melody-mae said...

my favorite thing of summer? it has changed over the years, when my girls were small and at home I loved playing with them out in the sunshine, swimming, camping and taking them to parks! Now, I just love late nights out on my porch swing, relaxing at the end of the day with my husband...sometimes with a glass of wine sometimes not. But, just watching the sun go down with my hubs on that porch swing, yep doesn't get much better than that!

Cannary Family said...

Anonymous said...

QUESTION? WHAT DO I LIKE ABOUT SUMMER? WELL I GUESS BECAUSE I'M A SEMI SHUTIN BEACUSE OF HEALTH PROBLEMS AND A SENIOR CITZEN IN MY 70S I 'D HAVE TO SAY IS SITTING HERE IN MY FAMILY ROOM AND LOOKING OUT AT NATURE IN MY BACKYARD AND WATCHING THE DIFFERANT BIRDS AND SQUIRRELS DOING THEIR EVERYDAY THING. I JUST KNOW THAT THEIR THE SAME BIRDS EACH YEAR THAT COME AND GREET ME WITH THEIR CHIRPS EACH DAY. I COULD GO ON AND ON BUT I DON'T WANT TO BE A HOG HERE AND TAKE UP ANYMORE SPACE. GOD IS GOOD AND I THANK HIM FOR WHAT HE GIVES ME IN JOY OF THE SUMMER MONTHS.
