Summertime and the Living is Easy

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, today marks the longest day of the year and the official arrival of summer. Around our Ranch, summer seemed to arrive about six weeks earlier. Now after a few lovely springtime-like cooler days, we’re going to begin a warm up.

So today we think we’ll just kick back in the shade of a nice tree and maybe slurp a tasty lemonade this afternoon. What are your plans for the first ‘official’ of the solstice?

Live, love, bark! 🐾

    We’re still waiting for summer here. It might be here on paper but that’s about it! We get some warm days but as soon as that sun goes behind the trees, it starts to get chilly again!

    Well, our temps barely made it to 70 today and it has been raining. We need the rain, but it has meant a long day inside for us:( Mom says it is supposed to stop soon and we can celebrate the first day of summer with a long walk after dinner.

    I actually planned a street nap, but the street was so hot, I sat down and jumped right up with a hot butt. Mom said, “Toldja!” So rude… But not to worry. I took a sidewalk nap. The white cement was cooler than the black asphalt.

    We are going to enjoy some backyard grilling later today and I will be making deviled eggs. We hope the summer thunderstorms have moved out.

    We’ve been having some really hot days since last Saturday, with some high humidity to match. My brother said it was actually cooler at his house in The Keys in Tuesday than it was here in Taylors, SC! Oh well! It doesn’t seem to bother Ducky, but Shadow doesn’t like it any more than I do.

    Love the photo of Sam!

    That’s a great picture of Sam. Sounds like an ideal day. We too have had some very hot days already, but today is a little cooler. We’re hoping for some rain too, since we haven’t had any in about 3 weeks. Today….well, after cleaning some house, I will be ushering at our local minor league ballgame. Tippy is still keeping vigil to make sure the skunks stay put during the day.

    Here, the summer seems to have come early, too.
    My plans for today: drive to SA for a routine eye-doc appointment. So, no really lazy time before late afternoon.
    Emjoy your day,
