Normally, August’s heat results in lawn that looks parched. Mowing slows down to once every two weeks. This summer, we had a period of dry heat in late June. August has determined to make up for that and though it’s been hot, that heat has been accompanied by otherworldly humidity and frequent drenching rainstorms. The grass isn’t parched; it’s thick and damp. The mower is earning its keep this August.
I am weary of waking up each day to see a new alert about Donald Trump’s screw-ups. I like to read (I just finished As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust by Alan Bradley), garden, cook, and talk.
I love….thinking about spring, daydreaming while I swim, making lists, fresh mango slices, white sneakers, cheerful pennants, spring cardigans, #somelovely on Instagram, Spring Break plans, anticipating my morning coffee, Spring bulbs, bunnies, cheerful stories, pinning my hair in a bun, bright colors, stripes, pretty hair pins, tulips, and the way a workout makes me feel.
