Summer Has Arrived

Hello everyone,

Summer officially arrived today since today marks the Summer Solstice.

“A major celestial event, the Summer Solstice results in the longest day and the shortest night of the year. The Northern Hemisphere celebrates in June, but the people on the Southern half of the earth have their longest summer day in December.

Awed by the great power of the sun, civilizations have for centuries celebrated the first day of summer otherwise known as the Summer Solstice, Midsummer, St Johns Day or the Wiccan Litha."

I’m hoping that this Summer is much more pleasant than this Spring has been; for with all the ups and downs in temperature and the wild barometric pressures- my Fibromyalgia has really been acting up.

Today is also Baby Boomer Appreciation Day and since I am a Boomer I am definitely going to tip my Long Island Ice Tea in Celebration. Well it's still too early for that much celebrating so I guess it will just be a nice cold glass of my sun tea without the added spirits.

Both Genghis and I hope to get back to our routine of blogging soon - but this June has pretty much been the month from hell around here.

Talk to you soon.
