The sun has finally come out again, and it is beginning to look like summer. Here are some of my favourites things…
- Enjoying all the beautiful gifts, nature has bestowed on us. The flowers, now in full bloom, not only do they look gorgeous, some of them have a beautiful scent too
- Good old BBQs, I do love them. It is particularly lovely when there is a load of you getting together enjoying the flavoursome food, and each other’s company.
- The sea. I love swimming in the sea in the summertime. A beautiful hot day, lazing on the beach and then cooling off with a refreshing swim.
- Not having to remember a coat! It is great just being able to go out in short sleeves without having to worry about getting cold.
- Listening to some great summer tunes! I love music at the best of times, but I always feel happy listening to the sounds of summer!
- The light mornings and evenings. I have never been that keen on the dark so having so much daylight really lifts my spirits, especially when I get up nice and early and the sun is already shining brightly.
- People come out of hibernation. There always seems to be more to do in the summer, People feel much more sociable, and get-togethers happen frequently.
What do you love most about the summer?
I hope that you are enjoying my posts from Linda’s Just Jot it January as much as I am enjoying writing them.
Here is today’s prompt word.
Your prompt for January 19th, 2018, brought to you by my dear friend and fellow Canadian, Kerry, is “Darkness.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Kerry at her blog, “Her Headache,” to read her post and say hi! Here’s her link: https://kkherheadache.wordpress.com/
I have never been keen on darkness. I like to know that there is just a little bit of light somewhere, nearby, such as the soft glow of a lamp, or maybe a chink of the landing light showing through at night. Being in a room that is pitch dark actually makes me feel dizzy and disoriented, not to mention uneasy.
The dark mornings and evenings at the moment are somewhat off-putting, Going to work in the darkness and coming home in it makes me feel rather downhearted. I look forward to the spring when the warmer, lighter and sunnier days appear. They really do make me feel energised!
