Summer lovin’

Summer lovin’, had me a blast. Summer lovin’ happened so fast. Geez, did it ever. Summer is flying by! Yesterday was the longest day of the year; and now the days will gradually get shorter as we steam toward the 4th of July. Doesn’t it feel like we just got out of school?

I love summertime. I love lazy evenings on the deck… watching lightning bugs, listening to the locust and tree frogs, spitting watermelon seeds over my neighbor’s fence. Oh, just kidding. We don’t do that. (Only sometimes.) I love going for a walk after it cools off. I love watering the flower beds in the dark in my PJ’s and bare feet, feeling that lush, cool summer grass between my toes.

I love waking up early and the sun already shining brightly.

I do not love the searing heat of my leather seats on bare legs after the car has been sitting in the baking sun. I have lost a few layers of skin that way.

I love when the good, sweet corn shows up in the grocery store and the roadside stands. Pretty soon it will be time for dinners of corn on the cob and sliced tomatoes. Well, at least for me. My boys will likely add a steak.

It’s such a lovely season, and it passes too quickly every year. I pray each of you is enjoying every moment and making lots of happy memories.
