Today is forecast to be almost 90 degrees! Hello, summer!

To celebrate, I'm carrying my new parasol, which is a blinding white umbrella with a frilly trim around the edge. It's awesome. As I was walking to the T this morning, I passed a woman pushing a little 1 year-old in a stroller. The kid exclaimed, "mumema!" and his mom said, "Yeah, it's an umbrella!" She promised they'd work on "parasol" next.

What are you doing to celebrate summer?
I'm feeling: chipperchipper

I had iced coffee! As a result, I'm (at all) coherent right now. :)

Also, flouncy skirt FTW.

Closing all the windows in the house. Yay super-insulation passive cooling!

I wish i had a smart reply, but here at 6,200 ft, where you grew up, we are just happy to see the sun and expecting highs today in the 50s. Revel in your heat for us...

Oooh. I want a parasol.

I have to find my sun hat, lest I die of heat stroke, and/or spend the summer looking like a tomato with hair.

I like this weather. It reminds me of home. Of course, when it came around at home, I tended to sit like a lump in front of the a/c.

I am celebrating by slathering on sunblock and then going out in the sun and trying to act normal, but really, I'm just going "holy gods, it's the sun!"

Um, I went to England? That doesn't seem right somehow. ;-)

Actually, since summer had arrived in full force here on Sunday, I went for a stroll in Hyde Park, along with the rest of the city.

Also, I will use my "summer" icon for this comment. ;-)

I think I'm probably going to take half the afternoon off and go ride my bike.

Ramped up slowly with breakfast and social media, have spent two hours clearing off accumulated papers from the dining room table and a couch, and will shortly be getting dressed and wandering around the city all afternoon.

Fortuitous days off ftw, and happy summer!

Today I had a long wait for my bus and I wished I had shade. I am sorely tempted to get a parasol.

I'm celebrating summer by stumbling around getting iced beverages (mm..iced herbal teas) and eating ice cream.

Strolling through heavy rain with my UMBRELLA on a chilly day. Saturday and Sunday I got snowed and hailed on. Summer?

Drivin' around in the Jeep with the top off, then heading home to sip dandelion wine & order tie-dye supplies to prepare for my first season vending at the farmers' market.
