Last tuesday it rained for the first time since 3 months...
That is always a very happy moment after such a long time.
But this time it wasn't all joy...
It started to rain in the evening
and in no time the weather turned really bad into
a very heavy thunderstorm with loud thunders
and threatening lightning flashes!
I love to watch this kind of weather, so I was sitting in the catrun
under the roof, dry and safe...
Than there was one loud BANG!!!...
that left us out of electricity (till the next morning)
But on top of it Zeus (the Greek God of thunder) was
throwing hailstones as big as table tennis balls!!
The cats were screeming that I had to go into the house,
the dogs were also very afraid...
Well... our God Zeus damaged the trees really really horrible :-(
The hugh fig tree behind my house suffered the most...

Do you see the two tortoises on the photo above?
This one is taken from the other side of the garden...
And the lemon tree lost a lot of her leaves...
(on the leftside from the doghouse)
And the olive trees lost almost all of the olives... :-(
(the old dogbed is used as a shelter by the tortoises)
The next day I found out that my internet router was broken too.
Later I heard that the lightning had struck something
in our neighbourhood with that big bang...
Till yesterday I had no internet, but as you can see
I have installed a new modem and it works fine again.
I still do have another problem though...
Wednesday when I was cleaning up all the mess
I have hurt my low back real bad...
And and the moment I have to deal with a
It is the third time for me that I have this back problem,
so I am aware of the risks if I don't take it easy for a while...
I have medication for the pain (which goes till the knee in my left leg),
but I still can't sit, walk or stand longer than a few minutes.
So I have to change place all the time, but that's okay.
It's just that because of the pain
I don't feel like doing anything at the moment!!
It should be better in about 6 weeks... :-(
I still have some more logs to write
because one of my cats had her birthday and
I received a very lovely gift from Geneviève...
So I will be back soon!
