I like making lists, so in honor of the new season, I’m sharing my list of summer fun and beauty between the bookends of Memorial Day and Labor Day. Take a look and see what you would add.
Sunshine starts early and stretches long into the evening
Temperatures so hot your glasses steam up, your ice cream melts, your legs stick to the car seat
Morning walks before the sun gets too high
Morning music from the birds
Sitting in the sun
Sitting in the shade
Sunscreen, sunglasses, sunburn
Tee shirts and shorts
Flip flops and sandals
Vacations and staycations
The ocean, the river, the lake, the pool
Berries: straw, blue, black, and rasp-
Sunflowers, daisies, hydrangeas, and more
Parades and fireworks
Hot dogs and hamburgers
Lemonade, watermelon, popsicles
On the deck with friends from dusk til dark
So very hot
A drought or a drenching
The color of the season: green
Butterflies and fireflies
Pesky pests, bug spray
Then, the countdown—
July gives way to August
Back to school!
Labor Day and
See ya next year.
