Summer song

We’ve not had much of a summer. The season has so far given us plenty of rainy and unseasonably chilly days. The weather had been so unpredictable that stepping out of our house in our shorts and tees is not always a given that it would be comfortable. Sometimes we’d have to bring along a light sweater. Even in the middle of July.

After weeks of bipolar weather, we finally had a quintessential summer weekend. It seemed like it took forever to get here but it didn’t take us long to jump in and take advantage of it with sushi, a summer blockbuster - Harry Potter’s last movie of the series, the beach, blueberry pancakes, ice cream, Chinese acrobats performing at an outdoor venue, and the Children’s museum. There was even an impromptu romp in the water fountain. Not me – Little Miss.

But oh how I wished it was me instead.







In summer, the song sings itself.  ~ William Carlos Williams
