First Full Day of Summer

9:30 AM on the back deck

Warm weather suits me just fine.
Whew! It is really hot here too! I really like this photo. I love the beautiful flowers in the background.

Louise my friend, I am doing better than expected, but pushed it too much today. But I am definitely happy to be on the other side.
Thank you for being so instrumental in uplifting me.
Will send you another note, soon..but I have pushed it today in sitting up, so I am going to rest, now.
But I did want to make sure I stopped by to say HI!
XO

Great documentation of a delightfully warm summer day...

I say bring on the heat! My husband can't stand it, but I hate being cold, and to me there's nothing better than a hot summer day. I can, however, do without humidity!

Hi Louise, thanks for your comments on my photos! (: I'll tell you a little about the Birman breed of cat - they are one step down from the Ragdoll, (the Ragdoll comes from the Birman crossed with another brred, I'm not sure which one), are very placid and friendly, love being picked up and cuddled, follow you around the house, just love human contact - unlike a lot of cat breeds who can be aloof! They have the points like Siamese, but are nothing like them. Oscar is a Lilac/Tabby Point boy and is 5 years old and my little baby - I don't have kids of my own, so he is my child! The Birman is a really delightful breed, has loads of personality and stems from Burma. Years ago they used to be kept by temple priests in Burma and serenely sat at the doors to the temple. They somehow made their way to France where they were recognised as a breed - and the rest is history! If you love cats - check them out on google!

It has been a really hot summer here too. What disappoints me is that we no longer seem to have Spring. It gets hot right away.
posted June 23rd, 2010  
How do you do it? You've managed to make a thermometer look elegant.
posted June 23rd, 2010  
This made me laugh, I have been complaining about the heat for the past week! So humid here...and working outside with all the bugs is no fun! However, your picture makes me want to have a garden party! LOL!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Oh, how I would love some of your heat over here. It has been sunny, but still pretty chilly over my way.
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Wow! That is quite toasty for Lunenburg. It's way too hot here...humid as well. ick :(
posted June 23rd, 2010  
FYI...I wouldn't be happy if we had a lot of humidity... It's been dry on days like this with a bit of a light breeze...very easy to take!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
One more quick note ( I know, I know! ;-)

Brad used to drive a cab...and he noted that if the weather did anything for more than 3 days in row...no matter WHAT the weather was, people would complain.
I've always thought that was funny.
It's never stopped me from complaining of being too hot, though.
I'd much rather be cold than hot.
When you're a woman of a certain age ( I like to call it, "refined" ), heat is a killer! ;-)
posted June 23rd, 2010  
I agree... I love the heat!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Hot here and humid, which is worse!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
me too! spend some time reading in the sunshine myself today!
thank you so much for sending the link to your daughter's photo--i LOVED it!! how do you attach a photo like that to your comments?
and another question--you said she has a book of photo-strips--where can i find it? that sounds so fun!!
and as an update--i added my profile info as promised! :)

Pretty warm for me, but a lovely time to sit out, sip tea and read!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
I'm a total warn weather wuss, and we're at about the same temp in Chicago, so I'm pouting a little. It's a great shot of the thermometer. As for the rhubarb tips, I don't know if I have any. We've had so much rain this month, and it seems to be really helping along all of my veggies and herbs. My tomato plants are already pretty huge too.
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Great shot! Love the perspective! I too love the heat.
posted June 23rd, 2010  
It was at least 96 here today and you could cut the humidity with a knife. Tomorrow is supposed to be worse. I might just move to Alaska by the weekend! This is a wonderful shot Louise!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
thank you, thank you for your help and encouragement!!
and i'm following your daughter too now, so i will ask her about the book! :)
posted June 23rd, 2010  
this is great, it was about 95 here today and 99 is supposed to be the temp. tomorrow..the humidity is what is really killing us!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Love it, Louise! Your photo, your caption, and what the thermometer shows! That must be really nice for Lunenburg! Here in Missouri was a lottle but warmer...or hotter, let's say... 103 degrees... thank God for ACs! I am sure Billy & David can't say no to you and will make you some tarator. If you try iy, let me know how you liked it ;-))

Great pic to show us Aussies just what we are missing out on,lol. I too love the warmer weather.
posted June 23rd, 2010  
i agree with Slava...it's hot here in the midwest! especially with the humidity..outdoors today was like a steam room! glad you are having nice weather, though! thanks for you lovely sentiments on my daisy photo. gigi is just about 5 blocks down from my house, so we're planning on visiting every couple days!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Wow hot hot hot! Almost as hot as that in London this week! Great photo, I bet you're out there enjoying the weather!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Oooooh getting a bit warm...summer is here =)
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Ah... that's a bit warmer than we ever see! Like the picture.
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Great idea to show the thermometer. That is hot. I just wrote to Slava that we have here 20C (68f). I like when it's between 20-25c, enough for me. Have a lovely day.

