The deep heat that we’ve been dreading is on its way. Summer is upon us. While the flowerbeds are holding up, the grass is growing thin and slower. The back porch, which is a sanctuary in spring and fall, has become an oven in the evening sun.
While I did eat lunch outside today with a couple co-workers, that was the last foray outside for a while. The combination of scorching sun and roaster-like heat make it hard to enjoy much time anywhere but in the cool of my office, car or home.
I think I’ll just pick up a book and read until October.
