Summer Solstice

Filed under: — Jaime @ 2:31 am

We had a perfectly cloud free evening allowing us to appreciate the day of the most daylight. No stonehenge or crop circles for us though. Instead, I re-replanted one of our poor little catnip plants. I had only just transferred it last weekend to its first real pot. A neighborhood cat or a mixed up squirrel took advantage of the poor thing. Hopefully it will survive so our cats can be the ones to destroy it.

Otherwise it was a quiet start to the summer (with the exception of the hour I played bass, which is rarely quiet). It’s noteworthy that today is the official start to summer and as of yet, we’ve not turned the a/c on. I know! Normally we’re happy if we can make it through April and not have to turn it on. We’ve had an exceptionally cool summer. Plus, Mike just finalized sealing and insulating our attic ducts, so we’ve sort of been holding off until that got done. Really, we haven’t needed it. I prefer the fresh air anyway. This is a rare year and so I’ll enjoy it while I can. It won’t be long before the nighttime goes from comfortable to sultry. The humidity is already holding steady at 50% and as I said – cloudless evening.

Hello summer! Bring on the 4th of July!
