Favorite Things About Summertime

What are some of your favorite things about summertime? I love watermelon with salt, sunshine, sitting on the porch, a fresh glass of lemonade (check out my recipe below) always seems like it's the simple things that make summer special. Nothing expensive. A popscicle, a starry night, a dip in the water to cool off. The slower pace of life. As a teacher, I am blessed to have summers off. Wow! An entire season to ponder, to collect, to just be. It always goes so fast! Life goes by so fast, doesn't it? I want to savor it, every small moment. Sometime I get bored, and then I think, wait. Boredom is good! It means life is going at a slow pace. Savor it. When we're in a hurry we don't always have time to savor the simple blessings of everyday life. So sit on the porch with a glass of lemonade or a slice of juicy watermelon. Watch the clouds. Feel the warmth on your skin. For that is what really makes summertime so sweet.

Simply Southern Organic Lemonade Recipe

This delicious lemonade is SO simple to make. Simply add 1 1/2 cups of organic sugar to 6 cups of boiling water. Stir in 1 cup of fresh lemon juice, and you're done! Allow to cool or serve immediately over lots of ice. Enjoy on the porch with a good book.
