Summer Rhythm

I had a feeling that, despite the daunting heat, I would love the change of pace that our Summer would bring in our town and I was right.  A local friend told me the secret to enjoying an Arab Summer and that is to make much of the evenings and embrace rest during the day.  What good advice.  Our family would add our other secret: the roof pool.  At least daily and having lots of people come join you there.  And lots of popsicles.  And couples time in the evening breeze each night after bed time.  And enjoying time with families we don’t usually get to see.  And properly celebrating Independence Day.  And crafting with local friends.  And lots of smoothies and Jeremy’s homemade ice cream. And eating the few things that actually made it in our garden.  And dusky owl sighting walks…
