Summer Days, Summer Nights

I knew it was here yesterday when I opened my back door to let Gracie out.   There was that smell in the air that is so familiar when it's hazy, hot and humid. is here,  today being the first full day.  I love summer. It speaks of all things bright and beautiful.

Here in New England it is a short season,  winter being the longest.   That makes the enjoyment of it so special. You cannot waste even one day of it.   So many summer things on my list.  Such an urgency to slow down and take it all in.  Yet at the same time it has a relaxed,  lazy feel to it.   A time when I can set monkey mind to rest and go with the flow so much easier.   Oh yes,  there are still classes to take,  chores to be done, errands to run, but it summer I do them with a happy heart knowing at the end their might be an ice cream waiting for me. 

Here are a few of my favorite summer things:   Perhaps you can make a list of your own and while your at it, slow down and smell the air...


Top on my list : Maine lobster

Maine everything...we have a house there so we get to see the sea.


ice Cream

reading on the deck...reading anywhere and lots of it.

bubbles and playing with my Liam

fried clams

camp fires/ gooey smores

cooking on the grill

hazy,  hot and humid....bring it on

birds singing, babies in nests

photographing all of it,

less clothes, 


drive-in movies....we still have them in Maine

lazy afternoons with naps on the deck

sunsets over Long Lake

 My list  could go on and on but you get the point...more play less work.

Wherever your summer takes you,  be sure to look with new eye's at what is around you.  Spend time with those you love and really become engaged in what happens when your with your favorite people.   Hug more, argue less.   Sandels instead of shoes,   sunscreen.   Do it all.   Be safe and enjoy.
