" Summer afternoon—summer afternoon;
to me those have always been the two most
beautiful words in the English language. "
What do you do on a Sunday afternoon in summer?
Sometimes we . . .
Go for a Sunday drive, windows down, in the countryside.
Stop for an ice cream cone on the way home.
Sit on the deck, smell the roses, watch the birds.
Visit with friends in the shade, sip something cool.
Read a book, mesmerized by its compelling tale.
Drift off, snooze like a cat.
Watch shadows dance on the ceiling and breezes flirt with the curtains.
Laze on a day hazy with heat.
Slurp juicy watermelon or icy Creamsicles.
Sometimes we just sit—letting
hours slip by at a pleasant pace.
Grateful for summer afternoons and
the chance to 'just be'.

Wishing you a beautiful day.
