and if you remember that song then I'm not telling how "young" you really are. tee hee
The new puppy, the halfway mark of summer vacation, the pumpkins setting blossoms, the hummingbirds drinking more sugar water faster than I clean the feeders and refill.....yep it's July here in 'Burque. I love mid summer, the way it feels, tastes, smells, sounds.............but...does it always have to go by so quickly? The grands and I still have so many adventures to take, so many craft projects to do and so much piddle and poo to clean. Our Ms. Ellle is such a giver. Nothing like the Saint Bernard gifts but a giver none the less.
I must say that my favorite season (Indian Summer) is about 12 weeks from now but this time of year comes in a close second.
It is such a soft and gentle time....too hot to stay out and play all afternoon...naps under a fan....fresh lemonade on the porch...cold food dinners....sticky fingers from popsicles...rolling in the grass to get wet with dew....up early to get chores done and a big breakfast cuz we won't eat until supper...kids, cards and laughter....wet footprints on the cool tile floor play area.....slow down of time...and then reality sets in and all too soon we're off to school, lessons, the world.
Please summer stay slow for just a little while longer....please. This ole broad needs to savor these moments.
