From this Side of the Pond

1. Saturday marks the first official day of summer! Whoohoo! Your favorite thing about the season?

No snow on the back deck.

2. Love it!, labor of love, not for love or money, no love lost, love handles, love does, love-hate relationship, misery loves company, tough love, love will find a way...pick one and tell us how it applies to your life right now.

Labour of love: a new book out this week. It's a labour of love because I've been working on this project for almost two decades.
3. What's one thing currently causing you to seethe? One thing currently making you smile?

Seethe: plenty of stuff, but this isn't the place to unpack it.

Smile: Also plenty of stuff. Getting my hair cut yesterday was a Good Thing. Ending the procrastination on hemming a pair of summer pants was another. I think I can I think I can. (I'm wearing them today.)

4. Of the following to-dos found on a summer checklist (here) which three would definitely make your personal list of summer want-to-dos?

roast marshmallows over a fire, go berry or peach picking, dangle your feet off the end of a dock, sit on a porch swing, watch the sunset from a beach, nap in a hammock, go barefoot in the grass, collect seashells, play tennis, go fishing, build a sandcastle, catch fireflies, eat a soft serve ice cream cone, make a pitcher of Sangria, swim in a lake, stargaze, ride a bike, paddle a canoe or kayak, make a summer road trip, throw a frisbee

Sitting on the sand at Lake Huron would be nice. Beach pebbles, maybe, not seashells.

Do you make an actual list?

No, I take summer as it comes.

5. Thursday is National Splurge Day. What might you splurge on in order to celebrate?

Splurging to celebrate splurging? That's a first.

I saw a cottage-shaped tea set at an antiques market that I would have liked to splurge on; maybe another time.

A cottage shaped tea set sounds cute. I love pretty tea cups and pitchers. Enjoy the no-snow on the deck! One of the reasons we retired in the southland : )

No snow is definitely one of the best things about summer :)
