Tis the season – Zucchini season that is. Are you overloaded with Zucchini? We’ve actually been having a hard time finding good summer squash this year. I need to develop a green thumb and start growing more of our vegetables. Any plants that I am responsible for die. I have a black thumb for sure. I always joke with my hubby that unless it can talk, meow or bark, I cannot take care of it. It will die. This year we’ve had so much rain and so little sunshine that nothing is growing well.
It has been the weirdest summer for us. Usually it is extremely hot and humid. I’m talking the kind of humidity, that you start to sweat as soon as you get out of the shower. Ugh! Hate that. I’m starting to near the age where I will get an occasional hot flash. The last thing I want is to be hot. It might be time to move to the North Pole. At least if I get hot there, I can step outside and cool down. Getting good produce might be a bit of an issue though. My little one who is always freezing would not be happy about that move either. She comes home from school and turns off the ceiling fan. I turn it back on and she gives me a sad little look and pretends to shiver. The fan goes back off – I’m a sucker!
This year we’ve had nothing but rain. I use to love the rain; now I’m really sick of it. It is dreary which makes me feel like curling up with a good book. Remember those days before having children when you could actually do that after work? Sleeping in on weekend mornings, reading the newspaper, staying up late. Oh, life with little responsibility. Sure I think I long for those days but when my little one spends the night at her grandparents, I miss her like crazy. I miss her coming in each morning and leaning on me for a back rub. I miss her happy chatter in the morning. I swear she wakes up talking and doesn’t stop. She is so happy in the morning and full of energy. Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up like that every day? Oh to be young again. Good thing there is coffee!
