For some reason, I have been keeping this tiny shell in my purse. It fell out the other day when I grabbed my wallet. I don't know what beach it is from. Gulf Shores, Hilton Head, Lake Michigan? I love the commercial where people pick up this huge conch shell and they put it up to their ear to hear the ocean, and a sweet cherubic voice says.... it's the beach calling!
I have the largest collection of seashells. I keep it all on the beaches of the world, perhaps you've seen it?
Week #31 LIFE'S simple pleasures - summer time
The summer solstice where the days are the longest and the nights are the shortest. Schools are on a break to take advantage of the warm, hot days. Teenage jobs cater to recreation. More families travel and go on vacation. People spend more time outdoors.
There are a lot of things you can do in the summer time. It is one of LIFE'S simple pleasures. I can combine numerous simple pleasures from the beginning of this year and do many of them in the summer time...
I can enjoy a cold beverage at the beach, a waterfront bar, or under an umbrella in my backyard!
I can find a best seller beach book read... or enjoy an old classic.
I can feel the warmth of the sun and the SHINE it brings to my day.
I can listen to the birds chirp about their business.
I can watch people at the beach or the ice cream shop.
I can sit on my front porch and just watch the clouds go by.
I can collect seashells and put them in a glass jar and decorate my bathroom.
My favorite thing about summer is having a valid excuse for my excessive sweating
And so with that... enjoy the rest of your summer. It is one of LIFE'S simple pleasures!
