“You know what’s probably a good thing to hang on your porch in the summertime, to keep mosquitoes away from you and your guests? Just a big bag of blood.” Jack Handey
We’ve had some unusually hot and muggy days.
I take two showers a day.
My apartment stays hot at night.
The heat and the scratching of bug bites makes it difficult to sleep.
My thick hair is akin to wearing a big fur Russian hat.
I can’t drink enough water to replenish all that I’m losing.
I love summer.
I love the sun on my face.
I love the trees fully clothed in green leaves.
I love the smell of flowers in bloom.
I love taking walks through parks and along the river.
Where I live, summer is too short and it’s passing quickly – too fast for my liking.
Nights are cooler now and the days are getting shorter.
Before too long I will be trapped in the deep-freeze of ice and snow
and longing for the hot days of summer.
What’s your favourite season?
