Thankful Thursday

Picture taken at our Smalltownland ballpark in May '13.

Let us all take a moment and remember the warm, wonderful memories of summer.  Let us be thankful for those long ago sweat inducing temperatures and moments when we thought our hands might catch on fire from a too-hot steering wheel.  

Amen


"In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer."

  1. I'd take just a bit of warmth- say...60? Very tired of winter.

  6. Hi Michelle, Like the quote and thought. It's true, isn't it, without winter we wouldn't fully appreciate summer. :-) A beautiful picture as well. John

  15. So beautiful! I will try to mentally transport myself to the hot summer days. With a temperature reading of 9 degrees this morning it's kind of hard to shrug off the cold though!

  16. I am so glad we're having a sunny day here as I'm heading off to volunteer at Multnomah Falls and it makes for a nicer day when it's sunny. But the sun is at an angle that it never shines down on the falls. Brrr! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  19. Hot hot hot! And I am impressed with the appropriateness of the Camus quotation. I always wonder how people can come up with these quotations. Once I get past the pelican whose beak is bigger than his belly and two roads diverging in the wood (and maybe the quality of mercy not being strained), I have run out of poems.

  21. And here I am trying to work the frost bite out of my fingers from touching same steering wheel with no gloves on. I'm surprised I can read this typing..!

  25. I could use some warmth. It is freezing here tonight.

  26. Yes, Amen, from the land of ice & snow & arctic temps! :)
    When outdoors, we move fast - hustle to our cars.. walk briskly to get the mail.. rush through the door with firewood.
    One thing I love about summer is getting to be at leisure & move slowly outside - your photo says slow summer sunset all over it.

  27. Hope the heat comes soon. We haven't had any snow in my part of the UK this winter at ground level anyway. There's still time !!
