Calling out

While some may be declaring the end of summer, I believe the last two days have been our first glimpse of true summer. It feels just like the first days of summer in Wisconsin, but instead of coming out from beneath wool sweaters and mittens, we are slipping into light pants and stepping out into comfort. If only everyday could be 75, with puffy little clouds and a gentle breeze.

I opened the windows this morning, to let the fresh summer breezes in. Zoe hopped in the window and took to her old past-time, chatting with the passing pedestrians. The problem is our front windows are 70 feet from the curb and up a hill.

Did she really think the young guy, talking loudly on his cell phone was going to take notice of a little black cat in the window? What if she meowed at the top of her lungs? Sadly, he just kept walking.

Like my cat, I’m busy trying to get to know the neighbors. The best way to network seems to be yardwork, and I have plenty. Summer, the time for gardening and friend making.
