This Week...Oh Yes, Summer is Here

With a few exceptions, most of the U.S. knows that summer is here. Currently (Friday at 2 PM) it’s 91 degrees here in Houston with a feels like temperature of 106!

 

 

Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability. Sam Keen

Besides our body clocks waking us up early, the already high temperatures are just the push Larry and I need to get our act in gear and head out to walk before it gets any hotter. 

 

 

In early June the world of leaf and blade and flowers explode, and every sunset is different.   John Steinbeck

When I think of summer, I recall my mother’s homemade iced tea, lots of trips to the beach, and ice cream cones. I could never keep my one scoop of chocolate on the cone though so switched to getting mine in a cup. 

 

 

Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary, and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains. Diane Ackerman



It’s been exciting to see parents dropping off their children for summer camp activities out at Kickerillo. The activities are in the trees so there’s shade and sometimes a nice breeze

 

 

We might think we are nurturing our garden, but of course, it’s our garden that is really nurturing us.  Jenny Uglow

 

Enjoy the freedom that comes with our summer months...no shoes, a minimum of clothing, no one complaining if you run through the sprinklers, and guilt-free kicking back and doing nothing. 

 



Have fun in the sun and stay hydrated!!

Nina Hollander, Broker I too remember trips to our library and Vacation Bible School!!!  You may have inspired me to make some homemade ice cream this week. 

Brian England I'm happy just to see kids outside instead of their noses buried in their devices.

Kat Palmiotti you're going to have higher temps than we are!!!  Besides fishing, I can remember my grandmother and grandfather taking us crabbing down at the bay!  And I loved that we could stay outside longer to play. 

Michael Jacobs every time I try a cone-even to this day- I end up with ice cream everywhere!!!

Rocky Dickerson I always think of places up north as being cooler but I suppose not. I'm used to the humidity having lived here and South Florida. Not used to how dry it gets where you are. 

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD oh the temps in Alaska sound wonderful!!!  Enjoy your trip. I'm planning on staying inside in the AC as much as I can.

Will Hamm I know that the west could use some showers so hope that you get them. 

Roy Kelley that is wonderful!!!  We had a nice breeze on our walk today. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel That sounds great to me!!!  It's the kind of weather where you can sit outside for more than a few minutes.

Hi Kathy Streib - I remember way back when my husband worked nights and every Friday we would go to one of SoCal's beaches to soak up the sun with the little ones.  My little one is now 44 tomorrow!  YIKES!

Hello Kathy.  These quick blurbs can not help but reach out to a sense all of us have felt or enjoyed somewhere, sometime.  To this day I miss the smell of the early morning on the Souther California beaches.  Mark

Morning Kathy

The heat I can take, it's the humidity that drains me.

Hi Kathy:

There are certainly plenty of people suffering with the record-breaking temperatures but not us...thankfully.  It's been 70 or slightly less every day this week and I'm not complaining.
