Is It Summer Yet?

Yesterday was a perfectly lovely day. The temperature was in the low 50's, the sun was shining, birds were singing...that reminds me, I should probably refill the bird feeders before the little bastards my fine-feathered friends peck my eyeballs out in a starvation frenzy abandon my feeders for someone eles's...and a nice breeze was blowing; spring was definitely in the air and I came thisclose to grabbing my garden trowel and cleaning out my flowerbeds.

Unfortunately, the weather is supposed to take a turn for the worse before the weekend so, it is best that  I am too lazy to garden refrained from exposing the delicate tulip, crocus and daffodil shoots to the elements too early.

In addition to having gardening fever, I am also jonesing to be on the water, to show off my latest OPIcure (The One That Got Away, from the new Katy Perry collection) while wearing cute flip-flops, to redecorate the front porch for a new season of Porch Nights, to watch the Cub play baseball, to listen to the crickets at night while sipping a glass of really good wine, to lay in the sun in a new bikini lovely, age-appropriate one-piece bathing suit and to wake up to the sounds of cooing, courtesy of our resident Mourning Doves who always get louder with the coming of the summer.

Which reminds me that I need to buy birdseed.

And, an age-appropriate one-piece bathing suit.

Summer, where are youuuuu??
