Happy Summer!


My my my, this year is certainly full steam ahead! Not only is it past the middle of June, but it's the first day of Summer. How in the world did this happen already?!

If Summer weather was like it has been so far this morning all the time throught the season, I would never complain a peep about Summer, ever! What a stunning morning! Last time I checked it was 68* with very little humidity. The sun is shining and breezes are steady. It's an all windows and doors open kind of day which is a thankful relief after the yucky week we just had once Monday passed.

Today is also the Hubbs' birthday. Yep, he's a Summer Solstice baby! 


Unfortunately, instead of being off from work today as planned, he had to work at his full time job. And he has to work here at TPH when he gets home. And I'm struggling with a migraine. Triple sigh!

At least we had a nice night last evening in town, walking along the main street and harbor. A bit warm as there wasn't a breeze to be had, but still a pretty evening.

Once the sun was down further, the clouds blocked it out completely.

Happy Saturday, happy Summer and have an awesome weekend!

Monday Musings - The Perfect End to a Perfect Day!





Stunning, ain't it?! 

Today was the kind of day that made me wish this weather would last forever! Little to no humidity, temps in the upper 70s, consistent onshore breezes coming in the widows & screen doors all day long and sunny. Warm but not hot. Perfectly pleasant! 

I happened to be up early (because I haven't been sleeping well the past few days) and so I've been able to enjoy today's weather from sun up to sundown! I also had a very productive day as a result of the weather and for that I'm thankful. In fact, at about 3pm when I was just about to run out of steam and could feel a migraine coming on, I sat on the patio for a few moments to rest and the breezes lulled me right to sleep! I really didn't want to come inside, but that pesky migraine wasn't taking no for an answer so I had to.

Unfortunately, today was the 'calm before the storm' as Summer-like heat and humidity will arrive overnight. I guess that's only appropriate/inevitable what with the Summer Solstice this coming Saturday! And today it *smelled* like Summer outdoors. 

Hope your Monday was awesome!

Much sunshine & glare coming up the hill in the morning!
