Summer is HOT. I don’t know how I could forget that — perhaps because I spent the last summer nursing a newborn (indoors) and the summer before that being plagued by morning sickness and thus fearful to leave our house (indoors). Oh, air conditioning, what a lovely thing you are. Toddler boys, however, don’t seem to understand the blessed bliss of it and would rather get dirty and wet outdoors. Today, we went to a fruit/veggie stand for some cheap broccoli, apples, and cucumbers, stopped by a park, ate lunch, and played with water in ours and the neighbor’s yards, all before naptime. Whew — I say, the boy can get stuff accomplished.
After he was settled, I left for an afternoon of journaling and reading — it’s Wednesday, you know. It was lovely, I drank a *FREE* iced mocha because of a filled-up point card, and God spoke to me.. it was lovely.
The weather has made me think a lot about fashion and style — and how they just have no place for me in summer. The things I like — scarves, layering, etc — don’t mix well with sweat and the hot, Hot, HOT-ness of summer here. I have basically three pieces that I’m rotating between (two dresses and a skirt), and when I’m just chillin’ with Jones and really don’t care, I wear some running shorts and an old tank top. People here, though, are always dressed to the nines, it seems. And they are wearing long sleeves and jeans. Its beyond me.
I’m really looking forward to fall so I can exercise more creativity with clothes.. What are your favorite clothing pieces?
