate to wear a sweater in the winter - and it didn't end up happening all that often!
That twisty building is really cool : ) xo Ashlyn

Wow, look at that lovely weather- how nice! I am here at the wood burning stove snuggled up warm for the night- yes you guessed it's Ireland after all! The clocks went back last weekend so it is darker earlier now around 5:00pm and is a bit depressing really. Hope your enjoying the lovely sunshine and glad you can get out now. I'm jealous

All things nice...
