Those early morning hours between 5 a.m. and 9 a.m. Depending on where you are and what season, it can be the best part of the day. I prefer those times during the spring and summer. When you go outside just as the sun is coming up and the air is cool and crisp. You can see the dew on the grass, shrubberies, and even the spider webs that stretches between them. Where the back yard was once a mess, is now something out of a movie with the morning fog hovering just above it. The air is so clear, you can hear the traffic on the highway that’s 1-2 miles away. And the musty smell of damp wood fills the air. It’s that time of the morning that makes my day, when majority of the public is still asleep. I am usually on the road before most turn over for the last time.
Some summer mornings, I find myself sitting out on the deck in the back with a hot cup of my favorite coffee. As the day goes on and the weather heats up, that’s when I start anticipating the next morning and when I walk out the front door, the world is at PEACE!

93 days! We have 93 days of summer. Bummer! Every time I think about it, I feel sad and hurried. I feel as if there is not enough time to do all that I need to do for the summer. I start making lists and calling family members to see who is having cook outs so I can plan accordingly. I live for the spring and summer, can’t really function in the late Fall and Winter. Yeah, you have the spring and fall to continue doing things, but the summer is when you get to wear certain clothes and water parks are open. Grilling is not just for the summer, you can also cook during the spring, fall and winter, if the weather is right.
Uh, 93 days! Why did someone put that number in my head? I wish I hadn’t heard that! Now I will mentally count down the days until Fall. Doom and gloom! I think I need to move to a more tropical environment, don’t you? Water parks have got to be the best places to go during the summer. If you are one of those families that do not have a pool in the back yard, then you will want to visit a water park, I have not been in a while, but looking forward to going before the summer is gone! Yay!!
