It was my granddaughter’s 20th birthday celebration over the weekend. For everyone who was sure as soon as the calendar flipped to September that the heat would dissipate and we’d have crisp, autumn weather, they were wrong. We are getting cooler nights, but our days have been quite hot and sticky.
Saturday, party day, was rather warm. Also, very bright. It was afternoon and we were on the south side of the house (where the lawn is) and the sun was relentless. I’m not good in hot weather. I never really was and the older I get, the less I can tolerate it so we left fairly early, but not before I managed to get almost a hundred pictures!
It was a good party. For a bit of zing, there was a “bouncy house.” You’d be surprised at how many grownups find bouncing adds zing to their lives. I’m not a bouncer. I would bounce once, fall down, and have to be extracted. But I think I captured the essence of party and zing.
