Making Summertime Special

I love summer, as I’m pretty sure you all know. Today is August 1st, though, and to me that means summer is 1/2 over since I consider the months of July and August to be the best that summer has to offer, even if they don’t coincide with the calendar’s definition of summer.

I’m doing my best to make the most of what’s left of my favorite season and that includes making week nights feel like weekends. How, you ask?

By having a cold glass of chardonnay.

By playing horseshoes with Dale and Hannah.

And by enjoying a slightly extravagant meal.

How are you making the most of summer?

  1. Corn on the cob just about every night, lots of fish, and sitting under the apple tree on the glider with my knitting. Picking early tomatoes in the garden. Briney air coming in the window at night. Beaching it has been curiously absent this summer. The cicadas arrived very early in the season.

  2. Enjoying a frosty beer on our beach, with good friends! Boat rides. Listening to the girls swimming happily in the lake. Ahhhh, yep, that’s summer!

  3. We are making the most of our summer in the same way you are, sans the horse shoes. We’ll substitute garden for that one. Bring on the chardonnay!

  4. Getting into nature and foraging for wild mushrooms. Then cooking them. And knitting.

  5. Summer concerts, evening meals with friends with the food coming from our farmer’s market, day at the beach, reading and knitting time on the sun porch…. one more summer trip to Maine after the early August crowds have left. Ahhh!

  6. We’re eating outside every evening, reading late and sleeping late, enjoying the garden’s offerings, and getting a truck load of work done around the house. In twenty three days I’ll have a classroom full of kids, but I’m trying not to think about that just yet…

  7. I spend extreme amounts of time on my screened porch. I drink lemonade. I garden. I walk around the block barefoot sometimes

  8. This will be my last Summer in the US for a while – moving back to Australia in November, so I’m making sure to see my friends and do the Southern New Jersey summery things – custard cones, corn on the cob, Jersey tomatoes.

  9. That glass of wine looks so inviting. ; )

    I remember my parents cooking lobster when I was a little girl, but I’ve never done it myself! I think I’m going to have to put that on my list.

  10. corn on the cob and lobster reminds me of my growing up summers in NJ…my mom makes fabulous lobster! and august…trying to stay cool and relaxed, enjoying delicious tomatoes, peaches and basil…and hopefully a few good books.
