*Central air conditioning! It’s hotter than hot here in NJ lately!
*Listening to our local radio station with its interviews with people from local organizations, some who I know, trivia contests, “swap ‘n’ shop”, and “talk of the town”, as well as playing songs considered “oldies” but that I know most of the words to.
*Sipping iced tea and reading a book while waiting at a coffee shop for a friend to join me for lunch.
*Meeting friends for breakfast and lunch---love my summer time freedoms!
*Baking blueberry cake and eating it with vanilla ice cream!*Watering the plants and filling the bird baths.
*Spending lazy afternoons watching crime drama reruns.
*Donating usable but unwanted items to Goodwill.
*Trimming some bushes early in the day.
*Puttering in the kitchen while singing along to a favorite cd.
*Watching bees enjoying the blooms on the Rose of Sharon outside the kitchen window.
*Watching the lightning bugs rise up out of their hiding places at twilight and seeing how high they go.
*The way the setting sun lights the underside of the trees.
*Feeling the fan stirred air cooling me as I lie in bed at night.
