A Celestial Tug of War

Am up a whole lot earlier than I want to be or need to be, but the fur babe decided it was time for us girls to get out of bed and come downstairs. She pretty much rules the household, and we let her. Somebody has to exercise a little discipline around this place!

Another day of celebration for us earthlings--The Summer Solstice--the turning point of the seasons. Spring passes the torch over to Summer.

Stacations (stay-at-home vacations) are getting more and more popular. Our economy has alot to do with that, but that's not a bad thing. Going away from home is not necessarily the best way for a family to spend time together anyway. We love to see the young families playing backyard games, sitting around evening bonfires and roasting marshmallows, and daddies building tree houses for the kiddies. This summer we're just going to hang out and stay close enough to home so we can return the same day. Anyway that's the plan right at the moment. That could change in a heartbeat if one of us gets a zany idea.

Sure looks to be another wet, rainy day. Do you suppose that Miss Spring and Miss Summer are having a tug-of-war, and one of them is close to tears? I wonder if Spring doesn't want to leave or if Summer doesn't feel like taking over. Hmmmmmmm.
