Summer is insanely humid but I am getting through it one bottle of water at a time. We have had days were it was 95 but “feels like” 102. Most days it is in the high 90′s, the kind of summer I remember as a child without the sweat pouring humidity of course. As I grew older it just didn’t seem to get as hot up north anymore. Here at midnight or 8am it’s often in the 70′s or 80′s temperature wise.
It seems to rain at least once a day in the summer and when I say rain I mean a downpour. Luckily it only usually lasts about 15 minutes but its ridiculously humid afterwards.
Back to paradise. Even with the humidity and downpours it really is paradise. I live in a small town so most of what we do is enjoy the view. We don’t visit the beach as much right now as it is too hot, but we occasionally visit for sunset or a late night excursion after midnight. Who wouldn’t when you are literally 10-15 min drive to one of 3 beautiful beaches. Sunsets are beautiful colors, the sea shells here are very unique and plentiful and the white sand makes it easy to walk the beach by moonlight.
The positivity flows like a river here and I really believe it is from the amount of year round sun light there is here. Everyone has bad days, but I have never seen such a large amount of positive people before. Anytime I am feeling off all I have to do to is stick my toes in the sand and listen to the waves for awhile. It gives one peace and some perspective on life. Natures form of therapy I wish everyone could experience everywhere.
I had a blog prepared on paper yesterday all about the Pens game the night before until I got a phone call that someone from my past had passed away. I wasn’t sure how to feel about it and really still am not. It is someone I dated before I met my husband. Someone I cared for alot at the time but haven’t seen since. I did attempt to contact him online but he never responded. I am not sure what his reasons were for not responding, we didn’t break up on bad terms. Maybe he was going through too much as apparently he knew he would be going and didn’t tell his family. I wasn’t sure if I should go to the funeral but in the end have decided to.
I also have plans to go to lunch with a friend today and attend an event at one of my kids schools tonight. Hopefully I will make it to the Pittsburgh Flea on Sunday. I don’t normally blog on weekends so maybe I will have the Pittsburgh Flea to blog about by Monday. I am just not in the right frame of mind to write anymore than this………….
