As of tomorrow there are ninety days remaining until Labor Day, the unofficial end of the worst season, summer. I hate summer. I unfairly hate people simply named Summer. I loathe being hot, can’t stand relying on an A/C for comfort and while we do have Independence Day, the season is seriously lacking in the strings of holidays other seasons boast. I also live where it’s often too hot. Today it was 102 degrees. Barf. I don’t want it to be summer, but I also don’t like to be a glass half empty sad sack. So let’s celebrate this blistery time and search for something each day the season is with us to enjoy.
This was near the hottest time of the day. Today was a sweaty mess, but I’m starting early with a bonus thing to love, as the sun is down and the outdoor oven is turned off. Our bonus day is; Cooler Nights. It may still be 83 degrees outdoors, but it feels like heaven after today. I’m sitting on the porch right now, as the air is still thick inside. As bad as the heat gets the reward of a cool night feels amazing. They’re like a neatly wrapped present, all crispy folded and a simple bow.
Hip hip hurray for cool nights. You’re fabulous. Here’s to ninety more times of the sun setting on the heat!
