I had problems to fall asleep last night, it was too hot. This morning, I slept longer than usual, I probably needed that extra hour of sleep. 

In the early afternoon, Amélie had a group concert of Viola, we all went there together. It was warm in the chapel ... it must have been even warmer for the children.

I hope it cools off soon, because here in my attic it's actually too hot to sit and paint, and I want to paint. I'm working on some images on paper and have already given a first layer this morning. I hope to give it more layers soon.

Yesterday evening we went to Jazz Zottegem. After Philip Catherine there was a nice brass act of three that walked around and played recognisable contemporary tunes. We didn't stay long, but long enough to feel like we'd been out for a while, just being out and amongst people.

This morning it is rainy. It has completely cooled down and I love it.

I still feel a bit tired. I think it's just all a bit much with the recent events. It will get better soon. On Wednesday my mother-in-law's funeral will take place. That is going to be a hard day. Soon, I will have 2 months off. It is good that more free time is coming up. Just to clear my head and then make fresh plans again.
