I'm loving summer. Yes, it was 100 degrees here yesterday and it hasn't rained in two forevers, but I love summer. It's such a lazy time - at least it is around here. I can waste an entire day and not feel guilty about it. Other times I feel an obsessive compulsion to be "productive" and get "something" done.
Maybe I'll finally paint the bedroom and the kitchen this summer. (I've been saying that for two years; don't hold your breath.)
Summer is when I take long, lingering trips to the library or through an antique mall. Barnes and Noble! Summer is when I hit the garage sales and estate sales on Fridays and Saturdays! In the summer I have time to actually cook, but don't usually feel like it because I'd rather be lazy.
Summer at SIGIS is when the crepe myrtles bloom:
It's when the hostas are up and thriving in the shade where it's still at least 98 degrees...
It's where the geraniums are loving the heat:
...and the impatiens need a little more water than usual...
The dog is oblivious to the heat; he just wants someone to throw the tennis ball:
He would chase the ball until he drops. He has to be told to stop and go inside.
Summer is when the coneflowers bloom:
and an inviting place to sit beckons:
Summer is when you have fresh blueberries ready for cobbler:
And at the end of the day, it's time for a good book and a cold beer on the deck:
I hope you're enjoying your summer as much as I'm enjoying mine!
Happy Flag Day!
