Summer is a hot, sticky affair in southeastern NC. Very humid. Very humid. Very, well, you get my point.
It is also full of sunshine, short on rain, plenty of lightening and bugs galore.
Days like today, are rare. At 8 am it is only 66 degrees outside. Right after Shelby was born, we experienced a brief summer withdrawal from the heat. For a couple of short weeks, temps were cooler, in the seventies as opposed to 90's. It was a couple of weeks I could take her out for walks. Last summer, huge and pregnant with Joey while chasing a toddler around, I had no such break.
This year, it is nice to have a break from being pregnant, although now chasing a toddler and a crawler, and getting a little break in the heat.
Thank God for small blessings.
