Lovely, summer is on it's way, pull out the sunscreen 'cause it's gonna get HOT and you don't wanna be red like a lobster, June.
Unless you live in the Pacific Northwest.
Saturday was beautiful. Sunny and warm and in the 70's. Kaylee and I spent most of the day outside. Soaking up the vitamin D, people.
Yesterday was cloudy. Even though the weather person said it would be just like Saturday.
It was still warm but there was no sun.
This week promises to have 60's and chances of rain.
Of course, because we don't get enough rain here as it is.
Even though we have been here four years? I still am not used to the mild summers.
Last year? It was so cold the news called the month of June, "June-uary".
That's the thirteenth month of the year specifically for the PNW to describe how FREAKING COLD IT WAS IN THE MONTH OF JUNE.
People walked around with COATS on, people. Not jackets, COATS.
That's just not right.
June is supposed to be littered with highs in the 80's pushing 90. Hot days and warm nights.
Days so hot that you are filled with a need to go swimming or play in the sprinkler. Or seek out air conditioning.
June is all about rushing to eat your ice cream before it melts and giving yourself brain-freeze. Or eating one of those popsicles in the plastic tube and then drinking the leftover melty juice like its Kool-aid.
I loved those popsicles as a kid.
So far, June is looking to be normal. Or as normal as it can be for here.
But it is only the sixth of the month.
