Welcome Summer

Yesterday was a very good day. After doing stuff around the house I got my stuff and got to paint in the freshly mowed back yard as the sun set. The wonderful thing about summers here (one of the whole list) is that the sun takes its sweet time when setting. I went out at about 6:30 pm and got a couple of hours of painting. Then I enjoyed the last of the sun laying down on the grass, looking up a tree surrounded by fairy tales and summers. I think I smelled like sunshine after the last ray of sun had touched the highest leave in the tallest tree I could see. And then, out of every corner, fireflies came dancing, close to the ground and by the dozen. It was amazing, the feeling of summer, the dry paint on my hands, the coolness of the ground sending its energy through my back, the few drops of sweat on my forehead... I am in love with this summer.
