We have enjoyed many an overcast & rainy morning/afternoon. Just a couple of evenings ago we enjoyed an invigorating rain run as we pattered through drizzling streets. When the sun comes out from hiding, it becomes sweltering & blazing.
One of my highlights in June was working on The Tan Times. It all began almost 30 years ago with a newsletter which we put together to keep in touch. In a fit of housekeeping a few months ago in early April, Houseproud Mom discovered all the back issues (the newsletter had long been discontinued).
It is unusual for me to be up at 6pm and sitting at my writing space (I have taken over a portion of my dining table & set up shop there). If I am up at this time of day, it is typically for a run. But I was met with a dramatic thunderstorm upon waking and so I find myself here; the Southwest Monsoons have been enthusiastically watering our little island with thundershowers these past few days.
Dropped my phone on the pavement – cracked my screen. Stubbed my toe on the sofa leg – dislocated it (my toe, unfortunately, not the sofa). Flipped a spoon out of the sink while washing it – bruised my ankle.
I used to chase shaded paths on my runs, a respite from the strong Singaporean sun & humid heat. Nowadays, I seek out the least pedastrianed paths. I avoid the Gardens next door when it used to be one of my go-to routes, as well as many other familiar curcuits as they are plied by fellow runners, walkers & cyclists.
Yesterday, Singapore announced that we are extending our Circuit Breaker (ie. Lockdown) period by an additional month. Our initial month-long Circuit Breaker was meant to end on May 4. Now, it will run till June 1.
