Today's Word: Estivate
Estivate: (verb) To spend a hot or dry period in a prolonged state of torpor or dormancy.
That certainly describes my last three months. Well summer's ending today – I'll have none of that 'not until the fall solstice' nonsense, Summer ends with August – and the extreme heat seems to have broken last week. Actually spent some quality time out in the yard this weekend without requiring any sort of life-support devices, and biking is downright pleasant again. So local life seems to once more have made it through the summer estivation period. Soon we'll be off into the Fall camping season.
