Spill Beans Plant City Florida Fresh Grounded Faith Annie F. Downs Laura Story Jennifer Rothschild

Are you an introvert or an extrovert? What do you do to unwind? What’s your favorite smell or sound?

These are just a few of the questions we were asked as we sat around the bistro table in Plant City, Florida at a Fresh Grounded Faith event.

Author and podcaster Annie F. Downs and singer-songwriter Laura Story were with me, and these women gave so much insight and inspiration when we spilled the beans.

My Favorite Sound of Summer

I have waited all summer for the cicadas to start doing their thing! Well, they’re noisy little critters tonight. It is my favorite sound of summer in the Ozarks. I wish I could capture their songs and post it right here. But cicadas may annoy you.

Summer night

I mentioned something on Facebook about the start of cicada season, and folks from all around told me so much about them! I had no idea that mentioning the cicada would create such interest. I personally had insomnia because I stayed up that night learning all about them. For example, did you know that the cicada can live 17 years? Have you ever heard that once you hear the cicada, it will be 100 days until the first frost? Well, neither did I! Cicadas also live all over the world and are mentioned in the Bible. I have some very, very smart Facebook friends.

Question: Do you have a favorite sound of summer? Let us know what it is here.
