This summer in the Deep South has been horrendous! We have broken a record for the most days of temps over 100 degrees. But for the last several days, with the hurricane season in full swing, we have had a fantastic reprieve from the scorching heat!
Yesterday, we woke up to a lovely drizzling rain and clouds covering the sky. Considering the fact that the sun has been beating down on us for the last three months non-stop with a vengeance, the rain and clouds were a welcome sight! This morning, the rain was still coming down slowly but steadily. But by mid-morning, it had stopped and been replaced by a fantastic breeze! The temperatures were in the mid-70's, and the day shaped up to be quite beautiful!
So my hubby broke out the hammock that he picked up a few weeks ago at a garage sale for TWO DOLLARS, and hung it outside between two perfect trees! We headed outside with the kids and just enjoyed some family time in the hammock. We all enjoyed it so much, because we have been cooped up inside for much of the summer due to the heat, and especially the last few days while the kids had a stomach virus. We all needed to get out and enjoy some fresh air. I was so thankful that God gave us such a beautiful, cloudy, breezy, cool, amazing day to enjoy!
