Today’s humidity was oppressive, but I mustered on – must get more steps in! It’s all about the miles and adding steps in between bouts of wacky weather, or these frequent hot and humid mornings. But, I try to stay mindful, that come January or February, we’d give anything for this heat and humidity, while we freeze and complain about the temps, ice and snowy weather. Are all Michiganders malcontents, or is just me when it comes to the weather?
There were very few people out this morning … perhaps the muggy and buggy morn kept them hunkered down at home. It was so quiet you could hear the cicadas sing. I saw these small pine cones hanging from a branch and wondered if it was dew or sap dripping from them. A closer inspection suggested the latter, but I didn’t want to touch those pendulous drops and get my hands all sticky and then use the camera.
I shortened my walk, not just due to the tropical-feeling air, but my basement chores also had me scurrying home a little earlier than I would have liked. Yup, the basement beckoned me. I could imagine the big red shop vac welcoming me and whispering in my ear “hurry, come finish this job Linda, and your reward will be orderliness and harmony once again.”
Sounds like a plan to me.
