Do’s and Don’ts of Summer

by Marie on June 2, 2007

Summer is here and already roasting HOT. Well, it’s only 88, but feels like fire. I guess it could be worse, like in St. George where my sister is frying eggs on her sidewalk. Oh, I get so excited for June to come, making summer plans, buying sun block. Then comes July and August, and I can hardly stand to stay outside. I clocked the time on my shade in the back yard last year, having until 11:00 am to be out and watch the kids swim in the kiddie pool, before we step up the deck stairs as the sun hits each step to the sliding door. But this year I plan on being more of a trooper, especially with our large umbrella we bought for the patio. All I need is a large lemonade and my Mist Maker I bought when I was pregnant in August 05′.

Here are a few Do’s and Don’ts on my list of Summer Fun:

Do – get out the snow cone maker and invite all the neighbor kids.

Don’t – get out the snow sled, that won’t be ready for another 5 months.

Do – watch the veggie garden get big and delicious.

Don’t – watch the birds eat all your strawberries, it just gets you mad.

Do – use the grill for dinner every night to keep the kitchen cool.

Don’t - use the grill too close to the house or your vinyl siding will melt, oops!

Do – go to the local pool and splash around.

Don’t – go to the local pool after 11:00 am, just too many kids.

Do – get hooked on a new summer reality t.v. series (I love Last Comic Standing and I need to start up So You Think You Can Dance).

Don’t - get hooked on a new summer reality t.v. series (I always say I want to cancel cable for the summer).

Now, here are a few other blogging friends Summer to do lists. Their lists will soon be added to mine!

The City Walkers

The Blamires Bunch

Have fun with your Summer, and remember the sun block and mosiquito repellent!
