The sweetness of summer. Deep breath. Isn't it grand? I am super busy. I have two jobs, a large family including children, step-children and grandchildren. None of that changes in the summer time, the schedule doesn't slow down much but there is something about my very being that just winds down. I seem to notice more. Food tastes better. I am up later because the sun doesn't set until way past my normal bed time. There is more time for walks, bike rides, and swimming in the river. No homework to worry about, clean clothes, or packed lunches. I feel more relaxed and alive.
I do love all the seasons but there is something fleeting and therefore sweet about summer time. From the moment it starts, there is the knowledge that it will be gone in a twinkling so one should enjoy every moment.
This is a list of my favorite SWEET things of summer:
- homemade strawberry rhubarb pie
- farmers market
- riding bikes
- huckleberry picking
- good books
- camp fires
- floating the river
- grilled vegetables and aioli
- star gazing
- the sound of the sea
- sleeping outside
I hope you are savoring the sweetness of life this summer and will share your ideas and inspirations with us.
