I'm back and Summer Time

First and foremost I would like to think everyone for their thoughts and prayers. It has been a slow recovery for me from food poisoning but every day I am getting stronger and feeling better.
Now back to my regularly scheaduled post.....

Summer Time

Just hearing those two little words make me smile. Why do you ask? First of all I love the fact that I get a repreve from my students. Now, don't get me wrong I do love working with kids but everyone needs a break. By the time school is everyone is ready for it. Teachers, Parents, Students, Cafateria Ladies you name it. We all need time to wind down and relax after a long school year.
Secondly, I love all the wonderful summer produce that is avalable in my area.  I love squash, blackberries, strawberries, corn and watermelon. I can eat myself silly on this savory produce during the summer months. I also stock up on the goodies for the lean winter months ahead. Freezing fresh produce is a wonderful way to save money and keep fresh produce handy.
I also think that summer time is just more laid back than any other time of the year. People seem more relax. Their are no major holdiays that require gifts (besides birthdays). Plus I just think the summer heat makes everyone more easy going.

What do you think about summer time? Do you like it? Do you dislike it? What are your favorite summer past times?

I'm glad you're feeling better. I love summer except when it gets into triple temperature digits like it is now. I love the sun and not having to bundle up.

I'm so glad you're back!

I love lazy summer evenings. Not a fan of hot summer afternoons though. =)

I like all the fresh produce, but hate the humidity and the fact that my grass grows at a supernatural rate.

Hate that you've been sick! Glad you are feeling better each day.
I'm a teacher too and we just completed our school year yesterday. I love summertime so I can recharge, rejuvinate, re-EVERYTHING! I too love all the summertime fruits and veggies. Also, just love being relaxed and enjoying life! Then I am ready to start all over again in August.
Hope you have a great summer.
Hugs,
Tara
