I love summer. This weekend will be all about summer things I love to do and plan to do.
*I'll be knitting mittens. How many pair? I don't know.
*Summer is for sitting on my screened porch.
*Nurse friend Maureen brought me a bag of her Auntie Mar's needles and such. I plan to have Fireman help me make shawl pins from these needles.
Auntie Mar's bag had a good little ruler and some stitch holders that are already in use.
*I plan to knit a pair of pink mittens from Auntie Mar's last stash and donate them in her honor.
*Vacationing is always part of our summers.
We are so blessed.
This year we head to the OUTER BANKS to enjoy Allison and pals for a week.
Channon had a hand in this!
We are renting her aunt's cottage.
I plan to see the wild horses and take a horse tour.
*This year will be different as I have begun to bike ride.
There will be few walks, but many rides.
Perhaps, Just perhaps, Fireman and I will do an organized ride.
Tomorrow is Bike the Drive, where the Lake Shore Drive is closed to automobiles for the event.
We are not doing Bike the Drive, but I do want to bike the lakefront this summer.
*I need a summer hat. I just want a baseball cap that doesn't look goofy on me. I need sun protection.
*Summer is for Storms and I love them.
*Summer is for porch time with pals.
My nurse friend Helen, from Ireland came for a glass of wine on the porch last night. I so enjoy our friendship.
She has wisdom and clarity about my mom.
*My television watching goes way down in summer.
I catch the weather and sports but would prefer the radio.
*I love to cut the grass in the summertime.
*My roses are my focus this summer.
You'll be seeing lots of them, I hope.
*I like to play card games on the porch. Perhaps Izzy and Zach will indulge me.
*I would like to improve my putting this summer.
I never work on this part of golf and it is fun and easy at the driving range. I probably won't even play a round, but I will putt.
*Last for today:
Summer is for happy ....it is my first summer of retirement and I'm overjoyed.
What makes your summer happy?
