Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you

July 7th - some like it hot

Let every dawn be to you as the beginning of life, and ever setting sun be to you as its close.

John Ruskin

For me one of the best things about summer is the longer hours of day light.  I dont complain when the days get hot and steamy, because I  can enjoy the sunshine.  

For those of you who cant wait until fall comes when it cools down,  I thought I list my reasons to love summer.  Summer is meant to be enjoyed and if you dont enjoy it while its around you are doing yourself an injustice.

I know people complain about the heat, but I always remind myself, you dont have to shovel sunshine.  Ill soak it up gladly. Sunny days improve my outlook. It brightens my days in more ways that I can say.  

Summer is a time for kicking back, taking it easy and making the most of these long sunny days.  Its a time to sip Iced Tea, and eat watermelon.  Its time for a trip to the beach.  Its a time for picnics in the park and visiting with loved ones. And that is what my pictures are of todaypicnics in the park

When the sun is shining I can do anything; no mountain is too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome.

I like that: 'You don't have to shovel sunshine!' It is great seeing families enjoying the summer. Good stuff today and I really did enjoy the smile. Sherry even cracked one! ;-)

I love summer, too, and it is all too short of a season here. Fall is my favorite season but I love summer, too. You can HAVE winter here through. lol xo Diana

Great picnics in the park! I too like the sunshine and the heat doesn't bother me as long as I'm not out in it for a long time. Summer is a very relaxed time if people take advantage of it.

Good points! I know we should learn to appreciate ALL the seasons of our lives. But, too, I wonder if our memories aren't connected to the seasons? For example, the 'best' times of my life have (99% of the time) occurred during winter.
