BEARS ENJOYING THE SUMMER, EATING DANDELIONS ** Pat Costello Photo
I am back to work today after having four, long, glorious, sun filled days off.What a treat that was!! I went for early morning long walks every day, I gardened, spent quality time with the animals, I mowed, I cleaned the house, prepared for a BBQ we had Saturday night and I laid in my lawn chair and read.I haven’t heard the official temperature yet but it was slated to be in the mid 80’s.No matter the temperature, it was HOT!! I even managed not to get burned.One thing I’ve discovered it sun tanning is a whole different ball game than it was when I was younger.Then I’d slather on the baby oil or whatever other sun tan enhancing cream I had, I’d have a squirt bottle of cold water nearby and I’d lay out for HOURS on end.It didn’t matter if I was on the verge of passing out, I refused to miss 5 minutes of sun.Now it’s all about the sun screen.And breaks inside.And sitting in the shade occasionally.The perfect solution is having my upper body in the shade and my lower body in full sun.It was a little bit of heaven right here in Juneau, Alaska.
