things I love about summer thursday

*sunripened sun warm tomatoes
*hot days
*cool Nagano nights
*fireworks big and small
*peaches, nectarines, watermelon, blackberries, blueberries...
*spending time with the girls
*BBQs
*screen doors (why did we go four summers without them??)
*Summer special chu-hais

And because I'm having a grinch of a day things I'm not loving about summer Thursday:
*the cucumber glut- I'm so over cucumbers
*hot fractious kids
*summer kid ailments- so far we have infected insect bites, sweat rash and probably the start of impetigo, too. Oh yeah.
*bugs so small they can get through the flyscreens. Seriously. That's just not right. Never fear I am going to spray them all with citronella oil- I will not be beat!
*the tourists. Just go home all of you. I know you're good for the economy but seriously you are going to stop and walk around the castle anyway so try and keep your eyes on the road while you're approaching, hey?

Ditto on most of that, but not the cool summer nights! We do NOT get cool nights. Spent last night awake and hot again!
