"Maycomb was a tired old town, even in 1932 when I first knew it.  Somehow, it was hotter then.  Men's stiff collars wilted by nine in the morning.  Ladies bathed before noon and after their three o'clock naps.  And by nightfall were like soft teacakes with frosting from sweating and sweet talcum.  The day was twenty-four hours long, but it seemed longer. "

~ Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird 


Wherever you live, I hope you are staying cool in the sweltering heat.  A trip to the beach, a cool beverage, a hammock under a tree or sitting on a front porch  with a good book are great ways to enjoy a hot summer day! :)  Have a great weekend!


  1. Wish you a wonderful, relaxing weekend!

  2. Kris, I looooove this song - it's a classic. Have a nice weekend, and try to stay cool. It's been hot here in California, but sometimes we'll still get a breeze in the early morning.

  3. Dear Kris,
    ...we have a rainy summer here. From time to time the sun come and shine bit. Beside it we have only 19°C outside, not warm. However that be, I am going to finish some work I have to do in the basement today.
    I also wish you a great weekend with your family.
    Warm regards,
