Kisses, smiles and summertime

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?

Summer’s delights

Late sunsets & early sunrises, cherries ready, pool’s waiting; sandals, skirts & pedicures. Patio nights and baseball on the radio.

Fresh everything, kids on bikes, neighbors in yards, and conversations over fences. 

Summer storms, fireflies, windows open, fans on, followed by a/c blowing. 

Road trips:  music up, windows down. 

Lake visits,  pie and supper outside. 

The scents of charcoal and sunscreen; the sights of flip-flops and golfer’s tans.  

And vacation that starts later today!

Summer – she doesn’t stay long. 

What do you love most about summer?

Purposeful Nothingness

the 'Northern Lights' .. a must add to any bucket list

An absence of schedule.

Lack of obligation.

No particular place to be.

Naps.

No socks, no clocks, no dress code ….

Instead …. frogs singing me to sleep and songbirds chirping in my ear at daybreak, cups of really strong coffee… with cream. No skim, 2% or Flavoring … cream.  Old dog snoozing happily in the porch.   Too many books, watermelon for breakfast followed by a dip in the pool.  Sunscreen, steak marinating, and cherries from the fruit stand up the road.  Oscillating fans, screen doors, pool floaties and tan lines.  Skirts, heels, lip gloss and painted toes.   Linen shorts, baseball on the radio and supper on the patio … Tee times, bug spray, Tank tops, flip flops, and summer rains.   Grilling out with Roy Orbison, Elvis and Tom Petty at the water’s edge.   Windows open, daylight lingering…  and a firefly’s dance within reach.  Barbeque sauce, summer salads, and happy hour with friends.

Every year, the hubbs and I take 1 week off to do all of  the above …and this year?

It starts this afternoon. 🙂

How ’bout you? Any vacay plans on the horizon?
