I Told You I Would

Shiny, wet leaves this morning, looking out my window from my "blogging post".

I told you I would repost.  But I'm not.  Today is Poetry Friday over at Amy Ludwig VanDerwater's Poetry Farm, and I have linked my post from Sunday to it today.  So Poetry Friday people will be going to my post about the e-zine, Shadows Express to read "Two Rainbows and the Moon", while we stay right here...
So what shall we do?
We're here in Maine, Vacationland...ah, a trip to the beach, a picnic, hike the trails, go fishing, pick strawberries, kayak the bay, eat some Gifford's ice cream, do some hammock stretching exercises...
Oh, it's raining outside... again?
It's actually cold enough in the house to turn on the heat.  A while ago there were a couple of sweltering, days and nothing was funny.   It got so hot in the middle of June, we broke down and bought an air conditioner.  That was evidently all we needed.  I was amazed by its cooling effect.  Most people have to install the air conditioner to have it work.  Ours is still in the box.  I may have to return it, it's making it rain now, too.  I don't know how to turn it up with the box still sealed.
Well, time to get that sweater and some socks...
and a puzzle or the cribbage board...
and hot chocolate.
Ok, really, I'm getting my socks and sweater.  And Gifford's is going to have to wait (yes, we eat ice cream even in winter here, but that's when we're wearing socks and not standing in the rain... well, wait... no, rain doesn't matter).
Anyway, I'm freezing.  But it's better than being hot, I think. 

Totally unrelated event as I finished this post:
HA!  I just saw something out of the corner of my eye... a big ole' wild turkey was looking in my sliding glass door at me (remember the one with no porch).   I guess they don't mind the cold, rainy weather.  Barefooted, too.
I love it here.

    1. Hi, Deb! Hope you are down at the lake. I need to check in again. You need to get some relaxing in. Before you know it school will be back in session and you will have spent your whole summer gearing up for it! Get those toes in the water! Hope your weather is better out there than it has been here.

  2. This is a poem in itself, Donna! I'm so glad about your published poem, but must comment on the weather, too. I just spent quite a bit of money repairing my air conditioner. It was 98 here yesterday, and it's fixed, & it worked! But as you said, now we have a cold front moving in, so I won't need it. Maybe having an air conditioner is just what it takes! I didn't see a turkey this am, but when I raised the front blinds, a baby bunny ran off my porch!

    1. Oh, I miss rabbits on the lawn. We used to have them in other places we've lived, but for some reason (oh, yeah, let me think, we didn't have owls and hawks in those places) we don't have many squirrels and we have no rabbits.

  3. My air conditioner is still in the closet. All I had to do was say "Do you think we should get it out?" before the hot weather went away. I made a mental note for the next heat wave.

    I agree that freezing is better than being hot.

    1. It's amazing how these new air conditioners work!

  4. You're making me want my socks. Because, although it's supposed to get up to 90, today, it's currently not even 60, and my feet are cold. But cocoa sounds good, too, and I haven't made my morning mocha, yet...

    1. Oh, yeah! Socks and mocha... take advantage of the coolth this morning to enjoy those! 90 degrees, though still cooler than body temperature, is just too warm.

  5. Has it been raining in your part of the State for live forever? It's been raining, drizzling, misting, and whatever else wet with no end in sight. *sighs* I want some Maine sunshine.

    1. Maine sunshine must be a limited supply this year...it's being rationed out in small doses it seems.
