It’s raining. After almost two months of glorious sun, heat and summer weekend bliss, it’s raining on a Saturday afternoon. But somehow it’s okay. After all, the trees and the garden have been waiting for a good downpour and it gives me an opportunity to post on my neglected blog. I haven’t found the time to post anything, mostly because I have been too busy enjoying the beautiful weather and the opportunities that summer provides. It felt like a bit of a waste of the beautiful days to be sitting at my lap top when I could be outside. So today’s rain is an opportunity. An opportunity to reflect on the simple pleasures of summertime.
So here is my list of moments of summer bliss:

Even left overs somehow taste better outside. Grilled vegetables and shrimp on pasta. Grilled asparagus. Cucumber salad with basil.
Frothy icy drinks from Starbucks:
Yummy. Especially after a long walk on a hot summer afternoon.
