Summer is just around the corner. End of school. End of band/piano and sports (for us). An easier time of no schedules. No hurrying. It’s a time of relaxation. There’s just something about summer…..   “Summer, Summer, Summertime! Time to sit back and unwind….” Will Smith. You get me.

Below is a list of things that make me glad it’s summer time!

  • No schedules. We have no practices of any kind. Woo Hoo!
  • No school = No homework. YES!!
  • No setting the alarm clock. (I’m very lucky to be a SAHM.)
  • Swimming.
  • Red, White & Blue.
  • Shady trees & breezes.
  • Day trips.
  • Family vacation.
  • Late nights.
  • Lightning bugs.
  • A slower state of mind.
  • Cooking out on the grill (because hubs grills, momma does not).          
  • Fireworks. (Love the loud Boomers!)
  • Flip flops and shorts.
  • Sitting outside. (but thankful for AC on the inside!)
  • Picnics.
  • Corn on the Cob….Mmmmm, with LOTS-O  butter!!
  • Kids playing in the rain.
  • Thunderstorms (but not at bedtime!).
  • All around relaxing feeling.

Summer is my fave season. The hot beats out the cold. I try to complain a little less about hot weather because I always complain about the cold!! In PA, you can have more than one season in a week!!

Sit back, relax. Grab a cool beverage. And list some things that make you happy about summer. It’s a good time to look around and notice the little things. Just a little reminder. Slow down. Be happy.

Do you have happy things to add to the summer list? What would you share? I like the warmer weather… but do not like to sweat!! Ha!


Until next time….

    I agree with slowing down and relaxing, but I am a cold weather fanatic! Haha!

      You can take it slow in the cold too! Just pick some winter things! 🙂
