A Blissful Summer

1 Comment

“Every summer has it’s own story.” ~ Unknown

My narrative for a blissful summer:

  • Three months of grass tickling my toes
  • Lots of in the water time (lake, ocean, pool, pond or river…doesn’t matter as long as its refreshing!)
  • Fire in the barbie. Cook-outs all summer.
  • Freshest fruits and veggies available.
  • Abundant outdoors time – No Excuses!
  • Local farmers markets, fairs, outdoor concerts, arts and cultural activities.
  • A windfall of creative ideas and energy.
  • A trip away from all things familar. Short excursions work.  Doesn’t have to be to timbuktoo!
  • Time enough to do a whole lot of nothing (“not one earthly thing,” as my Mom says).
  • Good summer reads on any platform (hardback, paperback, e-book or audio).
  • Visits to those people I don’t see often enough.
  • A little child’s play – running in the rain, jumping rope, building sandcastles, catching lightning bugs, blowing bubbles, for example.
  • Blue skies, sunshine
  • Counting my blessings….one by one and being thankful summer is here.
