We are in the midst of one of the coolest summers I can remember. We had a couple of weeks of really hot weather, but mostly it has been so mild. To have a day like today was in July is truly a gift. In a normal year, by 5 pm it is so hot and humid that it is miserable outside. This afternoon, I just sat out on the deck for a couple of hours with a good book, a glass of wine and two happy cardigans and it just could not have been more perfect. Tonight I have have the windows open and we are enjoying the most lovely cool breeze.
