"Summer afternoon, summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language."
- Henry James
Yesterday marked the summer solstice and today as of 2:45 pm Eastern Standard Time marks the beginning of my summer vacation. I've always loved the summer season. Flowers are in bloom, vegetables are growing, the sun is shining, and I am loving life. Every year I look forward to the summer so that I can bask in the beauty of it all and this year is no different.
I've made a resolution to go hiking at least once each week. I also plan to finish writing my novel, read many books, visit more art museums, go to the beach, take a few classes online, and do one or two home improvement projects around the house. I can't wait to get started because I know that summer will fly by.
What are you doing this summer?
