summer It is supposed to be 101 degrees today - a good day for shaved ice. For the ultimate shaved ice treat - we put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the bottom. We have quite a few flavors now - grape, root beer, cotton candy, bubble gum, watermelon, banana, cherry, lemon-lime - possibly a few more I can't remember. This is so good when it is this hot. May 20th and 101 degrees - I guess our summer is here - and this heat should warm up the pool enough for me to finally get in. I am looking forward to summer - as always.
Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world.-- Ada Louise Huxtable
