So I am joining in on the fun that Long and Short Reviews have started which is Wednesday blogging challenge with some other romance writers and bloggers. Excited and a little nervous to see how i hold up with this but I’m in for the count. So it here goes…
Summer is my least favorite time of the year. I want to stay inside and hide but then again I live in the south and the humidity is ridiculous. It could be 80 degrees but feel like 100. So you can say I hate it as I am a cold type of person.
What does someone even do to beat the summer heat? Living in Alabama does not help at all to this annoyance I have with summer heat but there are tons of things to do to help alleviate this discomfort.
The summers are hot, everyone thinks of bathing suites, tan lines and sand. Sometimes I wish i was on the beach with the sand between my toes and maybe this year I will go. So soaking up some rays by the water. Be it at the pool, beach or somewhere on vacation. If i lived by the beach I would be there all the time and im not a beach person – I enjoy it for like a week then I want pine trees and mountains!!!!
That first dip of the toe or the quick submerssion into water – there is NOTHING like it especially when your sweating from just walking outside. Its like being hugged by a comforting force that wants to help you relax after working very hard… And the bonus is you get to workout by swimming or treading water. So that is a plus!
Summer makes everyone want to taste the delicious ice cream to help cool off. Of course after those calories wait 30 minute before getting back in the pool! So you can work off those calories and enjoy a relaxing dip while getting to snack on sweet treats such as ice cream, smoothies, and so much more!
My go to treats are ice cream pops made from fruit! We have a local place here called Suzy’s Pops that is located in this cool building that once was a former textile mill is the backdrop for this cultural complex of myriad artists & performers.
I’m a daughter to a super chocolate-aholic as she calls herself and I just am not that big into sweets. Maybe her sweet tooth was so strong mine didn’t develop? Of course my go to treat is fruits and ice cream!
A classic campfire with all my close friends while we enjoy a beer, a book or just each others time. Of course we can not forget about the classic campfire treat, Smores. The crackle of the fire, the crisp night air and all the laughter. It is heart warming and I do this every year with friends. This year will be a little different but that is the fun of watching us all grow and change over the years.
The way the air whisk around you and how you can forget what time it is by just enjoying life. I remember driving out to a local bridge and parking under it with a old friend of mine. She brought beer and I brought snacks. We spent all the hours there watching the boats, cars and time pass. Me and her are not close anymore but that memory has been forever stuck into my mind as a pleasant moment we will always share.
there is just something about summer time and shoving everyone into the vehicle to drive 1+ hours to do something in a city over. Heck – We do this during all the months anyway. Even if we go somewhere and something spontaneous has happened! Like seeing a celebrity randomly and getting to meet them!
It is like the time I surprised my now fiance and future step daughter with a random adventure – we went to the zoo in a neighboring city. It was wonderful and got to experience the city as a little family. Or randomly going with friends to shop at Ikea for no other reason than to get ideas for our place.
