More Summer, More

More Summer, More

It’s going so fast. I am trying to savor each day, but that seems to make them fly by even faster. Here are some images I’d like to hold on to. I become obsessed with the Electrician‘s butterfly bush as the the summer rolls on. Monarchs start fluttering around dancing in the air like a child is erratically pulling them with a string. There are a few, then there are many. Here is a rare Swallowtail eating some tasty nectar.

Mr. Blue Sky. The view from my hammock.

All my favorite fruits are in-season. A sweet, juicy retreat before the dense, starchy Autumn.

Splitting time between Long Island and my apartment in Brooklyn, I get the best of both. They both reinforce each other’s better qualities.

The maritime motif of the Nautical Mile, a few blocks from The Electrican‘s house.

I have the time to play tourist. The Grand Central ceiling is one of my favorite city-isms.

And I eat. A lot. Some people lose weight in the summer and bulk up in the winter. I do the reverse. Here are some treats I picked up from Champs Family Bakery to fuel Ladies Night.

And at the end of a long day in the sweltering NYC heat, there’s time to cuddle up with my special buddy Frankenstein

I ❤ summer!
