What does Summer Solstice mean? Beyond that it is the longest day of the year, in terms of daylight, it means to me that I finally need to dig out the summer clothes!
That's right. I wear my winter clothes as long as possible. I scrape along in T-shirts and jeans and a pair of slip-on Clarks until I realize that ... it ... is ... HOT! Then I find that I can't wear my sandals (because my toes aren't polished and I'm just not that kind of a girl) and all my summer clothes are stored in the basement! Time to swap out the clothes.
It's a bit of a task. I have to look through the light clothes in my old childhood dresser in the basement, see what is viable and then lug them all up 2 flights of stairs to our bedroom. Because our bedroom has a cove ceiling and a big "pocket" over the staircase - the dresser has been built into the wall. Then sweaters, long-sleeved shirts and heavier pants get relocated back down in the basement. But I'm not complaining - I love our little old house, with its small rooms, sloped eaves ... and many, many stairs. At least I get my exercise!
