Enjoying summer

Watched the Pliedes meteor shower from our back porch.

Swung lazily in a hammock.

Went swimming in a lake.

Picked blueberries.

Ate so much zucchini I felt green. Then, I ate some more.

Read three romances, one right after the other.

Let ice cream drip down my wrist from a chocolate cone.

Walked barefoot in the grass.

Watched butterflies dance.

Excuse me? What kind of blog post is this? A summertime blog post, of course. Or really, it's a list of some of the things I've done this past week.

What have you been up to? Have you done any of the things I've done? Or have you been enjoying other summertime "stuff"? I'm curious. I want to know.

You see, I love summer, and all the laid-back summertime activities that come with the sultry, steamy days and nights of the season. Just thought I'd take a minute and share what I've been doing with you. And did you notice, the list doesn't have "wrote..." on it? Yeah, I've been slacking!

But yesterday I saw two Indigo Buntings! And a couple of hummingbirds! And I ate strawberries hot from the strawberry patch. Writing will keep. The birds and berries won't.

Hope you're enjoying the summer, too. Remember, soon the flowers will be covered by snow and snow just doesn't smell as lovely as lilies...
