It’s officially summer – I saw my first lightning bug and the ceiling fans are on 24/7. My mind is turning to thoughts of fireworks, bike rides to the pool and Coppertone.
What are you summer signals, and how are you spending your summer?
This year, summer is particularly precious to me. The past winter in the Midwest (and worldwide, I think) was brutal. I made a promise to myself that once the winter chill was but a distant memory, that I would engage all of my senses and dive into summer.
I am doing all I can to keep to this promise. In the past week….
I have purchased two boxes of Popsicles – all red. I just finished one. I have the stained lips and popsicle stick to prove it.
I have enjoyed a bonfire in my fire pit. It lasted for 30 minutes, because a terrific summer storm came through.
I took a 15 mile bike ride and had a roadside picnic yesterday.
I went for a 2-hour scooter ride (with helmet), and stopped at the farmers’ market.
I gave up on growing my hair and cut it short, because it’s too humid.
I have compiled a “mix tape” of summer songs. I will now share them with you!
1. Beach Baby
2. Summer Breeze (this one goes out to my sister Ann for the 6,000 times I listened to this while she was in college).
3. Lovely Day
There’s one more really important thing on my list… I’m about to begin my summer program, Building A Powerful Vision’s “Summer School For Your Hopes and Dreams”. It’s a chance to do some creative and strategic thinking about creating a life you love. If you would like to learn more, visit: http://tessdenton.com/summer_school.php. There’s room for one or two more in the class, if this is your summer to focus on you! We begin on 6/25, and I’m thinking of adding a second start date, so come on by and check it out!
However you make your summer sizzle, and enj0y the long days and lazy nights…
As always, I welcome your comments, and make it a great week!
