SUMMERING [suhm-er-ing] /ˈsəmər-ing/, Verb

-the art of experiencing Summer to its fullness
-to frolic in all things Summer
-to bask and relax all through the summer solstice until the autumnal equinox with no shame
-to experience lazy days and all the riches that the season brings like:  berry picking, beach laying, sea glass searching, peaches and summer fruit tasting, star gazing, fire fly catching (and releasing), attending every possible bbq in a ten mile radius and throwing as many as you can, sun reading, limeaide drinking (no insult to lemonade lovers), lake /pond/ocean/stream visiting, taking long country drives with the windows down as you catch the wind with your arms, singing outdoors along with your favorite song, eating outdoors all the time, evening walks, walking outside, sucking on honeysuckle, breathing deeply the sweet scents in the air, picking a gardenia or a habiscus and placing it in your hair, wearing straw hats, walk barefoot on the grass and wear sandals at all times, feeding the birds, and the most important one, spend as little time as possible inside anywhere.

I hope you are enjoying, experiencing, practicing and living. . . 
the art of Summering!

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”
― Henry James

It's rained for three solid weeks - yesterday was the only day in weeks and weeks it didn't rain, and it's been sooooo hot - really hasn't been a very good summer.

But yesterday was awesome and we enjoyed being outdoors nearly the entire day.

Your pics are so summery and pretty~ hope you enjoy your remainder of summer!

Actually, to summer, or summering has long been a legit verb. As in: They summer on Martha's Vineyard and winter in the Bahamas. :)
