Friday Five: Dog Days of Summer

RevGalBlogPals Friday Five invites us to reflect about summer.

1. What is the weather like where you live?  
After many days of record heat and hazy days, and after a day of blessed rain, today is a clear, sunny day, with the high temp in the mid 70's.

2. Share one thing you love about this time of year.  
I love wearing light-weight clothes and not having to "suit up" (sweater, coat, hat, scarf, boots) before going out.

3. Share one thing you do NOT love about this time of year.  
I don't love that parishioners are "too busy" to come to church and "it's summer, dontcha know?" is considered an excused absence from our faith community.

4. How will you spend the remaining days leading up to Autumn?  
Weeding and watching butterflies and drinking iced tea.

5. Share a good summer memory.  
My dad, who was an assistant principal, was a lifeguard during the summer months and so I remember a lot of fun time spent in the neighborhood pool when I was a kid.

Bonus: What food says SUMMER to you?  Anything from the grill!

I like the idea of your dad, a principal, being a life guard in the summers!

Your current weather sounds so lovely. Thanks for stopping by my place.

It's nice to know that we are both blessed with left-handed daughters!

I do agree about the summer=vacation from church thing. Back in July, I had to find a week's worth of volunteers for this program we do 3x a year where homeless families live a week in our church, and it nearly made me crazy. Nobody wants to commit to much in the summer. Grr.

The butterfly watching and tea drinking til autumn sounds perfect!

The butterfly watching and iced tea, sound wonderful. The weeding? I'm afraid I gave up on that this summer, but I will begin relocating plants for next year soon.
