12 Things to Love About Summer

After my poor-sweaty-me post yesterday, I thought it would be a good idea to remind myself of all the things I love about summer. I made a similar list way back in 2009, and many of these items will be the same, but I thought it would be a good refresher. Especially if this season ends up being more than a couple months this year!

12 Things to Love About Summer:

  1. cold showers
  2. fresh tomatoes with fresh herbs (and endless summer salads)
  3. that wonderful coconut sunscreen scent (reminded me of Christie Lake when I first put it on this year)
  4. silky skirts against bare legs
  5. the fresh breeze through an open window (or better: at the waterfront)
  6. sitting outside to read, enjoy my coffee or while Pat barbecues
  7. everything green and flowering
  8. letting my hair air-dry (and having it take less than an hour to be completely dry)
  9. feeling the grass between my toes 
  10. swimming outside
  11. ice cream and popsicles
  12. hearing the birds chirping in the trees
Alright... I guess summer isn't all that bad. As long as it doesn't get much hotter than 25C - then I'll be a complaining ball of sweat once more!
