We’ve had four days in a row of sunshine, blue skies, and heat. Pinch me. I think I must be dreaming. I don’t want to get my hopes up too high, but summer, quite possibly, has made its entrance out here in the Northwest. I’m afraid to visit weather dot com for fear that rain will be in the 10 day forecast. I’d rather live in ignorance and believe that warm days are here for the long haul.
I’m in a skipping, jumping, life-is-wonderful kind of mood too! Sunshine is good for the soul. It burns off the dark, cloudy days and turns the doldrums into a far, distant memory. Yes. I’m high on vitamin D this morning. Can’t you tell?
In honor of our four days in a row of beautiful, sunny, summertime kind of weather, I quickly jotted down a few of my favorite summertime must-haves. Feel free to add any of your own summer favorites to my list too.
- Sunscreen SPF 50 (or more appropriately, Sun-paste – that stuff really works!)
- Strawberry Shortcake
- Sleeping in
- Starbucks Frappuccinos
- Sundresses and flip flops
- Sitting outside under the shade of a tree
- Summer reads
- Salads with fresh fruits and veggies
Have I forgotten anything?
Because I don’t want to miss out on any bit of this very beautiful day, I’m going to wrap this up and get off of my computer. The tree outside my window, reflecting gold and yellow beams of sunlight from its leaves, keeps beckoning me to come outside and play.
And so…I’m off to soak in another beautiful summer day!
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!
