“It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.”Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy-Tacy and Tib
Here, in Canada, we have 9 months of cold weather, so the 3 months of summer are a dream to come true. It is time for gardening and enjoying the outdoors. I like to wake up earlier than usual, generally the birds songs do the job of take me off the bed. I run/walk by the river and parks in my neighborhood, always with my phone to take pictures of the beauty around me.
” Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.”John Lubbock
Eating healthier is another summer thing for me. Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, and cutting down on the fat and sugar.
“Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August.”
Beach time is a must too, I go south for a few days to enjoy the ocean, but not last year and not sure if it will be possible this year, we are still in lockdown.
Hope you enjoyed to hear my summer highlights and please share yours in the comments, I’d love to hear it!Jenny Han, The Summer I Turned Pretty
