Things I love about steamy summer days...

 ...the candy apple green scent of damp grass just mown...

                      ...carrying a big bowl of assorted vegetable peelings to the compost pile while I'm cooking supper...

...the sound of God's tater wagon turning over in the heavens...

.                   ...homemade mint syrup in my tea...

...how the swimming pool feels like a hot tub after a rainshower cools the air...

                 ...watching my hubby's eyelids droop while he reads the latest...

 ...green--everything's so green again...

                     ...cotton candy skies just before dark...

...Queen Anne's Lace mixed with zinnias and black-eyed susans in a pitcher of water on the table...


Things I dislike about steamy summer days...

...snakes...

...and mosquito bites. 


                                            I think the pros outweigh the cons.
