After work this afternoon, I took my little beagle, Hank, out for some play time. Although the weather here in the Northeast has been very muggy and humid this summer, I thoroughly enjoyed the warm breezes today.
I found a nice, cozy spot under the trees and watched them dance for me.
As I lay there, I thought of all of the wonderful ways that God's creation speaks to us. The trees were whispering in the breeze and I could hear the crickets chirping (a sure sign that it's August). Some geese went honking overhead, in the direction of west, in the bright blue sky full of tall, puffy white clouds.
This afternoon reminded me of when I was a child and me and my siblings spent most of every day outside. We would take a blanket, some books and maybe a couple of toys and just enjoy the summer. I need to do that again.
I want to savor these last few weeks of summer. Drink lemonade. Go to a fair. Eat ice cream. Read a book outside. Go to a farmer's market while the cukes, squash and tomatoes are in abundance. And take more dips in the pool.........
Ahhh, it's waiting for me!!
