Spring in July
Look! The windows are open! Finally!
June was the hottest on record here. Not just hot... hot and humid and muggy and sticky. All month, we had the windows closed and the a/c running. I was hiding in the house to avoid the hot, sticky misery outside. Now that July is here, we are having Spring weather... finally! It's in the 70s and low 80s instead of the 90s, and the air is crisp and clean, not humid and sticky. The windows are open. Outdoor activities are fun again. (More like, even possible again!)
I have been able to go outside and do a little gardening. I'm in the process of filling up the wooden bench with pots of flowers. Finally, it's nice to sit outside after dinner and have a drink, or sit in the swing and read a book. It was just too hot to do this in June. I love Spring, whenever it arrives.
I was thrilled when I found this bench at Home Goods. It was just what I had been looking for. I hauled it into the back of my Blazer and off I went! My Blazer is twelve years old and has over 100,000 miles on it, but this is one reason I'm not willing to give it up. It's not pretty, but it sure is practical!
