Like Oil and Water


It NEVER looks so peaceful!!

Let’s face it…

After starting this blog entry three different times, I have to to admit, I’m not a summer person. I don’t like the heat. I’m not a fan of humidity.

My stories don’t often include The Beach…or boats, towels, pails, or pina coladas.

Once in a great while. That’s it for me. Like my story, Dark Summer, which takes place in Belize, during the late summer months. And also, Flashback, which is an early summer story set on the banks of North Carolina.

Give me a cozy cabin story, anyday. A hike through high altitudes when the rest of the country is sweltering, but I am enjoying wonderful 70 degree air. That’s me….

I remember being a kid and visiting Lake Michigan, during the winter months. Snow banks, ice, and COLD wind, blowing off the water.

Sybils_Cabin_Winter_Rear_2There are many things to like about summer, and I can enjoy a summer day just as much if not more than a winter day [when my husband’s with me], but over all, I’m a fall/winter kind-of-gal.

  1. I’m not a fan of sand or ocean swimming…but I’d probably take the sun over the snow any day! (now the idea of a cabin in the woods on a star filled night…okay, THAT I’d like!)

  2. I definitely like the heat better than snow, but maybe that ‘s because it’s pretty for about ten minutes in Oklahoma – then it turns into slush and mud. : /

    I’m probably one of “those” kind of people who will retire in FL. LOL

    The older I get, the less I enjoy colder weather. I live in the mountains though, so the snow and ice tend to linger here.

    You like what you like. 🙂 I love the photos you picked out. Both scenes look very inviting. Great settings for a story.

  6. Beach or cabin in the mountains? I’d probably go for the cabin. I love me some beach time…but I’d be perfectly content to lose myself up in a cabin on a mountain. Any. Day.
