177 // This?

And suddenly it’s summer I suppose. Suddenly we’re regretting every complaint and plea for more sun and higher temperatures. Now any outside work has to start earlier and in the afternoons we’re trapped indoors. We’re exhausted by the heat but sleep is impossible until the night air cools long after the sun has gone down. It’s that time of year when cold showers become necessary both morning and night and ice cream becomes a perfectly acceptable meal replacement.

We’re miserable. We sweat, we sleep, we complain but no matter what we say deep down we love it. This is just what we missed all winter long.
