Here are five simple things I will miss about summer:
1} The long, endless days – Daylight lasting until 9 PM.
2} Cotton and linen fabrics – So comfortable to wear, or wrap around yourself.
3} Skimpy clothes and sockless feet/No layers to bother with – Grabbing a wallet and a set of keys and heading out the door dressed as you are, in a crisp summer dress, or a pair of shorts and a soft cotton t-shirt. I love not having a lot of stuff weighing me down.
4} Fresh picked fruits and vegetables – Especially peaches, strawberries, blueberries, watermelon, tomatoes and corn-on-the-cob. It's true you can eat them all year around, but they don't taste the same.
5} Summer rain – It sweeps over you swiftly, and an hour later the sun is back out. I don't mind walking in the summer rain.
So long summer. Until next year ...
Summers go by so quickly. And once again fall is right around the corner.
