Do not worry about whether or not the sun will rise

Be prepared to enjoy it

Wonderful Wednesday

Summer is wonderful / Welcome Summer

I do think the sun is wonderful in the summertime.  I miss that sunshine so much for the better part of 6 months out of the year.  It lights up the world and heats up the earth.  It helps all things grow and it's even a good power source.  It helps our moods and has healing benefits.  May through September are really the only months we get to enjoy it at its best and I try to do just that

Summertime also means lots of fresh fruits and veggies.  Watermelon is good and so is corn on the cob.  Corn is growing here but the old saying that the corn should be knee high by the 4th of July does hold true here.  It'll be awhile before we enjoy any locally grown but it is coming in from somewhere and it's pretty good too.

The beautiful tress and flowers are amazing.  After seeing such a bleak landscape here from November through March, it is wonderful to see the flowers in bloom.  Spring brings some nice days but often April showers continue into May.  This year has been much dryer than last.  You can never say always when it comes to the weather because it just changes so fast.


Under bright blue skies she soothes us with her warm rays making us feel as if anything is possible! 

In these temperate and enjoyable days of summer many parts of our days are so much easier than any other season of the year. The weather is lovely; there is no snow or ice. It is easier for us to take care of our homes and other parts of our days as well.

Summertime is a favorite season for many and I'm going to be enjoying every minute of it to the fullest.  For me summer shines like no other season of the year

Here's wishing you a perfect Summer Day!

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!  

Happy Summer!

I'm checking in on your two blogs to see what you have to say about summer. It is two days and more of scorching here in Michigan and we did have corn last night. I bought it at Aldi's and it was from Minnesota, isn't that weird. It was very good though. Stay cool.

Happy summer Ma!! I'm with you; I like it light with the sunlight, not fond when we lose it in winter especially. I'm sure your summer will be a GREAT one!



Wishing you a season full of perfect summer days. ENJOY.

The best part of summer is the fruit and veggies. The worst part is the hot temps. sandie
