Summer Days

Thinking about summer days.
  • Sitting by the Andrews Air Force Base swimming pool while my kids practiced their laps for swim team
  • eating watermelon. Mama would not buy a watermelon before July 4 - saying they weren't ripe
  • wearing strappy sandals
  • going barefoot - feeling the heat of the sidewalk, trying to avoid burrs, the feel of warm sand between your toes
  • running in the hose on hot days - especially liked it when we had the rotating sprinkler on
  • going to the beach
  • home grown tomato sandwiches - thick juicy slices tomato slathered with Dukes mayonaise between slices of white bread.
  • the sweet smell of honeysuckle on the vines covering fences.
  • sitting on the front porch in the evenings
  • the sound of metal floor stand occilatting fan stirring up a breeze in the living room.
  • tall glasses of iced tea with a layer of white sugar granules on the bottom of the glass.
Maybe I will recall more as the day goes on.
