Summer chalkboard

Our mid summer chalk board ala Jason Mraz's song, "I'm Yours" which will forever remind me of driving through Australia with NZ on our first trip down under during the summer of 2008. I just love that line so much and always have. 

It's also so very fitting for our weather lately. 

With the humidity laying the smack down on us this month, pretty much everything feels like it's melting . Our interior walls are concrete so we hang our frames and canvases with 3M hooks. In the next week or so, they'll start peeling off the wall if I have our doors open for long. It's crazy humid. Words can't describe just how it feels. Call me a spoiled Californian, but I'm convinced that humidity is the devil. 

The kids have a blow up pool on the patio which we have filled with water. Sal informed me that the water was too warm the other day. I added a tray of ice cubes to it and he let out a nice, "ahhhhh, dats nice mama". 

Funny kid. 

So, yeah. It's freaking hot and humid. 

But guess what?

This is our last summer here!

Next summer, rest assured, we will be building sandcastle and ingesting our share of saltwater and sand on the beaches of home.

  1. My jealousy that you'll be home with the saltwater and beach... so big! Humidity is ugly in the Midwest.

    Also, I HEART Jason Mraz. So many memories.
