I think summer might be back again already. It's been high twenties for the last few days and really humid. The beautiful weather we've had for the last few months has been really deceiving. I forgot how brutal a tropical summer can be. I'm already feeling it. There's always pros and cons to
PRO -Lalie being able to wear minimal clothing, revealing her delicious milky skin and chubby folds (as seen above).
CON- Me having to wear minimal clothing, revealing a neglected complexion and chubby folds (shan't be seen anywhere on this blog).
PRO - Swimming! At the pool. At the beach. Grandma's and Nana's house, too!
CON - Torrential rain. Tonnes of it. Weeks and weeks of it. Soggy mess = confined indoors.
PRO - Thunderstorms. Enormous, grumbling, cracking, thrilling displays of Nature's force. I love them. Will Lalie? Hmmm...
CON - Bugs, mosquitoes and other undesirables. Especially mosquitoes*. Useless, bloodsucking vermin who seem to love Lalie's delicate skin (carnage seen above). Poor darling.
PRO - Fruit. Delicious, local fruit. Sweet and juicy and cheap.
CON - Electricity bills. Full time air conditioning is absolutely essential during some months. Not Cheap.
PRO - Vintage rompers - yay, finally!
You'd think after a blogging break I'd have something more interesting than the weather to talk about. Apparently not. But Anna reckons everyone's doing it, So I don't feel so bad. I'll ride that bandwagon, too.
* Does anyone have any advice or recommendations for a safe, natural insect repellent for babies? You guys are good with advice. See that teething necklace? Was it your idea? Thank you.
