What could be better than this beautiful time of year, on the cusp of summer, with everything so lush and green and bursting with color. I really do enjoy each and every season, but right now I’m soaking up the sun on these 80 degree days, and finding joy in potting up some beautifully colored plants, reading on the deck with a delicious glass of iced tea, and even something as simple as a walk through the neighborhood.
After a bit of a health scare over the winter, I’ve learned to truly appreciate every moment of every day. It feels like the beauty of the season is a gift to be savored and appreciated, and I do. I look forward to days at the pool and beach with my husband and family, the bounty the farmer’s markets have to offer this time of year and spending time indoors in the cool ac on the days when the heat and humidity becomes unbearable. I can always find another book to read or something to sew or crochet.
Speaking of the farmer’s market, I bought the most delicious fresh spinach that turned into a great salad. There’s also a young man there that makes the best pesto I’ve ever tasted. We enjoyed that on slices of toasted baguette with a bit of homemade mozzarella. I can see we’ll be eating very well this summer.
Are you enjoying this time of year as much as I am? I truly hope so. Have a wonderful weekend.
