A Spring in My (Summer) Step
What could possibly be causing everyone to feel so… SPROINGY?!!
Well, we’ve been having some morning and early afternoon cloud cover. This has significantly reduced how brutally hot it gets later in the day. This morning, the cover looked particularly dense and even though I got a late start on the day, the conditions were still just perfect for a walk. The diffuse, even lighting was quite nice for photography and the critters were being incredibly obliging. Though it was still warm, a cool breeze moved through every so often making me almost forget that it was mid-July.
As is often the case on blissful days like this, I stayed out much longer than I had planned. I came home tired. You know, that good kind of tired? The kind that’s full of happy steps walked on familiar trails. But, as it’s only 8 PM and I’m already yawning, I think I will wait until tomorrow to share the highlights with you all.
[For those that don’t know, my exuberant friend is a Western Gray Squirrel (Sciurus griseus).]
Did you see anything today that made you feel like doing a little hop, skip or jump?… Even just a little? *GRIN*
