I LOVE all of the seasons!
I celebrate them all!

Here's what I like about summer -

No school!  I know, I haven't been in school for 25 years, but I don't like hounding my kids about papers and tests anymore than they like me hounding them.

Going outside in the coolness of morning to get the paper and being the ONLY one outside


Food on the grill

Frozen Lemonade


The neighborhood pool (I've been there ONCE so far, but that beats last year's record of 0)

Sitting on the patio in the evening


Green grass

Leaves rustling in the breeze

Crickets at night



Coleslaw, Potato Salad, Baked Beans - so much of my life revolves around food!

A slower schedule - bahahaha.  Good one!  That's funny!

It all sounds great! I kind of fool myself into thinking that summer will be more relaxing every year.

Yes! Love summer! Cool grass under my feet and BBQ with friends!

I love how the garden in my yard blooms different colors and flowers all summer long.

And every week there is something new going on. I am almost sad to get excited for the wedding, as when the day comes, summer will be over.

I don't get out to the neighborhood pool much either. I think it has something to do with wearing a bathing suit in public.

I'd have to agree with the Cherries and Peaches too!!!!!!! I love summertime fruit!

I love blowing bubbles with chick outside.
Chasing the most energetic and tiny puppy on earth.
Constructing superheros and villains and knexs with Thor.
Reading a fantastic book.
Relocating to the country for a year (I'm scaring myself because I am really looking forward to our 12-18 months in Tiny Town.)
Finally catching up with my friends and reading what they've been up to.

I've missed you.

I used to love the dump runs as a kid. We had so much fun!
