Praise the Lord! My husband installed our window air conditioner last night, just before the first day of temperatures that are forecast to reach into the 80’s and/or 90’s. Being born in October, I am NOT a fan of summer. I love summer food but, as a fair-skinned individual of Irish/Scottish descent on my mother’s side, the sun and I do not get along at all. I burn at the drop of a hat, even with buckets of sunscreen; my eyes are quite sun-sensitive; plus, I am just not into a lot of summer activities like going to the beach, swimming, etc. I am more the egghead museum type, I guess.
So, since the temperature is already in the upper 60’s and the humidity is 96% at 6:45 AM, I will be in my house today, enjoying the air-conditioned space. I hope you enjoy your day as well. God’s peace.
Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.
