Summer is Here

Officially summer doesn’t arrive until June 21 but unofficially it’s here.

I am finally warm. I can go outside and feel the heat of the sun seeping through my skin and right into my bones. I feel completely relaxed, flittering from one activity to another – going high on the swings, flipping over on the monkey bars, watching my son play in his new mini pool, going for a walk and throwing stones in the lake.

We are eating watermelon and spraying bugs with the hose. We are planting our vegetable garden and hanging clothes on the line. We are watching robins build nests and orioles and hummingbirds emptying our feeders.

I am counting down the days until summer driving season and weekends full of fun plans.

Welcome warm weather.

Oh I so love the warm weather. As you said just the simplicity of feeling the warm sun on my bare skin is enough to put a smile on my face.

I agree that summer has arrived early, I just hope it's not also going to leave early too! Feeling the sun heat through to your bones is so wonderful, it's like a warm bath.

Have a lovely summer,
Jade
