Summer Days

Summer has finally taken hold in my world and it feels glorious.  It’s sunshine; leisurely mornings; time to cook; zinnia seedlings; t-shirts, flip flops every day; warmth on my toes; green tomatoes on the vines; quiet in the afternoon; the cool of my home when I step inside out of the sunlit day; the chirp of birds in the morning; the blink of a firefly in the darkening twilight; the feel of a soft quilt on my bed; pots overflowing with flowers; the ease of day with no obligations.  Sometimes I wonder if Summer is so nice because it was so hard-earned.   Then I realize that the thing about Summer is to avoid over-thinking it and just enjoy the glory of it all.
