Summer is finally here.  I’m sorry that summer saw fit to arrive three days before the new school year arrives, though!

After the scorching hell of July and the first two weeks of August, summer is welcome indeed.  I have my windows open and am enjoying a breeze.  The flowers outdoors look healthier.  And the crape myrtles are in full bloom again.

I rose this morning to a text from N, who joined me for a BBQ brisket lunch and some flower buying at Soulard Market.  We also stopped by Florists Row for more flowers for his apartment.

Having now put zinnias from the market in four rooms of my house, and having finished some laundry and tidied, I’m thinking of a brief nap.  K is due at some point, perhaps for us to ride bikes, or perhaps just to grill some food and enjoy being outdoors.

I did make it to work today to do some testing of the new music theatre students.  Samson the Feist rode along and greeted people with his usual tail-wagging barkfest.
