Fun Monday

Our Fun Monday assignment is given by our lovely Jan and she would like us to write about the following: Lazy Hazy Days of summer are upon us now, tell us what activities you enjoy doing outside and how do you stay cool. Share some photos of both if you wish.

So far on the east coast, we've had consecutive days of dry, below temperature, low humidity weather. It's been awesome but very unusual. By time July rolls around, the air conditioner is kicking and outside activities are unbearable or limited to morning hours because of the humidity. But, this year, we've been blessed with gorgeous weather and the grass, flowers, and lakes and streams are all reaping the benefits.

I love summer time and being outside watching my girls playing in their pool or slipping slide is one activity I enjoy. I even enjoy being splashed once in awhile. The next thing I have to mention is cracking claws (eating crabs) with family and friends. There's nothing more enjoyable then sharing a table full of scavenger eating, spider like, crustaceans on a warm summer evening and of course one or two or three beers to help wash down your meal. Finally, I could go on and on but, on lazy hazy days of summer, taking walks on the edges of Cordorus Lake is another summer activity I love doing. This year the shoreline has been submerged from the abundance of rain but when it exists, it's fun to take off your sandals and dip your feet in the water while looking for rocks to skip on top of the water.

I don't have pictures to share because my computer is sick and needs to go to the computer doctor this week.

When I was a college student always enjoyed leaving the mountains and heading east for the summer. The eastern states just seem so well-suited to enjoy the summer--the water, good breezes and those tasty morsels from the surrounding waters. I hope you are able to get out and enjoy this season to your heart's content, Tracy.

Yeah, you're so right...we have been blessed with gorgeous weather here in PA. I keep waiting for the humidity to creep in and then it's hibernation inside!

I'm envious of your weather... ours has been torturously hot or heavy with scary thunderstorms (not scary to me, but to everyone else). Summer is quite unpredictable here, except for the "hot" part!!!

Can you believe I have not had crabs yet this summer?!? We are planning to eat tons of lobster while in Maine, but it just isn't the same as some yummy MD crabs!

You have created a lovely picture of your summer even without photos.