have a great summer Louise...I always have it here in my country..even most of the time during the rainy season...
posted June 23rd, 2010  
What a great composition! I love it, Louise!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Wow, and it isn't even July yet? That must be some kind of record! ha ha!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
It was that hot here today too.. when its cold I wish for warm weather and when its hot I wish for cooler weather..lol.. I am never satisfied I guess.
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Ohhh, summer, I want summer back here please, aren't you guys done with it yet? lol Nice shot :)
posted June 23rd, 2010

posted June 23rd, 2010  
Excellent shot!

Hehe, ours do create a similar pattern! This is a lovely photo, I love the composition. I can't believe it was near 32 degrees so early!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
great picture!! I LOVE summer and would rather be hot than cold any day!! :)
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Wow that is hot hot hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
That looks too hot to be in the morning~!
I can't stand hot weather.... I'd rather be an icicle than a puddle, you know?
:)
posted June 23rd, 2010  
I love the colors in this photo and great perspective!! :)
posted June 23rd, 2010  
If it's in the 80's already you'll need something refreshing to keep you cool today!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Those colors are just lovely. Your photo really "feels" like summer. I love the slight hint of blue in the background
posted June 23rd, 2010  
That's so hot for so early in the day. Sit back, relax, have a glass of lemonade, maybe some strawberries, take a dip in the water and enjoy the summer.
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Love it! I hope you are enjoying the warm weather!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
This shot definitely tells a story ... great composition! Warm weather suits me just fine, as well! LOL!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Nice capture Louise! You can have summer, though. I personally am counting the days until fall...
posted June 23rd, 2010  
brilliant way to showcase what the temp is, louise. the colors in thebackground are fantastic, too.

i love the heat, too! whenever i find myself wanting to complain about being too hot - i think of winter. that bone chilling cold... ew! i'd take being sweaty over that any day. cool photo.
posted June 23rd, 2010  
warm weather is always nice :) especially if you have a nice cold drink in your hands....and NO MEXICAN FOOD!!! that's upsetting, I bet there are plenty of other tastey resaurants where you are now that we dont have here though :)
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Louise dear dear, what a very creative and straightforward photo to remember the first day of summer! i would not have thought of including the thermometer - this made your shot just perfect, and with the hot pink flowers and leaves that look oh-so-fresh on the side!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Scorching!!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Great shot, Louise!
posted June 23rd, 2010  
This is great. Enjoy the sun. It's very summery here too.
posted June 23rd, 2010  
Great picture, the flowers are beautiful! I love the warm weather as well :)

That's hot for 9:30 even in Richmond. Do you have air conditioning in NS?
posted June 24th, 2010  
Yikes, I am glad you like warm weather because that is really warm for 9:30am! Is that typical for Lunenburg in the summer? Is it humid there?
posted June 24th, 2010  
At that hour, the sun is actually shining on the deck and the thermometer there, so it's probably not a true reflection of the heat index around town. (Made a good story, though :-) It's toasty to sit out back on a sunny morning, but no, it's not generally humid. (The thermometer is just outside the window in the pantry http://365daysintheyear.shutterfly.com/2068) Also, I don't know anyone up here with air conditioning. The house is usually quite cool, and is built to capture a breeze if you open the front & back door at the same time...

It seems we're all going to endure a very, very hot summer! Was 102F when I left work at 4:30pm today :/. I can't imagine how badly August is going to fry us!
posted June 24th, 2010  
It's 52oC here! :(

ryc: I live in Tennessee, but right on the TN/NC/GA line. I actually work in Georgia and go to North Carolina once a week, living about 10-15 minutes from each state line :). Thank you for your kind comment on my profile picture! That's actually me in the skypod at the CN Tower in Toronto. My husband and I went there in April of this year :).
posted June 24th, 2010  
If I've got it right, Dalia definitely is living in the hottest temp at 125.6 degrees!! (Now what are the rest of you whining about?!)
posted June 24th, 2010  
thanks for your kind words....much appreciated :)
posted June 24th, 2010  
Yikes, it was like that today after our little earthquake....... it felt good though.....
posted June 24th, 2010  
90ยบ at 9:30? Ouch! I like the cold.... but if you like warm we can all go to Vegas for the SoCal group get together! : ]
posted June 24th, 2010  
Great shot!
90deg F is 32deg C - nice and warm.
I can just imagine that!
posted June 24th, 2010  
Love the way you framed this one!
posted June 24th, 2010
