Take Time to Notice the flowers

Isn't this a happy flower? On Saturday, I spent nearly 4 hours cleaning out my classroom for the last time. (I think a Yippee is in order!) By the time I was finally finished I was hot, tired and ready to go home. For the past three years, I have passed this bush, without ever really seeing it. Truth be told, I probably wouldn't have noticed yesterday, if not for Midnight. Midnight, being a curious puppy, was fixated on a dead bug and would not come when I called her. I swung back around to call her again and literally looked at the flower head on. My first thought was "Where did this thing come from? Surely I would noticed it......." How many more things have I missed that are right in front of my face?

As far as I'm concerned....

This afternoon, I was on my way to Barnes and Noble (my mother ship) when I looked at the thermometer on my truck. 96 DEGREES! It's not even June yet! Somehow that does leave me with high hopes for a cool summer. As far as I am concerned, SUMMER IS HERE. As long as my air conditioning keeps working the threat of the impending heat and humidity won't bother me at all. Of course, there are some foolish people that are dancing around like sun-baked bunny rabbits at the thought of frying their skin for yet another season. I, however, have begun begin my season of hibernation. It's just too stinkin' hot to go outside. So, I stay inside as much as I can during the day- I only go outside in the early morning hours or after the sun has gone to sleep.

Happy Non-Partisan, Completely American Day-AKA Memorial Day

Q: Do you know why today is called Memorial Day?
