Tuesday was the first day of summer, and yesterday really, really felt like it. I was just about to start cleaning the apartment and doing vacation laundry when my phone rang. It was my 12 year old brother, now a week into summer vacation, telling me he was bored and he wanted to go swimming at our apartment pool.
Laundry and cleaning can wait, the pool cannot. So today I was reminded of just how amazing a summer day can be. Summer is:
A stop at the discount store for cheap blow up pool toys
Swimming until afternoon thunderstorms drive you inside.
Baking chocolate chip cookies in your bathing suit.
Pasta salad and corn on cob for dinner.
Looking forward to many more days just like this in the next few months.
