Not of the boy meets girl variety but rather a tribute to my favorite season of the year.
I’m one of those perpetually cold people.
I layer my clothes and have a sweater or sweatshirt within arm’s reach 9 out of 12 months of the year.
I’m one of those “I’d rather be hot than cold” people and can’t wait to shed my winter clothes.
I love the smells of summer - peonies and roses, freshly cut grass, the scent of the moist air before a storm, sidewalks after a summer rain, neighborhood barbecues...
And so hooray for 2 ½ work free months and
...not having to make 4 lunches 5 mornings a week
...not having to iron uniforms
...not having to get to bed at a reasonable time
...the warmth of the sun on my bare arms
...morning coffee on my back deck
...collecting seashells on the beach
...hanging clothes outside on the clothesline (love that fresh air smell)
...early evening leisurely walks with my youngest daughter
...beer on a Tuesday or Wednesday night or any other night for that matter
...car rides where the only destination is an icecream stand
...time to write, read, dream, laugh, garden...
What do you love about summer?
