Calm

backyard

This photo, a glimpse of my backyard on the morning of Boy in Black's graduation party, represents the only quiet moment I had yesterday.

What a beautiful garden you have there.

PPB: Well, I'm an extrovert so I like busyness and confusion and lots of people here. But I figured I would post my excuse for not writing a blog post.

And of course, I did want you all to get a glimpse of my garden ....

I knew it would be beautiful. Perhaps there will be peaceful moments today, now that the big day is over.

Beautiful. I will be doing something next year like that I'm sure. OR at least driving and picking up the kids after.

I'm sure Boy in Black appreciated it.

Oh, the FLOWERS!

If you're careful, you can rig a dripping hose in front of a fan and it'll spray a relatively soothing mist on you.

They do this at a local playground with an industrial-sized fan. When the heat gets to be too much, just hang out in that area. Also my neighbors did it at a neighborhood cook out.

I saw (sun) umbrellas on Target's website with built-in misters.

This might be worth checking into since you apparently eschew air conditioning.

Not me. It's what makes Florida habitable for more than half the year.

Of course you might want to do something other than mess with the laptop while you're being misted.

Oh, we might have to play around with a fan and the garden hose.

I don't like air conditioning because it means that everyone stays indoors. But then again, I live in a climate in which we only get one or two heat waves each year. If I lived in a place like Florida, I am sure I would change my mind about air conditioning pretty quickly.
