Welcome summer

Peaceful summer morning at the lake

Have you ever noticed that time seems to fly by so much faster as we get older?  At the beginning of the year I was working on new projects, preparing for the upcoming HD Expo that seemed a long way away (five months) and seeking inspiration for Martin’s re-entry into artwork.  Now it is the first day of summer and I am already seeing ads for holiday ornaments and end of year travel bargains!

The first day of summer, or the summer solstice, simply put is when the sun is at its highest position in the sky.  This marks the beginning of the summer season in the northern hemisphere and the beginning of winter in the southern hemisphere.  It can fall anywhere between June 20-22 and, in 2014, arrives at exactly 6:51 a.m. EDT on June 21, 2014.

Warm weather, longer days and balmy evenings mean a more casual and relaxed way of life for a few months.  We will be enjoying the evening with friends from Sweden that will most likely include a margarita or two.  And, of course, Iris is always willing to enjoy a summer nap in the shade.

How will you enjoy the summer this year?
