It’s officially summer as of 11:54 a.m. ET today.

I’ve reached an age where I no longer take this lightly as the road isn’t as long as it once seemed.

So I follow the advice of the world weary – and who among us can’t be counted in that camp these days – get out there and enjoy this glorious season to the hilt. The long days,

Wishing everyone an endless summer with a little less rain than normal.

Carpe Diem! dog beach sunsetNow get out there and leave your paw prints on the beach.

You are 2 hours south of me and you have “summer”?
Dude, my furnace was on this morning when I woke up!
The Saginaw Bay area is still waiting for summer to show up...

Used to have 3 favorite seasons. Fall, Winter, Spring. Never summer. Hot sticky Northeast summers. Now Winter is on my dislike list too. The cold never bothered me. But with age now it does.

I can always find a warm spot in Winter but there quickly comes a point when taking more clothes off does not good and isn’t an option.

Texas and Oklahoma Summers are brutal and the older I get the worse they get. When the OAT reaches body temperature I’m done and it is time to go in, shutter the windows, hit my favorite chair with a glass of iced tea and read myself to sleep or watch youtube documentaries.

Today is mowing day and the high is a mild 94 with 60% humidity. It is already 80 degrees outside. Better get an early start.

Been there (back when you could just walk up to the thing and sit on one of the stones if you wanted to) done that.

I've been back in NJ for a week. Maybe this is really Seattle? Whatever, it's cool and rainy. So I'll be easing into the weekend at my cigar club.

I HATE the summer. Old or not. I like cold weather, not frying like an egg.

I absolutely love summer.

I love seeing green everywhere, walking barefoot outside, seeing my kids biking past with bats and gloves or fishing poles and tackle boxes, hearing my kids laugh and play outside, breathing in sweet air that doesn’t freeze the lungs, eating supper while it’s still light outside, working in my garden, and everything else that goes with warm weather.

My plan was to permanently head south after college, met my winter loving husband instead. So now I just embrace summer while trying not to be sad over how short it is.

Yes! I love summer too, and you’re right. They get even more precious as we begin to sense that there’s fewer of them ahead of us. Every moment of summer should be savored!

My cousin lives in northern MN. He always says, “It’s NOT true we don’t have summer. We do. And if it falls on a weekend, we might have a picnic!”
