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.
~Watch your step! Cacti, tumbleweeds, and an occasional armadillo might be ahead.
