An Early Summer

What beautiful weather we've been having!  The sun was shining so brightly today, I thought the squinting I was doing was going to produce a headache.
But the warm air has it's negatives as well.
I've successfully murdered five or six stink bugs and saw a fight go down between a few carpenter bees today.  I also managed to take out an entire ant colony by setting out attractive food that was covered in poison. 
I have yet to see my first spider of the year.  But, I swear I saw one and even made John kill it.  It turns out that it was just dust on the air conditioner.  But, as far as "spider drills" go, he performed very well.  And in my defense, this "piece of dust" had legs on it. 
Driving around in my car after my doctor's appointment, I opened up the moon roof and was blissfully unaware of how messy my beautiful hair was becoming.  The breeze and warmth of the day was intoxicating. 
I long and yearn for a nice, extended summer.  Full of outings and day trips here and there. 
I don't know if I'll be able to manage a lot this summer.  Being disabled (and I mean, truly disabled) puts "What are we going to do this summer?" question in perspective.  I do, however, have high hopes of fun in the sun.
I know whenever September rolls around, I'll be asking myself where the time went and why we didn't do more.  So, this summer, I really want to change that.  I want to be saying, "Wow!  We did a lot this past summer!"
We do have tentative plans on visiting "The Happiest Place on Earth" come February or March of 2014.  Who it's the "happiest place on earth" for still boggles me.  It is such an expensive way to meet Mickey Mouse and all his annoying friends.  But, you only live once.... sort of.... I mean,  I know I'll be living again after my death.  But,  I highly doubt Jesus has a Disney World up in Heaven. 
Maybe He does... who knows.  Nobody- until they experience it.  And once they do, it's a little tough to talk about...
So, hopefully, I'll feel well enough to enjoy the summer with my family and have lots to talk and blog about come Fall...
