We are lucky to be living in one of the most beautiful Countries in the world. We have got fresh air, warm sun and the sound of cicadas resonating in the air. You have to love it!
Just made me think of all the good things about Summer. The temperature has been soaring up over 26 with beautiful blue skies, with not a cloud to be seen.
One way to cool down is by sipping an icy cool drink or licking an icecream.
Then there is the smell of the barbecue - sizzling steaks and sausages, to go with a salad. The fresh fruit at this time is my favourite, a bowl of cherries, pineapple, nectarines,strawberries, and peaches ~ so delicous.
Hearing happy and excited people swimming in the water, is always a good sound.

One downfall of Summer is sunburn! which I unfortunately managed to do to myself the other day. It was 3.30 pm when we went to the beach to relax, reading a book on a beach towel. You would think the heat of the the rays sun would have mostly gone for the day, but oh no!

So here I am indoors today, doing things around the house.

Have a great weekend.

  5. Well... not summertime for months here yet....but just having it jump from -17C to +4C was a bonus!!

    I don't mind the changing of seasons.... the new snow is so pretty, but, the new grass will be great to see too..... even if it is a ways away....

    take care of that sunburn...
