July is here and summer is into full swing. Schools are out, the kids are all home. It’s time to get around to enjoying long days and filling them with fun. When my children were younger they all swam for the local club swim team. They played tennis and golf and their little tanned tired bodies seemed to be full of boundless energy. Needless to say, I spent alot of time in the car! Now that they drive themselves to all the things that fill their days, I have more time to devote to gardening, developing recipes, and even, dare I say, sit and enjoy some down time! I have mentioned before, that I always try to eek out a small amount of “me time”, usually at the end of the day, just to relax and take in the beauty of the season. Be it strolling through the gardens or sitting out on the patio with a glass of rose. I offer this tip to you to do the same. Remember summer is fleeting, be sure to soak it all in!
