This photo shows a lady duck who landed in our pool a while back. She and her man hung out for a while, then flew away. That was the last we saw of them.
This holiday weekend is hot, y’all. And like that lady duck, I am spending time in the pool. It’s saving my life during the heat.
Having lived in L.A. for a couple of decades now, I remember when we used to have rain every year. Water Weather has come to mean something else entirely now. I’m grateful for the pool, but I do miss the rain. Our drought is incredibly sad to me. I don’t care about lawns, but I do care about life.
I’m not making sense now – not even to myself – so I’ll stop and try to enjoy the last official weekend of Summer. Hope you do, too. And I hope that wherever you find yourself planted on the globe, your weather is kind and inviting. Even if that means plopping down in a pool and doing your best duck impression.
