I love summer. Many people in Texas hate it here during the summer because it gets so hot. While the hot gets uncomfortable sometimes I like being cold even less than being too hot. Just north of Dallas is the farthest north I’ve ever lived in my life. I am very warm blooded! June has rolled around after winter trying to get in a couple late season cool spells. Weather has warmed and there’s a comforting rhythm going on about my home. I’m working and relaxing and enjoying lots of sunshine. I thought I’s share a few of my favorite things to do during the summer. Wear flip flops. This is a high ranking item. Flips flops go with anything and everything. You can wear them to the store and to church. They get put on for dinner out and errands. I own about 20 pair! No two are alike either. I have favorites, they have bling on them and some I work in the yard in…basic and plain. I have mostly flat ones but do own at least one pair that have about a 2″ sole. My favorites are from a company called Yellow Box. They make my feet and toes happy. I like flip flops so much I made a very bright flip flop wreath to hang on my door. It makes me happy every time I drive up my driveway.
I like summer flowers. All colors and shades. I love the pinks and purples, the yellows and blues. The remind me of a box of crayons they have such a range of colors.
I like sitting on my front porch with something cool to drink and talking to the neighbors (before the mosquitoes come to annoy me.) I have learned to tolerate Texas mosquitoes because they’re not near as ferocious as the ones I grew up with in Louisiana. I spend most of the good weather in my backyard though. I can sit at the table and “work” or read a book on my magic porch swing. I don’t do that very often because the swing makes me fall asleep! I can grill outside or jump in the pool. I can have friends over to laugh and chat and enjoy our time together. There’s yard work (yes I like that too) and enjoying the fruits of those labors. There are so many many things to love about the activities, sights and smells of warm weather.
I’ve shared a few of mine and I hope you’ll share some of yours with me in a layout on our fan page!
