As an occasional Canadian, I like to mark the start of Summer with Victoria Day, because it gives us one more week of easy books, car dancing to with the windows rolled down and beach trips without the funny looks.
Happy Victoria Day!!!!
That means summer’s here! That also means that it’s raining on my parade in Oregon, because this map is 900% accurate for my region until August when it get’s mildly hot.
This is also why I like to close summer with the American Northwest end of summer weather- Halloween, but that’s beside the point.
Because it’s summer!
Time for shorter hours at work, cute skirts, fresh local vegetables, farmers markets during the week, happier coworkers, mini-cations on Thursday nights because it’s not dark at 5pm, eating on patios, festivals, and rain.
Rain. Because even if it’s the summer- it’s still Oregon.
And it’s only May.
What are you doing this summer? Tell me in the comments!
