It’s been quite humid these past few days in my little corner of Maryland. We have yet to turn on the air conditioning system here in the manor house, mainly because of the cost. It’s a large area to cool and we both think we may be able to live without it. We’ll see.
As I’ve mentioned before, there are many things to do to keep the heat out of a house, and during the day my husband keeps things going here, but when it’s humid there’s really not so much a person can do to combat that situation. Sometimes by the time I get home (like today), it’s just plain yukky. And tonight after dinner, I planned on cleaning 2 of the bathrooms. Exciting, I know!! But I hadn’t been able to get to them during my regular cleaning day (Saturdays) because we’ve been busy the past few.
Well, they’re spic and span now but it sure was hot while I was at it and despite a cool shower, baby powder and my favorite pj’s, I was still quite warm. I came downstairs to the living room and turned on the fan, but felt this wonderful breeze coming in from the front door.
It was heavenly and it beckoned me out to the front porch. As I sat there with a big smile on my face, it began to lightly rain. I watched the petunias slowly fill with droplets of water and then decided to run back in the house and get my camera.
I love a soft summer rain, don’t you?

And now some questions for you . . .
- Where’s your favorite beach?
- Where’s your favorite place to spend money?
- Where’s a good place to watch people?
- Where’s a good place to be totally alone?
- Where’s a place outside of work (or school) where you’re likely to run into people from work (or school)?
See you in the comments. Until then, my friends . . .
