Sad to See Summer Go

Oh, hi there! So glad you stopped by for a visit.

The month of October is just around the corner, but still...I'm sad to see summer go. I like having the sunshine wake me up in the early morning. It just makes it so much easier to get up and get the day started. 

Don't get me wrong. There are lots of things I like about the fall season too. I like that the weather is not too hot and not too cold. We don't need the A/C or the heater (so that electric bill is mighty nice during this in between time). I like the colors of the leaves - how they change into pretty, rich colors. I like the chilly mornings and warm drinks. Yep, I even join the pumpkin spice craze a tiny bit and have at least one PSL before they disappear.

But there's something magical about summer. Long days, short nights - maybe less sleep time, but oh so worth it. 

Let me just share three things that I love about summer, before I officially say hello to fall season...

Summer Favorite No. 1

One of my most favorite things ever (even when it's not summer) is the cold sweet treats, like ICE CREAM. We went to the California State Fair and had DoleWhip for the first time.  Deeeeeeelish!!!

Root beer floats are always fun too. (This one is from Leatherby's Family Creamery in Elk Grove, a total kid fave.)

And, of course, we can't leave out the Fruit Freeze from Gunther's Ice Cream (another kid fave)! The one below is pineapple with vanilla ice cream and topped with strawberry. Sooooo good.

Summer Favorite No. 2

Awesome BBQs and fresh summer fruit from the farmer's markets! A BBQ always means quality family time. Definitely time well spent.

Summer Favorite No. 3

Even though they're shorter because the sunny days are longer, those summer nights are as good as gold.

So tell me, what is one of your most favorite things about summer season? Leave me a comment and share.

Summer? I loathe the sweaty season and I am always glad when she is kicked out the door.
And yes, I know I am in the minority.
Enjoy your autumn (but feel free to hang on to summer).

I love all the seasons, because there is a lot of great things in every of them. There was time when I love only spring and hate autumn, but for now I learn to love them all.
Summer is only great if you have vacationa and can spend the time near water - sea, ocean or pool. But if you need to go to work every day in the city - riding the metropolitan every day - it is kinda hell you know!
and you ask what I love about summer - yes, warm and long nights!
