Quite true, this quote! Whilst searching through a quotation website to find the proper credit for it, I noticed so many other lovely sayings about summer. They all made me remember why I love it so much.
This morning was spent running errands; getting new tennis shoes and the like, with a refreshing stop at Jamba Juice on the way. They have a smoothie called Razzmatazz, which I always get because a) it is delicious, and b) it has my cat's name in it. Hee-hee. We also went to the library so I got stocked up on some reading material.
Well, this afternoon was a rather lazy one, although I hate using that word because I did do stuff, just not the running-around kind.
For one thing, I made some tea (iced, of course. It's simply too hot for anything else). I have to confess: this is the first time I've ever made it for myself. Usually I just make my dad do it or get somewhere else. Buuut it turned out alright. :)
I read a little bit of an old favorite while sipping on my refreshing concoction and eating a burrito for lunch (I can't escape my Texan roots!). I would have read more but I get too distracted by other things. Like the tripod I dug out of the closet today. I happily discovered that my camera fits pretty much perfectly on it. You know what that means! Actually, I don't, although I am thinking more selfies. Yes, I am terribly narcissistic, too.
On an unrelated note, I have gotten a bit more into journalling lately; primarily poems & lists & short paragraphs of thoughts and feelings whenever the mood strikes. It mostly strikes at eleven at night, but whatever. My journal is everything I can't say out loud, my true, however cheesy, feelings. If anyone ever read it, I think I would die.
My afternoon was spent in the company of some of my most beloved things, books and cameras and ice-cold glasses of tea. Tell me, what is your favorite way to spend a June afternoon?
P.S. I have just realized it is past six. What? It feels like three. Well then.
