memories of summer
(all photographic images in this post by bomobob, found on etsy, of course!)
random thoughts and little snatches of childhood memories that have come to me lately:
mom and my siblings and me hiding under the huge library table in the basement during those magnificent summer storms...while my dad watched the weather from upstairs, and my mom fretted about him
the cool quiet of the public library we visited often...and then leaving with a huge stack of books. feeling so wealthy if i had a whole new selection of books to choose from! nancy drew, the hardy boys, etc...
hot, sticky nights (before air conditioning)
listening to the distortion of my voice when i talked into a whirring box fan
popsicles. i loved popsicles.
the magic of the ringing bells on the bike driven ice cream treat cart - oh, the excitement! the orange sherbet push-ups that had bubble gum in the bottom...
