The weather today is very summer-like. Memorial Day is this Monday, which must mean summer is once again almost here.
There’s something special about the summer. Maybe it’s the carefree idea of spending time outdoors in the garden and backyard, at the beach or perhaps at a state park somewhere. It’s vacation time, even if you have to work during the summer.
At my house, the idea of school and schedules winding down is very welcome. Summer means not as much rushing to get to lacrosse or scouts. It means at the end of a workday, taking time to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air. It means swimming, grilling, and gardening and hopefully a chance to visit a new or favorite location.
It also means fresh vegetables from the garden and the local farmers markets. Nothing is as tasty as a freshly picked tomato or corn on the cob. Yes, summer is a wonderful time of the year.
