When I was still teaching, I used the summer to relax of course, but I also used it as a time to get organized and to conquer a long to do list.
That is NOT what I am going to do this summer.
Here is what I am going to do, when I am not off visiting our grandsons.
I am going to eat avocados with diced tomatoes from my garden, sprinkled with Nature’s Seasoning and fresh squeezed lime juice on top.
I am going to play music on the patio and dance back and forth in front of the den window (where my husband will likely be watching sports on television) so he will laugh.
I am going to watch every minute of the College World Series because I love baseball (and the Aggies are one step away) and all of the players look like older versions of my grandsons.
I am going to drink alkaline water with watermelon, or strawberries, or cucumbers added for flavor.
I am going to buy bags of crushed ice at Sonic because it is amazing.
I am going to wear Mexican blouses and white cropped jeans and rhinestone Yellow Box flip flops and lots of bracelets and big Frida earrings.
And, I hope at least once this summer all of our girls (and my grandsons) will be here together so I can pamper them and cook whatever they want.
What’s on your simple summer list?
