Pining for Summer (Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday)

I know I don’t exactly live in the Arctic or anything, but I’ve been really cold recently.  It’s cold in my office at work, it’s cold in my house (both are very poorly insulated with spotty heating), and I still haven’t gotten used to the fact that humidity makes it feel a lot colder than I feel like it should be.  It makes me long for days like these:

Dragonfly walk

Dragonfly walk.  Are those three little boys with the nets not ridiculously adorable?!

Ah, summer.  It can’t get here fast enough!  I don’t care if it’s close to 100 degrees and super humid and I have to tuck my pants into my socks and wear long-sleeved shirts to keep the grass and the ticks off my skin.  I just want to feel warm again.  Plus, bugs!  I miss bugs…

  1. I couldn’t agree with you more! Living in northern NY like we do, cold and snow is the norm. This winter, though, has been brutally cold – day after day of 0 to ten above with wind chills of -25 or more. It started snowing in the early morning hours today and we already have over a foot. One good thing, it tends to be warmer when it snows. At this point, I’ll take the snow over the cold! My daughter lives in Apex, NC and I’ve already let her know that when we retire in a couple of years, she can expect some winter visitors :) . I will happily enjoy the few really nice days that you mentioned. I, too, miss the bugs – notably the dragons and damsels. Can’t wait to see them again!!
