A Spring day by the sea…
Summer restaurants are open again, and it’s time to head to the seaside to enjoy the warm sunshine, feel the gentle sea breeze on your face, and listen to the sound of waves hitting the shore…
I think Mother Nature didn’t get the memo. I mean, she wouldn’t get me totally drenched on purpose, would she?
Actually, come to think of it, maybe she would. Between you and me, Mother Nature can be a real bitch. Besides, it’s not summer yet: we should expect some spring showers. Although, I have to say that Mother Nature’s idea of a spring shower is more like a deluge, but who am I to judge…
Anyway, that’s what I told my husband when he said it was finally summer. That it’s still spring, I mean, not what I think about Mother Nature… He insisted that summer starts when summer restaurants open. I said that in Finland summer starts on 1 June.
That’s because we know that Mother Nature is a bitch, and that she likes to play tricks on us, but we refuse to play her little guessing game and simply put it in the calendar. When summer starts, that is. That’s why Kesäkuu (= June in Finnish) has the word summer (= kesä) in it. Hah, take that Mother Nature! Your can’t confuse us!
But now it’s still May, and spring showers are OK. But let’s not go overboard with the whole shower thing, OK? So, Mother Nature, do we have a deal?
