我愛夏日長 / Summer Time ... and the Living is Easy


Just as people are grumbling about the spring that never was, Environment Canada announces a high of 30 degrees C for tomorrow. This is good news for the locals as the weather has been mostly cool for the last three months, with night-time lows sometimes dipping into the single digit. People living in the Great White North do like the fact that we have four distinct seasons with very different sceneries. However, we do feel cheated if there is no respite from the long cold winter. So, here is to warmer weather with a folk song from the deep south ...

Summer Time

Summer time, and the livin' is easy.
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high.
Oh, yo' daddy's rich,
An' yo' mama's good-looking,
So hush little baby, don't you cry.

One of these mornin's, you goin' rise up singin'.
Then you'll spread yo' wings an' you'll take the sky.
But till that mornin', there's nothin' gonna harm you,
With yo' Daddy and Mammy, standin' by.

I'll easily lose patience during hot weather. But then, the weather here today is so good. Light blue sky (not so blue though) with some clouds. I can see quite a clear view of the HK island which has been missing during the past few days. Breezes keep blowing through the window. So comfy!! Oh by the way, today is Buddha's birthday holiday. Good to have a break in the mid of the week. ^_^

Yes, yesterday is public holiday, although very hot but made this week pass easier, i am happy for that.

The picture is very beautiful.

Xiao Zhu: I have not been back to HK for so long. It's hard for me to even imagine what I might see across the harbour from where I used to live. Just like you, I always enjoyed the warm breeze caressing my face on a nice summer day.

Well, whether it's Buddha's birthday or that of Queen Victoria, we both had a holiday off last week :) Yeah !!!
