Sweet Summertime

Warm weather is not always my cup of tea, but there are plenty of summer-y things that make up for the temperatures. For example . . .

fireflies lighting up the surrounding fields at night,

sweet watermelons, {and fond memories of} juicy messes and sticky fingers,

a large patch of Black-Eyed Susans,

campfires at night, while roasting marshmallows and sharing stories,

buzzing bumble bees,

walking on sandy beaches and feeling the sand between my toes, and

stunning sunsets that fill me with awe of our Creator.

Those are just a few of the things that remind me of summer, and make me thankful for this warm season. What are your favorite things about summer?

    Oh, there are so many enjoyable things about summer! The warm weather, juicy fruits, picking wildflowers, taking photographs outdoors, working on homemaking projects, the bright blue sky…the list could go on and on! I recently posted a “summer” post of photos of some of my favorite summertime things.

    Blessings, dear friend!

    I love your site! It brings me joy. Thank you for that. My favorite things are enjoying my kids outside! Planting our garden and watching it grow; very rewarding. Tending to my flowers. Taking boat rides on our fantastic lake with my husband and kids! Going Camping! Going to the Farmers Market. Just absorbing all that our Lord has made on this earth! His beauty is so plentiful!

    Thank you for reminding us about how lovely the summer season is–in Alabama, it’s hard sometimes to keep those things in mind while enduring the heat! My favorite things about summer are the trips to see out-of-town family, back-yard cookouts, and (funny enough) yard-work!

    I did forget to mention that sadly, we do not get fireflies here in CA (at least the part of CA I live) but I have longed to see them ever since I was a little girl! *sigh*
    That is one thing I wish to see and Lord willing maybe sometime soon! :)

    Hmm, my favourite things about summer…
    …shucking corn while listening to the tree frogs
    …little drives through the country
    …impulsive trips to Gus’s ice cream parlor
    …acres and acres of blossoming trees and oscillating waves of corn and wheat
    …that first, relaxing step onto the warm beach sand
    …and so many more!
