I’m trying something different in this blog post. I’m typing the thoughts that come right off the top of my head, and won’t go over it again before I click publish. I usually save first drafts for a while, then clean them up before publishing. Hopefully this won’t be too messy.
You northerners reading this are likely preparing for spring. Cleaning out and looking forward to unsealing doors and windows to air out the house. Down here in Florida, I’m sealing up doors and windows to keep out the heat, which has begun as of April 1st.
The constant drone of the air conditioning already reverberates in my eardrums, and there are still six more months to go. The icy machine blast of air will numb my skin and my heart will long for nature’s comfortable breeze.
One step outside and beads of moisture will form on my forehead, under my arms, in the small of my back. On days spent going in and out of doors, two to three showers a day are needed if I don’t want to reek.
Smothered … as I walk the dog, humidity blankets my face, my breathing.
Soon, we’ll collect gallons of water, canned food, flashlights and other preparations for hurricane season.
Yep, it’s that time of year again.
