On this, the last day of May, it was 95 degrees. Hello, summer. I'm not sure what came over us today, but the children and I went for a neighborhood walk at 3:30 this afternoon in the sticky, sweltering heat. Seeking some mid-excursion shade, we ducked into the shadow of a very large butterfly bush that was alive with the sound of humming bees. The bees didn't seem to mind the heat. I wish I were a bee.
