Even though summer has been classified as my absolute favorite, I can't help but cringe at the thought of how crazy humid and hot it's going to become. From the moment I switch on the TV in the morning and hear the meteorologists saying, "Well, look here. It's a beautiful 78 degrees right now at 7:15 AM, but we're going to see those clouds burn off by noontime," I'm reminded of this desert I live in. Why do they have to describe it as everything burning up?

Just say it'll slowly warm up...more...and more...and more. Ah, well. I'll either put my face in the bushes or set up shop under a big palm tree and take advantage of the shade successfully blocking 15% of the heat. Like this:
A friend of mine from college once described to me that satisfying feeling of getting into the warm car immediately after walking out of an air-conditioned place that's overly cold. But once, she got too comfortable in her lizard-like contentment and fell asleep in the smoldering car for about half an hour. Not a very comfortable awakening! Can you already guess that she always has amusing stories to tell?

Still...I can't wait for tomorrow, aka the official start of summer. :)

Have a great day! Be cool, yo. (THAT was not cool).

one man's trash is another man's treasure. It is still coolish here. I don't know what hot is anymore unless I get into the bath. I still have a winter duvet in bed. I need sun and heat. Honestly, I wish I had your weather anyday!

I can't believe it isn't officially summer yet! We have been roasting down here in Florida. 90 soggy, humid degrees today.

Ahh I gochya girl! I'm not so good in humidity but I think that's just because our car has no air:) love the palm pics! Palms are my favorite!:)

Ahh, Naomi! You're making me think I'm going to have to pack a parka when I get to London. Hope it warms up for you soon, lady!

Jenni: Hmm, I think I know how you feel! I think the humidity was the hardest thing for me to get used to when we moved to San Antonio. Before I was in Abilene (hot, but not crazy, and definitely not humid), and Lubbock (DRY). I really like Florida, but when I was visiting a friend there in Gainsville (the one who likes her car toasty, actually), it was just so muggy.

Care: I would DIE without air in my car here! Die. And thank you for the sweet compliments. Palms are my favorite too!
