This Is What Summer Should Be

Summer in the Phoenix area is legendary for being hot--very, VERY hot. In fact, temperatures can be--and often are--more than 30 degrees hotter than those above.

For the last few days, it's been a different story. Children were playing in pick-up basketball games all over the neighborhood instead of holing up in air conditioned homes, playing video games. I was able to put the top down on the convertible without using the air conditioning.

Earlier this week, we were pet sitting for my sister's dog. Going outside to play fetch and take her for walks all over the neighborhood was not a chore.

We're going to enjoy it while we can. Before we know it, the high temperature will be approaching 120 and a dip in the pool will provide little relief.

Denise: It may be hot, but you're getting thunderstorms! That makes a difference. Here, it rains so seldom, that it's considered a treat. The last rain we had was sometime in April.
