‘Tis the season to drink sangria, not to be jolly/merry

18 Jul

Spotted: Christmas pins. Already.

In case you’ve forgotten, it’s July. It’s 400 degrees outside, and you can’t escape the sounds of the cicadas hissing in the trees. It’s the sound of heat. Presumably, it would reach you even if you were indoors. At your computer. On Pinterest.

Which is why I don’t understand why this sort of stuff keeps popping up. TOO SOON.

I WILL NOT HAVE THIS @(#*$. I will not have it.

A photo of a couple in black and white, kissing, framed by two coloured red and white candy canes that they're holding out, shaped like a heart.

Seriously?

Of course, the crochet community has gotten in on the season to be jolly already. They’ve taken on Pingu, one of my closest childhood imaginary friends.

A pin of pingu in a hat and scarf, a crochet version.Yes, it’s very cute. You know what? I don’t care. It’s too early to pin stuff onto a Christmas! board.

158 days until Christmas, people. 158. Now is the time to whip up some homemade sangria, drink it out of a mason jar from a distressed, antique Muskoka chair on your beach house deck/enchanted forest, and enjoy the summer while you can.

Help summer on Pinterest remain a mistletoe-free zone. Put your Christmas pins away.
