All the fields and pastures are brown.
The cats are mostly active at night.
Cows are huddled under trees, or soaking in ponds.
Snakes are on the loose.
A lot of grass fires happen.
Grasshoppers fly up in a cloud with every step.
Fire-ants are EVERYWHERE.
The hens go on a laying strike.
There's no rain.
The sunsets are gorgeous.
Pools are put into use.
Families migrate north or to the beach.
It's too hot to ride.
Road work is mostly done at night.
The lakes shrink.
The sun is relentless.
Most people are remembering how winter really wasn't all that bad.
So, why do I like summer?
I really don't know.
Maybe, it's because I'm used to it coming around, every single year, and there's nothing I can do about it.
Maybe, it's because I like getting reminded that having cooler months each year is a blessing.
Maybe, it's because I like looking out at brown fields.
Maybe, I just like it because I like it.
Maybe those reasons are correct, maybe not.
What are your thoughts on summer?
Do tell! I'd love to hear.
