Of course, everyone (well, except me) is already talking about the excitement of summer, and how great the hot weather is, will be, etc. Though the official start of summer is weeks away, after Memorial Day, I think most of us go into summer brain mode. I am hoping that this summer will not be a brutal one, but in my heart I know better. So like every year, I'm trying to psych myself up for the things I actually do enjoy about summer (fresh fruit and veggies, spending the day at the ocean, for example) and try to be in as good a mood as possible. This year we won't be taking any vacation in the sense of traveling, but I'm hoping to take some days here and there to just not be at work, which after all is what vacation is about anyway.
I thought that some of these cartoons might give you a smile as we say goodbye to May and hello to June, while summertime barrels towards us.
One thing that helps is if you can dress more appropriately.
Also, keep telling yourself that it *is* summer, and you are supposed to take it easy.
This one reminded me of the past few days and all the rain - the other day, The Tim said, "Well, at least our plants are happy!"
Also, barbecues can be fun.
In the end, though, I can sympathize with Calvin ...
