At the Top of the List of Things to be Grateful for: Splashing in a Pond

Has it EVER been this hot?

Maybe maybe not.

But I know one thing for sure. I've never appreciated the pond as much as this morning. Because of all the rain this summer, the pond is pretty full (usually it's shriveled into a mud puddle by this point in the summer.)

Not today.

Splashing in that cool water -- which feels like it's clean enough to drink -- was just heavenly. It made me feel as grateful as I could be.

If you are hot, and you happen to be passing through Spencertown, N.Y., and you want to jump into my pond, you are welcome. Just email me for directions, and bring your own towel. My house is the one with the blue tree in front.
