Summer just started and * gasp * it’s already scheduled … I have too many vacation hours and must use “it or lose it” (not happening). Not a terrible problem to have I know so, for that reason, I’m booking off soon to enjoy a summer that looks like this:
“It’s a smile, it’s a kiss, it’s a sip of wine … it’s summertime!” ― Kenny Chesney
What’s your summer looking like?

Bratwurst and burgers sizzling on the grill.
Spring rains a-coming.
Freshly cut hay. Puppy breath.
Soon? Lilacs in bloom.
Homemade salsa with cilantro and sweet onion.
Bud Light Lime and a Bells Oberon.
Corn on the cob… boiling in a pot.
Suntan lotion & Aloe Vera gel.
It was 84 F here in West Michigan today which meant that we “grilled out.” Yum!! I don’t care what we make it’s just always better on the grill. The temps are going back down to the 50s tomorrow; so what I say! We’ll take it. When you live in a cantankerous climate, you take what you get.
Summer is still a long ways off but …but being outside in the sunshine with delicious smells filling our neighborhood, it felt like summer is in sight.
What smells evoke summer to you?
