Last year in Eureka, summer practically passed us by. I think I wore shorts twice. Which is just the way Mr. F and I like it. But this year in Marin, we’ve seen our fair share of warm days. And while the warmth definitely wears on me, the knowledge that it is short lived helps me enjoy its stay just a little.
Now don’t get me wrong– I’ll complain about the heat! But I’ll take the blue skies and sparkles on the water in exchange for the extra warmth. It helps soothe my soul to know that this time is fleeting, that soon the blue skies will change back to gray, the color in the leaves will begin to shift, the air will again be crisp and cool. Summer, you may come and I’ll bask in your short-lived presence because it reminds me this season will depart soon enough.
