Saturday, I dashed into the fabric store to pick up some buttons. My brisk pace, slowed ever so slightly as I saw some employees stocking the shelves with autumnal decor and whatnot’s. My step faltered for the briefest of moments. I got a giddy feeling in my stomach. I continued on. The calendar says it is July 8th and I am still picking up burnt ends and spent bottle rockets from my backyard, there is NO WAY that I can be politically correct and voice my opinion that Fall is my all time favorite season.
In my attempt to shake off the Negative Nellie attitude, I am listing 17 things I like about my fourth favorite season, summer.
cross stitching outdoors
star fish hanging from our dining room light
wearing loafers with no socks
walking on the beach
soaking up sunshine
This is probably where I should type, catching fire flies. However, when living in Oklahoma, spying a fire fly, I climbed up on a short brick wall, reached out to grab it to show the boys. At that exact moment, I grabbed the post, my ring caught on a rusty nail…………….fill in the blank……………..damaged finger, bent ring…missed by “this much” capturing the elusive bright fly.
Here’s to a happy, carefree summer day of pure goodness. If I string enough happy days together, the end result is a happy, carefree spectacular summer. Fingers crossed.
