But onto other things. I hope that you have all been enjoying your summers. Can I encourage you to get out there and do so? Our winters here in Winnipeg are very long and cold and so we need to drink in every last drop of summer that we can. It's also a great exercise in living in the moment. Yesterday my husband and I each got a cold drink and went outside and sat in the yard and read and sipped - most enjoyable. Then my son-in-law came out with our little grandson and they sat on a blanket together and it felt like a little party right there in the yard. It doesn't need to be much or intricately planned - just be outside and let things happen. Sometimes when we're out there, our neighbors will stop by and we'll end up having a really nice visit with them. It's all good!
So, for now, nothing too heavy. Let's keep it light and summery. Get to the beach or to a park with some friends and just enjoy the warm weather, the sound of the birds in the trees, the river flowing lazily by , the sound of bees buzzing in the flowers - all wonderful parts of our summers.
Keep enjoying! We've got several weeks to go yet. Hurray!!
Until next week, keep those flip-flops and barbeques going!
