An Ode to Summer

SUMMER!  I love you so.  It is warm, and warm.  And so little laundry to do because all I wear is shorts and t-shirts.  And I don't have to worry about accidentally dying if I walk outside with the wrong clothes.  And warm.  And water, and long walks on the beach, and sunsets, and daylight until long into the evening.

And camp.  Am I the only one who misses camp?! Summer camp!

Long walks on the beach with my baby dog.

Dinners outside on Church St.  I refuse to say "Al fresco" dining because for some unknown reason that always makes me think of people eating outside, NAKED.  

Puttering the day away in the sunshine at the farmer's market.  Bread bikes.  Ice cream bikes.  

Bike rides.  SWIMS!  Did I mention it was warm?!  

Tomatoes.  Basil. Squash. Flowers. BERRIES, how could I forget the berries?!  Raspberries.  Stolen from bushes along the side of the road, on public land.  Delightful strawberry season that is so short I nearly miss it every. single. year. 

Vermont.  Summer.  Ahhhhhhhhhhh.
