It’s officially summer


Yep, it’s hot here in Texas. It was awhile in coming, but our lovely little weathermen are focasting a run for 100! As hot as it seems to be in Texas, we don’t normally see 100s in May. A good thing, too, since July and August have plenty of those tar-bubbling, frying-egg-on-concrete, sweat-pouring days.

Nonetheless, today is my kids last day of school and we’re headed to the water park.

If there is one thing we Texans know how to do, it’s play in the water.

This past Memorial Day week-end was boat a-mania. Of course, there is always more than one boat on Texas lakes. It looks more like a jammed freeway on most lakes around holiday time. Nonetheless, for any of you stuck in the colder climes, I thought you might appreciate that Texas is already toasting.

I know some of you are still stuck inside — WORKING! And I’ll be hard back at it tomorrow. But since my kids are free from school, and I’m playing hooky for the day, I’ll enjoy the sun and wind (and heat) for all of you who can’t.

Happy summer! Whenever yours starts.

Don’t forget to drop back by the porch. The tea is chilled and I have a really large fan to keep us cool.

  1. We’re looking forward to our official beginning of summer vacation, too, but we have several snow days to make up…so the year doesn’t end for another week!

    Hope you had fun at the water park!!

  2. Oh yes! LOL about ‘summer is here’. We are making daily (frantic) trips down to the pond to get all the enjoyment we can before it dries up.

    I have a bad feeling that the summer is going to be as insanely hot and dry as the spring was unnaturally long and wet.

  3. Thanks to all who dropped by the porch. Suck down those sweet teas, and be sure to stay in the direct line of the fan, ladies. ‘Cause here in Texas it’s called sweatin’ for a reason.
