On this hot, humid Monday, it is difficult to begin writing without breaking into song lyrics about the "lazy, hazy crazy days of summer" and others tunes that fit in so well but I will try to keep my typing under control here.

This was the weekend of the super moon! Saturday night was a washout, literally, however, last night was blessed with a clear sky to showcase the amazing bright moon. I have seen this super moon other years but this year I actually had the chance to capture it in a photo, shared here. 

The moon was so beautiful to see with its glow shining a whole new light on the summer landscape.

Along with a super moon, it was actually a super weekend in so many ways:
  • with family gatherings
  • the scent of barbecues everywhere
  • the happy sounds of splashing in neighbourhood pools
  • a relative silence on the lawn mower front--I think it was just too hot to venture out with the mowers
  • NHL final playoff series for the Stanley Cup between the Boston Bruins and Chicago Black Hawks
  • local produce is available--asparagus, and strawberries
On Friday, I received an email link to the new Halcyon Summer issue. If you would like to stop by for a summer read, this issue is full of beautiful photos, lots of poems, including a haiku on summer by Yours truly on p.17--if you click on the link, you will go to that page but then flip through the whole issue for a summer treat. :)
Yep, it's "summertime, and the livin' is easy…." Have a great week, All!

that is an awesome moon photo. We watched it come up over the mountain while enjoying some family time around a bonfire, but I have no such skill in capturing photos at night.

Thanks so much, Joan!
It must have been neat to see the moon rise over the mountain--only hills in this area! :)
