Sunday is the Solstice? My dh and I were trying to figure it out a couple days ago. None of our calenders said.

Adelle Laudan said...

Kewl list. Summer to me is starting each day on the deck with my coffee. I miss this the most during the long winter months.
Thanks for a great list. Happy T13!

Janice said...

Happy Solstice!

I keep thinking Barbecue, and I like my with meat with grilled veggies.

Happy TT.

Shelley Munro said...

Sounds good to me. Another thing - summer is warm! It certainly isn't here in NZ. :)

Ella Drake said...

I wish summer meant sleeping in.
:)
It means long drives & visiting family & bathing suits.

Loved your list.
If only the weather here would cooperate.

CountryDew said...

Great list and wonderful idea for a TT. This summer seems to be the "year of the monsoon" at least where we live ...

Stephanie Adkins said...

Great list. I love summertime (except for the heat and humidity). Happy Thursday! *hugs*

Summer is a welcome break from school. I love fireflies.
Happy T13!

Jennifer McKenzie said...

Definitely camping.

PopArtDiva said...

Summer - fresh mown grass, chigger bites, baseball and the smell of Coppertone!

My TT is the opposite of my usual waxing nostalgic over the past, this time I posted 13 Things I DIDN'T like about "the good old days"

Great list and happy Solstice!

Summer to me is a chance to shake the mildew off, scrap the moss of my shoulders and finally...see some sunlight!

Heather said...

Alice - Yes, according to my calendar, Summer arrives this Sunday. Happy Solstice!

Adelle - Oooh...sounds like a wonderful way to start the day!

Janice - Hehe...I'm actually having BBQ chicken with some mixed veggies for dinner tonight. Happy Solstice!

Shelley - Sorry! It's finally warming up here to more summer-like...80F and humid today.

Ella - Sleeping in is always nice. Long drives...not so much. I hope you enjoy the destinations if not the journeys!

Heather said...

Harriet - Thank you. I hope your weather starts to warm up as ours is!

CountryDew - We've had a lot of rain here, too, but thankfully not the flooding of last summer. Finally starting to warm up, though!

Stephanie - Yes, heat and humidity can certainly get to you. I'm especially feeling the latter today.

Jamie - Fireflies definitely win out over school! ;)

Jennifer - I only wish I could do as much camping as I used to. I haven't actually been in a couple years. :(

Heather said...

PopArtDiva - I used to love the smell of fresh mown grass when I was younger. Now I'm allergic. :(

Beati - Thank you!

Elise - While the heat and humidity can get to me, the not being cold is always a plus! Happy summer!

Paige - Thank you!

Debra - LOL...sunlight can be a good thing. Enjoy!

AD - Slurp away! *BG*
