Hello hello, world!

 I am feeling sweet just like orange scent, today!
Hope all is well with you, anywhere on this planet you stay.

Days are turning to summer so very fast here. 
Warm and long and bright. Like an August day.

Not a summer girl I am, already missing the winter and the rain. 
But I love summer in my dreams. Where this is allowed to wear just a cotton sun dress.
It would be white, pretty and light.
My footwear would be an olive gray canvas espadrille, or ... May I have none?! 

Barefoot walking on shore sands
With my darling one, hand in hand.

I'd like to sip an unknown pink drink. 
That taste takes me far to a Hawaiian beach. 
Green. Pink. Yellow and chic!

That's an original summer day;
Anything else is just ... something else!

What a brilliant dream, I found your blog by accident but it was a lovely find.

Right now i wish I was somewhere with a warm breeze where I could walk in and out the shade and drink cold lemonade. Maybe throw in an old rope swing for effect. Yesterday here the weather was unbearably hot, which is something people don't normally associate with Canada - but we have baking summers too!

I find myself longing for the days when the nights draw in sooner when it gets too much. But then I wish for the summer days back.

funny i was thinking the same thing about l.a. cause it was almost getting too hot here too fast. and then we seemed to have an early "june gloom" when it gets all overcast and misty. now it's rained for two days. and i don't know what to think! anyway, nice post and pictures!

Jodi Anderson said...

I can't believe that I've found another that loves winter and dislikes summer. I just adore winter. It is my very favorite time of the year. Summer... I can do without it!
