Summer in Seattle

Filed under: Thoughts and Rants — Tom B @ 9:32 am

I am not sure if it’s the long gloomy winter months, or if it’s just indicative of having seasons…but, I am lovin Summer this year. After 20+ year in Miami where the weather goes from nice in the winter to unbearably too nice in the summer, having seasons is a hoot. Here that is just not the case. Spring was none too springie…with the cloudy weather dragging on way too long for my taste. But it did help with all the plantings. It seemed like summer would never arrive. ..and after a long dreary winter and cloudy wet spring I was for sure ready.

Well it hit about two weeks ago. Temps in the 70’s and 80’s….lots of work around the house including getting the house stained (it has cedar siding) and tons of work on our garden working to make it a sweet spot to hang out. Som time for taking Sadie to the beach to show off her incredibly fetching skills. And a great deal of wandring around enjoying that strange light in the sky…I got a chance to break out all of my Hawaiian shirts and shorts. Sweet!

Things cooled off yesterday and it may rain through the week end…but I think I can handle that. I sort of needed a break from the great weather to get some work done as I get a little wonkie when the sun shines…it just seems more special now that it did when it was a daily occurrence!

Life is good….
