A real summer treat

You guys. After sweltering for months in ungodly temperatures and humidity, the unthinkable finally happened. It has FINALLY cooled off.

Yesterday morning some rains showers moved through…

This morning, I was actually cold when I went outside. It was amazing.

Weekend Shows & Movies

It’s been too hot to do much of anything outdoors the past few weeks, and trying to find unique (air-conditioned) things to do on a weekend, in the summer, can be a bit of a challenge.

Yet, somehow we discovered a few gems.

Bossier Parish Community College recently put on several performances of Neil Simon’s Barefoot in the Park. A friend and I went to a Sunday matinee and LOVED it. Laugh out loud funny. We were so impressed with the students’ performances, and were so glad we went.

Then this weekend, another friend and I went to see The Way Way Back at The Robinson Film Center. It completely exceeded all expectations, and was very sweet, funny, and heart-warming. The Robinson always manages to pleasantly surprise me with films I wouldn’t normally seek out.

What summer films have you seen this summer? And, any good beach reads? I really enjoyed this book, with it’s dark plot twist: The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls.
