Hello. I know that I’ve only posted sporadically lately and honestly, I just don’t know where the time has gone. As I sit here this afternoon writing this, it is raining yet again and only 62 out and a huge rain storm is heading this way tonight. It’s jean and sweatshirt weather. It’s saying it will hit 80’s this weekend. We can only hope. New England/Boston has not had a summer this year. We’ve had about two days that we’ve reached 80 degrees since May.
Since I have a summer birthday and love the summer and summer activities (Cape Cod, golf, day trips, walking along the beach in the early evening, dining outside with friends), this summer feels more like spring or fall. Where has summer gone? Can we even call it summer? Someone at work today said there are only five weekends left of summer and I thought NO! I need more summer. I’ve played golf a handful of times and done none of my usually summer activities. When the sun comes out you don’t want to go to work, you just want to take advantage of it. It puts everyone in a good mood.
A few weekends ago, I took a couple of fun classes and made 12 Christmas cards in July. Classes were down the Cape, one of my favorite places to go. I was able to stay with my very close friend and her family so I didn’t have to drive back and forth two days in a row. It was so nice and I didn’t run into the normal heavy Cape traffic that weekend, much to my pleasure. The missing sun even decided to came out after class, so I got in a little sun in as well. That weekend I had a lot of fun and was able to combine some of my favorite things despite the weather–Cape, friends, and being creative.
Even though the sun seems to have taken it’s own vacation this summer here in Boston/New England and where we’d really like it to come back and the rain and cool weather to go on vacation, you can still be creative and have fun. What are some of the fun things that you are doing this summer? Post a comment and share something you enjoy.
So, here’s to the rest of July and hopefully when I go on vacation in mid-August, the sun will come back from its vacation.
