My quotes today are on warm weather... or heat! Cause its almost 90 degrees today and I am remembering how much I do not like Summer... but I am taking what I can from this day... its not as hot as it could be!

"At the entrance, my bare feet on the dirt floor, Here, gusts of heat; at my back, white clouds. I stare and stare. It seems I was called for this: To glorify things just because they are."
~ Czeslaw Milosz

"Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability."
~ Sam Keen

"Summer is a promissory note signed in June, its long days spent and gone before you know it, and due to be repaid next January."
~ Hal Borland

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time."
~ John Lubbock

"The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." ~Author unknown, commonly misattributed to Mark Twain

"Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world." ~Ada Louise Huxtable

:D very nice quotes! I think I'm ready for warm weather...ok, here it's HOT weather in summer, lol. I don't really like the heat, but I do love that the boys can play outside all day and the convenience of not having to bundle them up to leave the house!
