It's a good thing I live in Texas, because I love the Summer heat. OK, let me clarify that. I love summer heat the modern way. I love Summer heat when I have an air-conditioned home with ceiling fans to escape to, a pool in the backyard and an air-conditioned vehicle to drive. How those poor pioneer women survived in their long sleeved-dresses and no relief from the heat I don't know.
So what's to love? Well, the grass is a gorgeous shade of green under the shade of the willow tree, the garden is growing despite being occasionally trampled by little doggy feet and that Wal-Mart pool was the best money ever spent by the grandparents. Now that we've had several days of triple digit weather I love floating around in the cool water with the kids (the water was too icy before and I'm not a fan of my lips turning blue).
Grab yourself a big ol' glass of sweet tea from the pitcher in the fridge and come on out and float with me, won't you? We can talk and laugh and watch the kids play until the cows come home (whenever that is). Be sure and put on your hat and some sunscreen! Maybe I'll even make us an icebox pie.
