Summer2

"Summertime and the livin' is easy..."
Yet there are items on my agenda that can, in time, make life anything but easy. When you live here in the Northeast, summer can be a fleeting thing. Weather can play a cameo role. A couple of summers ago, June and July were loaded with more moisture than you would want. At the start of a summer, you have what seems endless miles ahead, plenty to do with plenty of time, but before you know it days are creeping shorter. Ol' Mr. Summer Sun is on the wane and many of those plans can come crashing down around you. Over the next few months, I have things that need to get done, and those that I want to get accomplished or at least I do for right now. Sometimes it's a challenge to distinguish between the two and keep myself and those around me happy and enjoying these all too brief warm days around here. So, I'll take some trips, see some friends, do some celebrating, get an important project or two or three done, buy a book, get some 'me time' in and hit a beach or two. Oh ya, almost forgot the beach...

  1. Summer here in Oklahoma lasts a long time. I have really gotten used to the heat but it is nice to go somewhere where it cools down nicely at night.

  5. It must be really hot in Maine if you just took this. Looks like she is reading email on her smart phone.

    My flight on 7/28 arrives in Boston at 4:30 PM. I'm picking up a car and will probably be at the hotel by 7:30.

  9. Summer is quite serious here: a lot of people at the beach resorts, almost desert city. Today the sun is hot, but we luckily got a steady breeze to cool a bit the heat.

  10. Thank you for this "gift." I'd guess that most of your time will be spent at the beach this summer if this is what you find in the sand. :-)

  13. The only thing that I expect from summer over here is a tad more sunlight, and then I'll be happy... :)
    God bless you!
