Summer Solstice

Happy Summer everyone!

Today is the first official day of summer, but it feels like summer is halfway over. Classes have been over for more than a month. My garden is rocking, owing to the fact that I finally broke down and hired someone to cut the grass for me, so I actually have time to like, weed and fertilize and water and sing to the plants. I've whitewater kayaked every weekend since Memorial Day. And there's only two months left before school starts again, and the weather turns and its dark.

Funny how I can worry about how dark it is in the fall on the the longest day of the entire year. What's wrong with me!?

Summer always goes just way too fast. Instead of the days slowing down, they speed up. Instead of long evenings on the back deck sipping iced tea, I'm running from place to place and trying to make up for the fact that I'm never home on weekends.

And did I tell you that I started taking weekly banjo lessons?

Apparently, my life's dream is become a character on Deliverance. I'm currently learning a song called "Bile Dem Cabbage Down." I think it has something to do with boiling cabbage, and maybe the Great Depression, which I think is the only time you should ever have to boil cabbage for any reason.

I have no idea why I've gone on such a rant. Too much daylight, perhaps.
