Fun in the Sun

Duffy Brown here and ready to celebrate summer. This week is Memorial Day and the official kickoff of long days of sunshine.

I just love summer...heat and all. Bring it on. I love being out in the sun and opening windows and letting in fresh air. Temps have to hit 92 before I turn on the AC. I just remember all those days cooped up inside with the windows closed and freezing outside and try to soak up as much of summer as possible while it’s here.

This is the season of planting my garden and picking flowers for inside. It’s the season of fresh fruit. Watermelon, cantaloupe, cherries, peaches right off the tree and this year is apple year at my house and I can pick them right off my very own tree. Is there anything more fun than that!

It’s time to get out the bike and bike rack for some great rides not so close to home. It’s time to get out the grill and toss on burgers and veggies and hotdogs.

We had sailboats for years and Memorial Day marked the beginning of sailing season. Every Sunday the whole family sailed. I think it’s one of the main reasons my kids are so close today.

So what is your favorite thing about summer? What are you looking forward to the most? Dragging out the grill? Biking? Fresh right-off-the-vine fruits and veggie? Windows wide open?
