So far, this summer has been unseasonably cold. And, windy. And, there is still snow in the high country which, for the past few years anyway, is unheard of for the middle of June. I'm not diggin' it.
I miss the warmer temperatures and the calm that an evening without wind brings to me when I sit on the porch. Hell, I haven't even had a Porch Night yet. And, forget a day on the lake; the wind makes it too challenging to launch the boat, let alone trailer it after we are done. It's a bummer.
At least the kids are too busy to care; the Man-Cub has been playing baseball and going to football and basketball camps and The Teenager is traipsing all over the place, enjoying her last summer with Not the Boyfriend and her other friends before she leaves for college. This week, she is attending a three-day country music festival in Neighboring City while we attend yet another baseball double-header.
In the wind.
Anyway, there is a light at the end of the tunnel: baseball ends July 2nd and we have already made tentative plans to pull the boat onto the lake for the weekend of the 4th. Then, I have Stampede to look forward to, which means more time with The Girls and all the cotton candy I can eat at the carnival.
I'm looking on the bright side, 'cuz that's how I roll.
Now, for some pictures of random summer crap....you're welcome.
