Thursday's Top Ten List

This is my second post of the day, if you would like to scroll down. ~ Cheryl

Top Ten Things I like about Summer ~

Schedules aren’t so rigid ~ we aren’t slaves to the clock!

The smells of summer….even the dust and weeds, remind me of good times growing up.

Watching the moonlight with Honey hunk!

Roadside fruit stands!

Water…I don’t care if it is the pool, the lake, a stream to wade in or the sprinkler…LOVE IT!

The smell of cooking outdoors (oops! Are we still under a burn ban?)

Rodeos, Fourth of July, backyard cookouts, camp outs at the river, homemade ice cream get together(s) ….all of it! (even ice fights with the kids)

The grands….they are here, they are coming and going constantly. I miss that once the weather turns “nasty”.

Lazy times, fishing at the pond.

The absence of ice on the ground….I hate driving on ice and as I’ve gotten older, I don’t like walking on it either!!!

Be sure and visit Beth, for more Top Ten Lists!!!



  1. Mmmm...those summer smells. Sunblock on sun-warmed skin (used to be tanning oil), laundry dried on the line, fresh peaches.....

    The older I get the more I am with you on the ice. I fall in the parking lot at work at least once a winter and I've gotten to be really paranoid about it. I look like I'm 90 shuffling across it.

  2. I used to buy a body wash that smelled like summer to me. A mixture of sunshine, chlorinated pools, fresh air, fabric softener on towels, etc. It was the BEST thing ever! I would take a shower just to smell that stuff. Can't find it anymore.

    Loved your list ... as always! :) Thanks for joining in!

  3. I love your list! So many great things on it :)

    Hope you're having a happy Summer!
