The rhythm of summer time ...................

vintage Straw hat with ribbon

Summer time and the living is easy. Fish are jumping and the cotton is definitely high as far laundry concerns in my case. I'm still washing & ironing the finds. Just a quick post to let you all know I'm not buried underneath all the clothes from my last post.

On another note, get an eyeful of my pale legs! I'm wearing shorts for the first this year and they seriously need to atleast match my arms. Looks like it is time for the tanning lotion again!

Quote of the day:
I walk without flinching through the burning cathedral of the summer.  My bank of wild grass is majestic and full of music.  It is a fire that solitude presses against my lips.  ~Violette Leduc, Mad in Pursuit

Summertime is one of my all time favorite songs. I have performed it a few times as well. It is just the perfect way to explain summer.
