Summertime and the living is....

well not quite easy, because I hate hot weather. But there have been some pleasures here and there - watching my snapdragons come up in the garden. My Mom always grew them when I was growing up - so they remind me of those carefree days when summers were filled with walks and bike rides - going to the library - playing hide and seek... Another pleasure - looking out my window the other day and seeing a big bluejay trying to fit himself into the small bowl of water I keep on the railing for the birds to drink from. He would stand there - cooling his legs and feet - and then try to get his wings a little wet. After a few times, I guess he was refreshed and flew off.

I feel for and with you Linda as I too hate hot weather. We are having a cool summer here and I am so thankful for that. I just hope that August does not turn hot now.

I loved reading about your memories of snapdragons and childhood summers.
