Savoring Summer

Heat, ma'am! it was so dreadful here, that I found there was nothing left for it but to take off my flesh and sit in my bones.
-- Sydney Smith

What dreadful hot weather we have! It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance.
-- Jane Austen

The heat has been intense.
Heat indexes of over 100 for a solid week.

The beautiful hydrangeas are a thing of the past. The heat is too overwhelming.

Even so,

I still love summer.


Ice cream

Being lazy

Cute toes

Cold, juicy watermelon


Gorgeous sunsets


Fun in the sun

It is slipping away.

I am not ready.

Savor the GIFT of each moment

we've been given.

What gifts of


are you savoring today?
