What time is it?

I was up for most of the day today, Sunday, and decided to stretch out around two o’clock. When I got up from the sofa,I looked at my watch and saw that it was five o’clock.

There is something about an overcast day at Undisclosed that gives you permission to actually take it easy. We went for Mass later because we slept in a bit. We stopped at a produce stand and bought two cantaloupes because we love to enjoy them at the peak.What is even nicer is that we have been coming up early in the morning, rather than later on Sunday night.So even losing a few hours to napping, well, there is the rest of Sunday to savor. If the weather holds,we are going with friends to the Coast Guard base to see the sunset parade of the cadets. I am really excited about that: it is something that I always wanted to see and they say it is quite the sight!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Down the shore everything’s alright

Today is the first day of summer, and it seems that anyone who could, made it down the shore to celebrate the longest weekend of the year.

It is an overcast day here at Undisclosed, although the sun has been playing hide and seek in the clouds. Unfortunately, at least to me,it is also humid, which is my least favorite of weather conditions.My only consolation is that there are maybe three more months of humidity and then fall shows up. My father, and my mom, too, on occasion, would remark about wishing your life away, but humid days, as I get older, well, I can do without.

Pancake breakfast is done, fresh shower under my belt, cold iced tea in my cup… life is good.

Happy First Day of Summer.
