"Embracing summer"

holy experience

421. Another heat wave breaking, just when I feel like I can't take any more hot weather
422. Swimming!
423. Evening swims
224. An apartment so close to the water
425. Watering day at the dacha after a month without: we can take showers again!
426. An elderly couple out hanging laundry together (I just happened to glance out the window and see them. He's holding the tub of wet sheets and pulling the clothesline down a little for her; she's using clothespins from a string around her neck to hang up what he hands to her.)
427. Rain
428. Rain
429. Lots of rain this summer!
430. Everything is still green
431. . . . and not burning

It's wonderful to "embrace" the heat instead of complain about it! That's hard to do!! I know you are enjoying the swimming, though, and it is nice that you are that much closer to the water! Our weather is not terrible. There seems to be a breeze now and then that makes it pleasant! Very nice! Praying for you all and PLEASE do the same for us!! Oh! And, tell Will that he'd better be bringing one EMPTY suitcase with him!! Love y'all!!
