You Know It's Summer When . . .

I can't stop skipping everywhere I go.
I wear my friendship anklets daily.
I walk around barefoot outside.
I can't seem to find enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do.
Menedy's (my stuffed cat) scarves come off and are put away in a box somewhere.
I stay up extra late reading.
We put the air conditioning units in the windows around the house.
Songs like "Call Me Maybe," "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," "22," and "Brighter Than the Sun" sound so much more appealing on the radio.
Scout starts to lay on the cool, hardwood floor rather than in her crate or on the couch.
I eat Popsicles and ice cream sandwiches daily.
We see our friends almost every day, if not twice that day.
I have a huge pile of books to be read.
The laundry in my hamper is towering high, the clothes dirty with sweat, dirt, and grass stains.
I blog more often.
I write more often (if that's even possible).
Fruit tastes even sweeter.
I feel all bubbly inside my stomach.
I can't stop smiling.

Hooray for summer! I'm enjoying it now before it gets to be 110 degrees where I live :)

I love summer, too!! This is such a great, happy post.

Sandals, sandals, sandals. I love sandals.

Reading, reading, reading. Reading is always magical, but I think it's even more magical in summertime. :)

I giggled at the part about Menedy - when it started to get warm, I would always change the doll* clothes my stuffed animals had been wearing.

*Clearly, stuffed animals are better than dolls so they should get the clothes. My dolls usually weren't wearing anything as a result...

Wow, 110 degrees?!?! I'm glad we're living in the age of air conditioning.

Sandals! *Facepalm* I knew I was forgetting something . . .

Yeah, Menedy even has a nightgown that matched mine. ;) Mine is way too small now, but she wears hers on occasion. And stuffed animals are WAY better! Have you ever heard of a unicorn doll?

I agree, stuffed animals rock! I'll introduce you to ours sometime!

I love the part about the laundry. Dirty, sweaty clothes are the sign of a good day!

So it WAS you that ate all the ice cream sandwiches! I KNEW it!

Sandals, yes. Too bad I can't wear shorts to work. Love that part of summer.

Best part of summer lolling in the bathtub with a spoon and a. big carton of strawberry ice cream.

I love ice cream! My favorite is chocolate peanut butter. ;)
