I can’t believe it’s already June and we’re into beach month! Before you know it, we’ll be heading into the waning half of the year. My mother used to tell me when I was little that as I grew older, time would seem to go faster. And she was right. It seems like I just blinked and we went from my birthday in January to the middle of the year.
Now, I’m not a sun bunny, but I do love the flowers and the spreading leaves, and being able to sit outside after dusk and watched the stars. Here, it often rains well into June. But it’s still summer, and I always feel like time slows down just a little bit during the summer months.
I’m not much for outdoor activities, especially with my allergies and histamine intolerance, but I love watching the stars, and going for drives in the country, and sitting out by lakes or rivers, or the ocean. The water calms me. I also love getting together with friends for cookouts, and the profusion of color that spreads across the land.
So, what do you love about summer? What are your favorite activities? Have they changed much since you were a child?
