Summer is in full swing round these parts, which mostly means that when I'm not working, I'm doing everything I can to ensure that I am either swimming or eating ice cream.

When I was little, I hated summer. My birthday in August was pretty nice, and I liked being on vacation, but being hot made me so miserable that those other things just couldn't compare to more moderate temperatures in the spring and fall. Now, though, summer is my favorite. The heat is still a little uncomfortable, but mostly it's an excuse to alternate between swimming in every body of water I can and parking myself in front of a fan with a novel.
I'll take it.
