i was inspired by soulemama’s blog this week to take a shot at savoring summer. it has been hot hot hot here and i do not handle that kind of heat well so i have been hiding inside near the window air conditioner. before this heat wave it has been mostly cool or rainy here so summer is a bit of a missing person.
but she makes it look so…nice (as she does with everything) and so i wanted to at least try. yesterday afternoon we all put on our homemade bugspray (i am so proud of it) and hit the back yard. yes, i think going out to the backyard was savoring summer. i filled the kiddie pool with about one inch of water, added cups and balls and boats, grabbed my knitting, and settled in to savor summer.
you know what? it was nice. truly nice. and today is a better day.
