Welcome to the World, Summer Time!

"Summer is there to be slurped up. We know summer is the height of being alive. We don't believe in God or the prospect of an afterlife mostly, so we know that we're only given eighty summers or so per lifetime, and each one has to be better than the last ... otherwise, how would you know that you have lived your summertime best? What if you missed out on some morsel of shaded nirvana?" Gary Shteyngart, Super Sad True Love Story

Even though the sun has been taking it's sweet time, today is the deadline. Today summer is being dragged kicking and screaming from it's dark hiding place. Like inducing labor - ready or not, here you come!

Summer solstice is my favorite day of the year. It heralds the arrival of my favorite season. It's also the longest day of the year. It has the most daylight for my favorite things : sunbathing, badminton and checking tasks off my to-do list. I'm always saying I need more hours. June 20th, wish granted ....

  1. "some morsel of shaded nirvana", loving that phrase.

    Summer arrived here in full heat blast, it also took it's time.

    happy solstice.

  2. Cheers to the long days of summer and all that it brings!
    :) Hope you are having a great week!
