Yesteday I had the grandest time basking in the sun while my little ones splashed around in the pool to cool off. A week and a half ago when we were visiting graves on Memorial Day, we plowed through slushy snow and shivered in our flip-flops and short-sleeved shirts. It’s amazing how a few days can bring a turnaround, but I’m glad for it because Winter was never my favorite season. (I grew up in the tropics, hello!)
I’m a sunflower who follows the light. I love going barefoot and feeling the grass tickle my toes. The sound of bees happily buzzing by as I stretch out on the lounger in the patio, a book in hand, is perfect background music. Ice pops rapidly melting, sticky rivulets running down my arm, and I don’t care…I don’t care…. My kids squeal and run away as I chase them in the backyard. Or in the park. The wind whistling by my ears as I swing higher, and higher still. Childhood magic visits once again.

Because summer is here, there’ll be less hunkering down in the basement office typing away worlds my mind creates, and more living, experiencing the world of the here and now. My reality. That said, I won’t be posting daily anymore, but rest assured I will still be here (and knowing me, I’ll probably keep up with at least 3 posts per week because I love blogging and connecting with my wonderful and smart readers).
Now on to the other FUN things:
The “Writing is NOT Like a Box of Chocolates MEME” is still going strong and expanding. I will continue to update my list. So if you have free time and would like to check out what other people have come up with, find it here.
Also, Michelle Simkins of Greenwoman is hosting two cool things:
1. Round Robin Blogvel entitled Skeleton Key. The table of contents can be found under PAGES. Or just click here.
2. Summer of Bloggerly Love. I will be guest posting on her blog on the 22nd of June, and in turn, Michelle will be here to enamor us all with her wit and humor (I love this woman. She never fails to make me smile.)
I hope you will all have a great and fun summer! If you have fun and cool news you want to share with us, please do so. We’re all about sharing the love here. ❤
