Summertime, Summertime, Sum- Sum- Summertime

Ninety degrees with 85 percent humidity is definitely summer weather in the midwest. I've learned to appreciate tank tops, even with my wobbly upper arms. The boys and I have learned to appreciate a good glass of lemonade and we have the recipe down pat: Fill the pitcher up with ice, roll three lemons to release the lemony-juice-goodness; juice the lemons, catching the seeds as best as you can before they go into the glass; pour juice into pitcher; fill pitcher with water; add five packets of splenda, stir and drink. Yummy and refreshing.

M and the boys also bought me a Super Soaker (water gun for you water gun novices). As in, "quick mom, get your swim suit on and come join us, you're on my team!" M filled his Super Soaker up with crushed ice for an extra cold squirt to the opposing team.

We saw the remake of Herbie the Love Bug, "Herbie Fully Loaded" and it was a fun family flick. It was also a nice way to get relief from the heat.

Well - I just learned that if you start a comment and then want to go back to find out what the water gun is called - - - you lose your whole comment in the meantime! So, as I was saying, I'm glad you're struttin' around in your tank top to stay cool but you'd think if you had icy cold water being shot from a . . . oh, shoot, now I just went back to see what it's called . . . hmmm. . . hmmmm. . . . oh, yeah, a Super Soaker! that that in itself would throw chills up your spine! Mmmmmyummm that lemonade sounds perfect! We're having hot cocoa in pretty-chilly-Oregon, though!

Well here in California we do both cold drinks for a few days, then the weather may call for a hot for a few. This seems to be the time of year that calls for both. Same with the clothes. Some days sleeveless, then you get out the sweats for awhile. M.P. had one of those super soakers, think he still does!
