Spring’s come late to Michigan; we had snow as recently as two weeks ago. Not surprisingly, everyone around here is thinking ahead to summer.
Asked, “what’s on your summer list?” I found my list rolling off my tongue as though I’d practiced it for days! (maybe some of that’s true).
Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy with me at the grill.
Hanging in the pool till I’m wrinkly and white; cherries, watermelon, corn on the cob and fresh summer peas.
Tigers baseball on the radio .. outside; play dates with the grand kids.
Summer gatherings, skirts, kitten heels and date nights … all under the light of a summer moon.
Lacy sweet peonies that take me back to Grandma’s garden.
Fresh peach cobblers and Texas Sheet cakes, just because.
The squeals of children filling the backyard.
A contented old dog reminding me to take my time in the sun, too.
That’s what I long for this summer.
What’s on your summer list?
Thanks to Jessie for the inspiration!
