Thursday 13 Summer Things

Summer seems to have gone by at the speed of light this year with many summertime activities still undone.

Here are 13 ways I know its summer-

  1. Vacation- a trip to somewhere I've never been before.

  2. Visits to the Farmers Market.

  3. The annual trip to Gene's Root Beer stand.

  4. Several trips to Ivanhoes.

  5. Fresh garden vegetables

  6. Walking the dog at the park.

  7. The smell of swimming pool chlorine and suntan lotion.

  8. Fourth of July cookout and fireworks.

  9. Doing things outside instead of inside (eating, reading, painting my toes).

  10. Attending summer festivals.

  11. Going to the State Fair.
  12. Hiking at a State Park.
  13. Driving everywhere with the windows down and the sunroof open.

Enjoyable list! It could be retitled 'Things I love about living in Southern California' ... though we have no Gene's Root Beer Stand, our local 'fairs' are in July and September, and the BEACH is where I smell 'suntan lotion' since it's a block and a half away from home.
Hugs and blessings,

Ain't summer grand! Oops, I mean isn't. Shhh. Don't tell my daughter the English teacher. I love all those things about summer. It's a great list!

Come on by my place and learn a little about Michigan.

I love all these things about summer. I'll be sad to see it go. I'm not looking forward to snow again. Yuck! Happy TT.

I must say that #13 is my favorite :) It also reminds me so much of summer here too.

OOo, a root beer stand sounds cool!

I agree, summer is going much too quickly!

Thanks for stopping by!

This summer has gone really fast!

I love root beer. I have to do decaf and am not real crazy about the clear sodas, so drive-throughs that sell root beer get a lot of my business in the summer.

Thanks for visiting my T13!
