I love summer although right now I could do without the sweltering hot days and nights that we are having. It cools off outside in the evenings, but our bedroom is usually about 88 degrees when I get into bed. It doesn't make for very good sleep. This whole week has been filled with restless nights and weird dreams. I sleep, but it's not solid or deep, and it feels like I wake up every hour although that may just be part of the weird dreams. I have no idea.

Nonetheless, it is still one of my favorite seasons. And while I wish my days were filled with sparkling blue swimming pools and days at the beach, I make due with enjoying our backyard and watching the garden grow. It's been a good gardening year and I'm thrilled to have so many tomatoes, eggplants and cucumbers growing. We also have some jalapeno peppers and a random watermelon. I didn't plant any watermelon so I am guessing that there was a watermelon seed mixed in with the cucumber seeds. Kind of cool since I've never grown watermelon before!

Be sure and check out all the other Summer submmissions over at Words To Shoot By. There are swimming pools and oceans involved!
