Summertime.....and the living is easy!

I always get a slight feeling of melancholy as summer comes to an end, as summer is my favorite season of all. Winter drags on in my part of the world for what tends to seem like an eternity, and yet summer is here and gone in the blink of an eye.

Here are the things that I like best about summer:

-Not wearing socks! I live in sandals when I am out of the house, and bare my feet inside. My feet havent seen a sock in months!

-The long hours of daylight, enabling us to enjoy activities outside longer in the evening, and the early sunrise makes getting up a whole lot easier than the dark mornings of winter.

-The ease of leaving home without having to don boots, coats, hats, scarves and mitts.

-Summer vacation, soaking up the sunshine on a beach by the ocean or a lake.

-Relaxing out on the patio with a nice glass of wine.

-Eating meals "al fresco"!

-Summer sunsets

-Enjoying fresh vegetables and fruit from the farmers markets, especially, blueberries, peaches, lettuce, tomatoes, carrots and beets.

 -Driving on bare roads, and not having to be concerned about icy conditions, and blizzards.

-The sights and sounds of birds, bees dragonflies and butterflies. 

-Trees of green, and flowers blooming everywhere.

- And, last but not least.....sleeping at night with the windows open!

I could probably go on and on...but you get the idea!

What is your favorite season?

Sounds like you've had an amazing summer! I don't blame you for soaking in as much as you can!!!

Well, I would usually agree with you, but our summer has been awful--too hot and dry. My flowers are barely alive and I have lost a few as well. I've had to re-seed the lawn and it looks horrible. And we've spent the entire summer inside with the air conditioning on. Booooo!

I like autumn. I can't wait for cooler temperatures and maybe....just maybe...some rain.
