I am a Summer

Climbing à la Wisconsinaise

Rocks are warm, and friends are willing to climb them with me.

Tomatoes are a-growing in the back yard. So are radishes, arugula, basil, thyme, oregano, rosemary, and parsley. Hopefully the peppers and squash will fruit up, soon.

I can go for a run outside without fear of getting hurt on ice: I’m healthy and it’s warm outside.

Fresh figs, though they are not local, are available at the market.

Jumping in a lake is still as wonderful as it ever was. So is having a friend paint your toenails.

The basement is the coolest place to be, due to its temperature and to the fact that it is where my husband plays XBox Kinect with me.

The world does have problems, and there is plenty of room for improvement in my life. Still, I’m feeling gratitude for this life and for summertime.
