With a chilly voice.
Daylight turns off her light
Earlier, as each evening fades
Calendar creeps forward to the
Trying to enjoy each summer day while it lasts!)
Of sunny days
Dissolve as the dark clouds linger.
Each day summer’s warmth is cut short
This summer we have not seen many sunny warm days.
The weather has been usually cool and even rainy.
Our fruit and vegetables have been aching for sunshine in order to ripen.
Each day I check the Weather App and smile as it tells me the high will be 80-85 and then as the day progresses my smile fades as the sun stays hidden and the temp doesn’t rise as predicted.
I keep hoping though that one of these days I will see summer arise again!
Family and friends
Gathering in the town square
Grand-daughter, her boyfriend and I enjoyed a fun night of music in the park and a Classic Car Show. Grand-daughter brought her ‘85 RX-7 to show off 🙂 and we got to listen to our favorite country music singer too. I love Summer!!

Enjoying summer in
Warmth of the sunshine
Seeps through ancient tree’s canopy
Ministering to my soul
(Visited the college today to get my books for the Fall semester and decided to take a walk around campus since it was such a nice day. Saw these lavender chairs and had to stop to rest in them.😊 )
The sun envelopes
Bees, birds and squirrels visit
Lazy summer day
Breeze carries children’s laughter
And sounds of the ice cream truck
A delight to the eyes
Bright and bold, soft and fragile
The flowers of summer
Sunny Sunday morn
Purple cotton candy drips
Giggling like a child
I watch a balloon artist
Create happiness with air
This morning I spontaneously decided to be a kid again as I read a post saying our local ice cream shop was giving away ice cream sandwiches to celebrate “National Ice Cream Day”.
And not just any ice cream sandwiches! These were specially created from our local donut shop! A fresh donut ice cream sandwich! Wow! Just the pick me up I needed to start the day I thought!
So instead of lounging on my comfy couch this morning, I got up, and went out to greet the day and was pleasantly rewarded!
I love summer, ice cream, donuts and balloons! And it was nice to be a kid again! 😊
