It seemed like Summer started and never let up until just recently.
We might have had Spring for a couple of days, then it was hot every day .. a loong summer!
I would lie in bed at night with the a/c going and dream about cool fall days and leaves falling.
Winter nights walking home from somewhere and smelling the wood smoke.
Well, here it is !
I don't want to go out at night, it is too cold, I whine.
I hate going out in the day time, it is too cold I whine.
The dog looks at me with that sad look, I grumble as I get my coat and trudge along, wrapped in scarves and boots and wool and trying to remember where I put my gloves.
But then we get to the park and stand in the sunshine and Pup is busy sniffing everything and I throw some bread down for the birds and it is not so bad after all !
No mosquitoes ! that counts for something .
I am not worrying so much about sunburn, that is good.
I have a nice warm coat and some beautiful scarves, I should be happy with that .
But then night comes along and it is dark and cold out.
Pup and my husband and I are warm and cozy inside, how can I venture out to a restaurant or concert ?
I just want to snuggle in with them ! Have I become a hermit ?
Am I becoming one of those Summer creatures who lives for warm sunshine ?
I think they are also called Argentine .. when there is a bit of sunshine, you can see them sitting at the cafe, all pointed in the direction of the sun, faces up to the warmth .. soaking it in .. that's it, that is what has happened!
I am becoming Argentine!
See you at the cafe !
