Yay! It’s official! Summer is here!! And as someone with zero tolerance for cold, I have to say that I LOVE summer.
And with perfect timing, our summer-time weather has arrived. We’ve got 90+ temperatures in store for the next week. We’re praying that the warm, dry weather is just what our garden needs.
Another sign that it’s officially summer: local sweet corn should be available at farmers’ markets and produce stands next week … and I cannot wait! Too bad our attempts to grow sweet corn in our garden were to no avail.
There’s not a whole lot on our weekend agenda … which at Chez Nana means that we’ll be as busy as all get out. But while I wait for the change in plans, I’ll probably be doing some sewing (pineapple blocks) and quilting (T#4’s quilt). With yard and garden work and swim meets 2 nights/week, I haven’t had as much time to do either one as I would have liked … so I plan to make up for it over the weekend.
It figures … now that I’m seeking medical attention for the cyst on my foot, it’s been bothering me quite a bit more than it had in the previous 6 weeks. Even so, it’s still not been bothersome enough to interfere with my normal activity.
There will be a Super Moon on the Sunday, the 23rd. We were blessed enough to have been at Hilton Head for the Super Moon in May, 2012 … I have to tell you that seeing the Super Moon rise on the ocean was a spectacular site (my photography skills didn’t do it justice).
Enjoy your first day of summer!
