Share Your World 7-8-19

Are you a Summer person?   A Winter person?   Or one of the other seasons suits you best?

I’m definitely Autumnal. If we had springtime, I’d probably like that too. I prefer cool, not hot, weather and I could at this point in my life skip deep winter and be very happy about it.

What is your favorite summertime clothing?   

Loose, cool dresses from India with sandals.

Do you find yourself eating out more during the summer?  Or making ‘cold food’ like salads and stuff you can heat in the microwave?

We don’t eat out more. There are no decent restaurants around here and anyway, we don’t have the money. We do eat a lot of salads and cold foods. Lots of fruit. Cherries, watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe.

Do you like watermelon?   What’s your favorite summertime treat?

No remains — except the pits

I like watermelon. I like most fruit. We don’t grow very good peaches or plums around here, but we do grow wonderful corn. Not a lot, so you have to grab it when it becomes available.

Are you thankful it’s finally (sorta) dry and warm?

We needed some dry weather to get some of the work done on the house. We needed three dry days to get the first coat of color on the deck and we need another three for the next coat. We also need some dry weather to get the deck propped by up.

Wet, but clean deck!
Deck with a new color on it.

It’s hard to get much done on the house when it is pouring all the time, especially with a lot of lightning and high winds.

  1. I am an autumn or a spring person. Hate winter because it’s hard to do my daily walk and summer is too hot sometimes in Melbourne. But what I love about summer is the abundance of mangoes 🥭 Thanks for sharing, Marilyn!


  2. Thanks Marilyn for Sharing Your World! Those cherries look AMAZING! Sadly we don’t get ‘quality’ cherries here in Utah any more (at least not for the past few years). In the past we were known for our cherry orchards and the delicious fruit those orchards produced. But “pave paradise and put up a parking lot (or a lot of cookie cutter housing) took precedence. Enjoy your summer weather! I’m finding that autumn is far and away the most favored season of them all. Me? I like spring, but I always was out of step with everyone else. 😉
