SUMMER TIMEEEEEE .... AND THE READIN' IS EASY ....
Hey Everyone! It's officially summer!
Season of sunshine & barbeques & beaches & popsicles & freckles!
(It's also the anniversary of the day that I started my period for the first time in 1967. One doesn't forget a thing like that when it's the official first day of summer, does one! Stupid really, because I should be remembering the day that I officially stopped having a period. But then, every day since then is a celebration!)
Now where was I? Did my mind wander again?
Oh yeah! It's June 21st, the first day of summer!
Hurray! Yeah! Zippidy-doo-dah! Happiness rains supreme!
Speaking of rain ..... In order to give this momentous date the recognition it deserves, I'll have to ignore the rain that fell yesterday ... and the stuff that is falling today .... and what is scheduled to fall for the next 3-4 days. Sigh!
But even if it doesn't look like summer outside, I can still think summer, right?
One of the things that I like to do is to make a special place on my bookshelf for my summer reading, books that I've gotten from yard sales or my Frenchies Store throughout the year especially to read during the dog days of summer. It just makes me feel warmer looking at them! Here's my list.
