The July 4th weekend really and truly marks summer, doesn't it? Summer weather patterns set in and we get thunderstorms -- Some are pretty severe like the one we had on Thursday which closed our road for a few hours when a tree fell. As long as our power doesn't go out, I love to hear the rumble of thunder in the distance, watch the skies darken and hear the pounding rain. I enjoy watching the sun come out again--Then there are those times when there is both both rain and sunshine at the same time.
In July, I think everyone slows down. After all, it’s too hot and humid to do much of anything but sit. Grab a cool glass of something to drink, put your feet up and relax.
To me, that sounds pretty good, and we did just that on Saturday when we met 2 other couples at a local winery. The setting of the winery is lovely and it was an enjoyable afternoon catching up with friends we don't often get the chance to visit.
I think that every month, every season has its own pleasures. Though I like to complain about a lot of things...
I’m just going to be quiet, and appreciate what July has to offer.
