Summertime-when the livin is easy

I love summer!

Especially if the temperature is above the 80 degree mark and the sun is shining!

I am a warm weather person and can not stand the cold! If I had my choice of places to live it would be somewhere like Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Where I could wear a bikini all day long (not that I look that good in a bikini) just that it's warm enough that I could wear one all day long and not have to cover up.
This weekend was perfect! the temperature on the thermometer hovered somewhere around 82 degrees and the sun was shining form the time I opened my eyes til it went down around 8:30 at night. If I knew I wouldn't have offended my neighbors or scarred any of the little children in the neighborhood, I would have put that bikini on and worn it all day long- it was that nice out. Alas (yes, I said Alas) I had places to go and people to see so I could not wear just a bikini even if I wanted to and had to settle for shorts and a tank top which covered the essentials yet kept me cool.

We had the kids and grand kids over for a cookout on Saturday afternoon and the grand kids ran through the sprinkler to cool off. Tempted as I was, I did not get out the bikini and join them.I sat on our deck and had cocktails with the adults which was just as enjoyable. I did take some pictures of them having a good time in the water and will share them with all of you.

Sunday we did some yard work that we had to do even though we really didn't want to and then sat on the deck and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon with a glass of wine.

We spent last weekend up at the cottage with family and that was so much fun that we can't wait to do it again. In August my family will spend a weekend up at the cottage celebrating my parents 60Th wedding anniversary. I am so looking forward to this as it will be the first time this many of my family has been at the cottage together. It will kind of be a last hurrah for the summer also before all the kids go back to school and those going to college head out on a new adventure.

This is why I love Summer- it may be the end of some things- but it is also the beginning of so many other things.

I hate being old and feeling like I can't put on the bikini and run through the sprinkler!
Have I told you how much I love your redo?
