give way

after hours
that man
i've realized that i spend most of my winter in a hibernation of sorts. when summer gets here, my days get longer and longer, and give way to night. once all the tasks of life are dealt with, i often find myself shuffling out to the porch at 10:45 or so. it feels so good to just sit and listen to the crickets, watch fireflies, and have a popsicle. it's even better when david joins me. sometimes we giggle. well. ok. i do the giggling, he just laughs a bit. sometimes we process some bit of our day. but mostly it just feels good. and when we finally stretch out our old bones and shuffle back inside, the clock winks at me, 12:07, and i don't even miss the extra sleep.

the thought of you and david eating late night popsicles on the porch fills me with delight.

I love you, Hannah Huffman.

And I'd give all my limbs to be on that porch with you right now. Might be hard to eat that popsicle, but I'm committed.

I feel the same way - I can stay up much later in the summer time - and not miss the sleep but in the winter I feel like I have to go to bed once it gets dark.

this right here looks like heaven to me! me and the hubby have developed an addiction to cloudy lemonade popsicles, and it seems that one is never enough :0d
