Summertime and the reading list is easy!

Summer escaped my grasp.  The kids are back in school, college coursework began last Monday, and pools close in less than a week.

The sun is still in charge, paralyzing migraine sufferers while they drive on the interstate.  Air conditioners and ceiling fans hum to keep us cool and comfortable.

Meanwhile, that stack of summer reads is still sitting on the ottoman in the living room.  We were ambitious and set out to read our list, the library's list, Oprah's list, and our kid's list. Oh what a summer. And then there are the magazines. The May issues we never got to read, with outdated summer fashion advice and recipes.

The good news: we can play summer for one more week!!! Grab the stack of magazines and one of the books on the ottoman, mix up your favorite summer drink, and head to the pool.  Go easy on yourself. It's the summer after all, well what's left of it.
