Summah time! Summah time! Sum, sum, summah time!

I despise, loathe, hate, detest, abhor, (I can keep going but I think you get the idea) summer.  It's hot. It's humid.  Bugs are abundant.  Mosquitoes bite. June bugs ruin my basil.  It's just plain miserable.   But since it's here and there isn't a damn thing I can do about it, I'm gonna try to look on the bright side and enjoy what I can about it.  And I shall list them here so when I start to bitch and moan then I (or you) can refer myself back to this list and try to be ok with the season.

 Fresh, homemade pesto.

Pretty flowers by our front porch. 

Being able to enjoy breakfast outside.

Homegrown lettuce.

Trips to Tweetsie

Ice cream in the park.

The variety of produce at the farmers market.

Blueberries from my Papaw's old blueberry bushes.

Eating icee pops.

 Home grown veggies from my garden.

Wild blackberries.

Hanging out with this wild and crazy guy..

Trips to the "liberry"..

Watermelon margaritas on the deck while listening to cicadas and
reading a good book or while hanging out with my "Weird Sisters".

Unplanned strip downs for sprinkler time.
