My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

The 5 Senses of Summer

If I didn't have any of my senses anymore, these are what I would think of when I think of summer.

The smells of summer: Honeysuckle in my gardens and galax on the hiking trail (smells like smelly socks)
The sights of summer: flowers blooming and green grass
The sounds of summer: Kids playing baseball at the local park around the block from my house, people working in their yards, people talking as they walk past my house (lots of people take up walking in the summer!)
The touch of summer: sweat rolling off my body as I hike because the humidity is disgusting here
The tastes of summer: watermelon and cantelope (I can taste it just thinking about this!)

It is very humid here in summer and usually too hot to walk anywhere. At the moment, it's OK to walk anytime of the day which is nice (if it isn't raining)

I love cantalope. Just thinking about it will make my mouth water. Dad and I always sprinkled salt and pepper on it. Yummmm.

Um, did ya have to include the smelly socks? LOL! Love this! I'm amazed you do so much hiking during the summer, the humidity around here just kills me. Love your list though!

This list could bring summer right back in the dead of winter!
