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.....
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?
