5 Things I Love About Summer

Flowers! a.k.a. Allergies

Living in Oregon, I rarely see the sun, as my white-ass legs can attest. So when it rears its head, I’m outside. At least as much as a book geek/lover of dark bars can be, so I take these opportunities to grab a book/laptop/Kindle, and sit out on the back porch.

Today is a perfect day! 🙂

Not too hot. No clouds. A slight breeze.

Which leads me into my personal favorite part of Summer…

  1. Hanging laundry out to dry on the clothesline. What’s not to love? It’s environmentally friendly! It saves money by not having to run the dryer! Best of all, I get that glorious smell in my clothes, sheets, etc.
  2. BBQ. He’s the MASTER GRILLER, so I don’t have to cook. I marinate the meat, and make side dishes. Less work = more yummy.
  3. Cold beer. I know. This is my sobriety blog, but there’s absolutely nothing like a cold beer on a hot day. 😉
  4. Strolls through the sunshine. I adore walking around the neighborhood, taking random pictures like the one above. Plus, it’s great excercise!
  5. Skirts. Um what? Yep. I said it. Summer is one of the only times I actually look like a girl?! I abhor shorts. In fact, the only pair of shorts I own is pajamas, which are not worn in public. I also adore fashion, and skirts make a girl feel just a little prettier. 🙂

So, dear Readers, what are your favorite parts of Summer?
