The Joys of Summer

Every season brings special gifts to our lives.

Now that summer is in full boom, I think of all it has to offer and feel immense gratitude.

Here are some things I love about summer:


- Sun

- Farmers markets

- Fresh, juicy tomatoes


- Bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches

 - Parades


- Day trips

- Longer trips

- Ice cream

- "Lobstah"

- Freedom from monotony

- Iced hibiscus tea

- Swimming

- Suntanning

- Vacationing house guests

- Flowers, herbs and fresh fruits and veggies 


- The ocean

- Blue skies and white, fluffy clouds

- Kids laughing under the sprinkler


- Outdoor concerts

- Steak on the grill and sweet corn on the cob

- Freedom from intense scheduling

CAN YOU TELL US A COUPLE OF THINGS YOU LOVE ABOUT SUMMER?

I love the heat!warm sunshine making lots of vitamin D .I love getting in the pool to feel free as a bird. I love the Berkshires and passing by the Lake with Mt. greylock in the backdrop! I adore seeing flowers all over, going to the open air markets, plays, a lot of entertainment . Everything is alive!!!!!!
