Feeling Hot Hot Hot

Hi there, Kids!

I recently mentioned that we were having an unseasonably cool June here in my neck of the woods, but let me tell ya . . .

July … is … HOT.

We’re in the midst of a week-long heat wave that’s accompanied by my favorite thing in the whole world (not!) – high humidity! 😉

(Ok, ok, I’ll stop whimpering.)


The theme for today’s post is “summer”. I’ve paired a vintage illustration with a sweet little summer poem. The poem brings back memories of summer nights and daylight savings time. Hope you enjoy.

Bed in Summer

by Robert Louis Stevenson

In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
In summer quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.

I have to go to bed and see
The birds still hopping on the tree,
Or hear the grown-up people’s feet
Still going past me in the street.

And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?


Stay cool….



I’d love to hear your thoughts!
