Arrogant Clouds in July

Summer blew in on some high and mighty clouds.
Bringing hot air--
Mild humidity--
Soaring temperatures--

Over 100,
Still 15 to 20 degrees cooler than our previous residence.
The locals complain but I feel grateful.
Thankfulness washes over me like a waterfall.
Or perhaps it’s time to turn on the air conditioning?
Juiciest watermelons, straw hats, evening strolls under magnificent starry nights
Where the big dipper sits low and June bugs scatter,

Now that it’s July.

Are you thankful for something right now? 


  1. I'd take those temperatures without humidity. It does make all the difference in the world...

  2. We had humidity here earlier in the week, but it broke the night before last and has been cooler again. We have yet to really have a heat wave- sustained temps of 30+ for four or five days in a row, I believe.

    We might get punished in August.

  3. I'm thankful for many things...mainly the fact that I still have a pulse!

  4. How fabulous! I'm enjoying it ALL

  5. I am thankful you wrote this post !

    cheers, parsnip

  6. I'm thankful I live in Florida, but I turned on the air conditioning a couple months ago! 100 degrees and 15-20 degrees cooler?! I would DIE!! lol

    Lovely prose, too.

  7. Hi Eve,

    I could use some dry heat. It has been sweltering hot in the UK. Not much fun having my sweat dripping onto the boxes I'm packing.

    I'm thankful my internet hasn't switched off yet. It soon will and then it should start up again in my new place. Fingers crossed.

  8. It sounds like the perfect spot to me. Warm and wet in the UK – no change there then! Enjoy the temperatures but maybe turn on the air con so that you can get a good nights sleep.

  9. Hey Eve! It's been hot here lately...more so than usual anyways. I prefer cooler temperatures myself...20-25 degrees C is perfect. Where did you live before where it was 15-20 degrees hotter than 100?! Where ever it was I'd hate it there! lol!
    I'm thankful that I have the freedom to pursue a path of my choosing, and that, in spite of it all, life is pretty damn good.
