Not a Wordless Wednesday

The temperature in New York this week is in the nineties. Today the thermostat in my car read 101F. People all around are wilting.

Get with the program people! We live in New York and this is the summertime, the BEST weather we're going to have so enjoy it now because around the corner "you know what" is lurking!

It's a four letter word beginning with an "S" and ending with a "W".

Just dwell on that for a moment while I go about my business.

There is no way I'm going to complain about the heat. Nope. I am loving the heat and humidity. That is a fact. The summer has to be the best season for all the obvious reasons and painting is a big one. I can move it all outside and enjoy the weather. The sun, the scent of flowers and grass, the colors of it all, everything is just beautiful.

That said, I worked on, and finished, another watercolor painting.

  1. I have to admit, I'm with you. I'll take the heat and humidity any day over nasty winter. While my hair may not agree as it is expanding as we speak. When I got up this morning the humidity was 94% and it wasn't even raining. had not rained. oh well. like you said, it's summer. this is what summer does. enjoy it cause the cold nights are much longer than the dog days of summer in my book. Speaking of book, sorry I left one here.

    Your painting is beautiful!

  2. Jamie, I so agree with every word of your "book"! Thanks for dropping in and commenting!
