It’s Summer

Happy summer solstice!

The past few days, the weather has been ideal here in the city of brotherly love.  Highs in the 80s.  Not too humid.  Just right.  That may all change in the blink of an eye, so I thought I should go out after work and enjoy it.

But I didn’t.

Instead, I ran errands.  Went to the wholesale big box warehouse to get fixings for a salad I’m taking to a crab boil tomorrow.  Swept floors at home.  I did get the new CDs from J. Cole and Kanye.  And a mediocre milkshake.

One of the best things about summer is the DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince classic, Summertime.  This song always makes me grin from ear to ear.  The lyrics are still relevant needing a break from all the out-of-control poppin’ songs, nostalgia sparked by summer scents, maximum frontin’.  Yes I said frontin’.  And now that I live in Philly, it feels a little more special that I have been to the Plateau and recognize sights from the video.

So on this official start to the summer, enjoy my very favorite song of the season.
