Fill in the blank Friday!

My plans this summer include a whole lot of nothin'.  I have the summer off from school and I'm enjoying every single day of it!  Lots of naps and relaxing, reading and going to movies.  I have lots more of that planned.

The best summer I ever had was pretty much any childhood summer.  We went to the beach every year except for one, when we went to Tennessee to Opryland in 1976 and were in the audience for Johnny Cash's Christmas special!  That was the summer before we knew my sister was on the way. 
I've never had a bad summer, though.  I love summer!!

Summer is absolutely glorious!  It's HOT, it's going barefoot, drinking ice cold sweet tea, eating fresh fruits and veggies, catching lightning bugs after dark, running through the sprinkler, going to the beach, getting ice cream at 9:00 at night, thunderstorms, my birthday, sunny days and listening to the crickets at night.  It's what we endure winter for.

My favorite summer food is fresh fruits and veggies!  I love yellow squash, zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, cucumbers, peaches and berries.  Yum!!!

The best way to quench a summer thirst is with homemade lemonade right from a Mason jar.

My summer uniform consists of shorts, tank tops and cotton dresses.  And NO SHOES!!  Brightly-colored toenails are usually part of my summer wardrobe, too.  Right now, they're orange.  :)  Mambo Melon.

The best thing about summer is it gives everybody a chance to relax, slow down and enjoy being lazy for a little while.
