Michigan is a wonderful state with four distinct seasons... usually. But this summer... there have been so many nights with the mercury dipping into the forties, and I have to say... I don't mind it. I guess I'm only saying that because I didn't have my usual girls only camping trip this year. Too many conflicts among my college friends... an operation, a wedding trip, that kind of thing. Camping in this weather is no fun, and Lake Huron, where we normally head, is too cold for much in the way of swimming this summer.
I haven't done much of anything for fun, except try to stay sane in the wake of family conflicts and inter family squabbles (Freezer I'll Shoot - November 5th, 2013). So the cool weather has been just fine for me!
In fact the weather folks in Canada have coined a word for this month, calling it Augtober. But what I say is... is there ever really perfect weather? It's so seldom that you get the perfect day, and no one seems to agree on what the perfect day is, anyway!
What IS perfect weather? My sister, Becca, gets cold if a breeze so much as riffles her hair. My friend Valetta likes a summer day cold enough to freeze her lemonade. I love a day when the wind makes the treetops toss and bend.
And I love a summer day cool enough that a cup of tea in a thermal mug on the back summer porch is the perfect end of the day treat.
How about you... how has your summer been so far where you call home? And do you have an idea of the perfect day, weather wise?
No Mallets Intended, Book 4 of the Vintage Kitchen Mysteries, will be out on November 4th! Please watch my monthly Killer Characters blog entry for EXCITING giveaways in October!
