τήμερον αἱ νεφὲλαι ἐκάλυπτε τὸν οὐρανόν. εἰ οἰκῶ εν Βριστολῳ ἔβρεχε ἄν. τάχα καὶ τουτεῖ βρέξει.

σήμερον οὐκ ἰσχυρῶς πνέουσι οἱ ἄνεμοι ὥστε μόνον ὀλίγον κινήσαι τὰ ἐπὶ δένδρων φύλλα. τὰ δὲ φύλλα ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς οὐδαμῶς δονοῦνται. δονεῖ οὖν τὸ μὲν γάλα ἐν τῇ ἐμῇ καφῇ, τὰ δὲ φύλλα οὔ!

ἠγέρθην καὶ εἶδον διὰ θυρίδα – τὴν γῆν ἤν ξηρήν. προσεδόκουν βροχὴν αλλὰ τήμερον ου ἀφίκετο.

Δαυιδ ἠγερθή και εἴδεν πολλά. τουτεῖ δε καιπέρ εγερθείς εγώ, οὐκ εἴδον οὐδέν (δια τούτο ὅτι ἐν μέση νυκτί ἦν). αντί ιδόντος τι ἔξω, ανέγνων Ανάβασις. οἴμοι! δεῖ με λαβειν (λήψωμαι) βίον.

Νεφέλαι δὲ πάρεισιν ταύτῃ ἐν τῇ Διδακουπόλει, κρύπτουσαι τὸν ἥλιον. :D

ἠγέρθην καὶ εἶδον τὴν γῆν εἶναι ὑγρὴν – εβεβρεγτο. ὧδε ἔφερον σκιάδειον ἐπεὶ ἐλθὸν εκ οἰκίας. δυστυχῶς ὁ ἥλιος ἔλαμπε - μάτην ἔφερον σκιάδειον. :(

Any mistake was mine, not yours.

I was just quoting you and trying to get the phrase "ο της θερμασιας ακρος" down in my head. Here's my whole message translated:
"The height of the heat was 18C! That's cold, it seems to me. The vine also feels the cold air, it seems to me. The vine has the need of warmer air."

For the μετα των οδοντων phrase, I was having trouble understanding it. I meant to write:

"with teeth"
"Thank you, friend. Maybe you were thinking this way? Or please what were you thinking?"
[PICTURE of guy biting pencil]
"The man bites the pen (reed) with his teeth."

[picture of tooth holding brush]
"toothbrush with a tooth"

As long as I'm writing in English, let me just make a permanent statement for all times: I welcome any corrections to my Greek. I'm just a babbler and appreciate the help.

We've done a superb job on this forum in staying out of English, but it's good and necessary to clear things up once in awhile. But now, I should stop. As the Language-Hunters people say, this is "killing the language fairies" (meaning, when you resort to getting out of the target language, there's something magical that is killed).

σήμερον λάμπει μὲν ὁ ἥλιος, τὸν δὲ ἀέρα οὐ θερμαίνει. ψυχρὸς γάρ ἐστιν. θερμὴν καφὴν οὖν πἰνω ἵνα θερμαίνωμαι.

I am writing in Ancient Greek not because I know Greek well, but because I hope that it will improve my fluency in reading. I got the idea for this from Adrianus over on the Latin forum here at Textkit.

ὦ Σαῦλε ἀληθῶς εἶπες, ἄμπελος μάλιστα αἰσθανεται τὸν ψυχρόν ἀέρα. βότρυες οὐδέποτε ἀκμάζει αλλὰ καλὸς ὁ ἄμελος ἐστίν.

ἐπεὶ ὤκουν εν Ἰλλυρικῷ πολεῖ Ζαγρεβ-ι ποτέ ἤκουσα «Ὁ ἥλιος λάμπει μετά ὀδόντων». ἐπεὶ καπερ τοῦ ἡλίου λάμποντος σφοδρα ψυχρὸν ἤν, ὀ ἥλιος «εχει ὀδόντους»


That's what it means. It's a modern greek phrase (ηλιος με δόντια), ἥλιος μέν, σφοδρόν ψύχος δέ.
Πολλ' οίδ' ἀλώπηξ, ἐχῖνος δέ έν, μέγα.

ὁ τῆς θερμασίας ἄκρος ἦν τριάκοντα και ἕν σήμερον. ἡ γυνή μου νομίζει θερμός εἶναι ὁ ἀήρ , ἀλλά ἐγώ νομίζω ἡ εὐδία εἶναι. :)

εἰς αὔριον νομίζω ἡ θερμή ἡμέρα ἐσεσθαι ὅτι πορευσόμεθα πρός τὴν λίμνην τοῦ ἡμῶν γῆς. 8)

ἔσεσθαι θερμότερος λίαν ἤ τούτου τοῦ τόπου ὅτι ἐνταύθα ἐστίν πρός ὑψηλήν χώρην. ἐκεῖνη ἡ λίμνη οὐκ ἐστίν πρός ὑψηλήν χώρην. ἡ δε ἐστίν κάτω και θερμή λίαν. ἐκεί ὁ τῆς θερμασίας ἄκρος ἦν τριάκοντα και ΠΕΝΤΕ σήμερον!
