    Hello. :wave3:

    It's such a nice day here today. 27C, warm and sunny with a slight breeze. Birds and cicada singing, butterfly fluttering about the flower beds. I'm so glad summer is here and we have a whole 2 weeks before the monsoon is supposed to hit us.

    :hyper:

    What is your favourite summer activity?

    I love being able to take my breaks outside on the deck. I work from home, so any tea or lunch breaks give me a chance to sit outside, admire the greenery and catch up with the kitties.

    I also like day trips to the coast or up into the mountains for a walk. It's definitely the season for being outdoors.

    As long as it's not too hot, I like taking long walks along the river or in the forest.

    Summers here are long, hot & humid. We do not spend much time outdoors so I'm not sure how to answer this one. Avoiding the heat & humidity? :lol: :sweat::sweat::sweat:

    The fave activity I'd like to do: be on a boat or beach daily
    The activity I actually do: read on the deck, walk to town as I'm only 2 blocks away. Eat my lunch on he deck.

    Spending time with my pony, Collie, and walking with my dog, Leah. Neither can happen as often as I'd like, but they're definitely my two favourite things to do in the summer :cloud9:

    My husband and I like to go camping. Granted we only go a couple of times a year. We don't have a ready packed trailer that we can just pull around every weekend, we have to bring all our gear, and set everything up. A weekend trip is not worth the amount of time spend packing and setting up and taking down, putting away, etc...

    I agree with you. I can't take the heat and humidity. I stay inside.

    In the kitchen
    As I get older, I'm having trouble dealing with the humidity. I like to garden, doing some weeding, but now I try to do it in the morning and later on in the evening.

    Once we open the pool, I'll be doing some floating around (notice I did not say "swimming") in the pool. I like to listen to music while just floating around. When I get too hot, I flip into the water, then get back on my lounge for a while. It's very relaxing. I used to get up in the morning, get my chores done, make something for dinner, and throw it into the fridge. Then spend the day in the pool.

    My favorite thing is going to the beach in town. But I don't do it very often because my pale skin burns to a crisp. One thing I love about Upstate NY is that there are no sharks in the water. At least I've never seen one. :paranoid:

    When the weather turns warm and summer begins I like to head out to the different farmers' markets as well as go to some of my favorite art fairs. I'm not a fan of heat or humidity but I am a walker so walking early or later in the day works best. :walk:

    Oh yeah, I forgot about fairs. I love going to the NY State Fair and the county fairs. I love seeing the animals there. :loveeyes:

    It's a toss up between going swimming or hiking.

    I like being able to have coffee and breakfast on the porch. And other drinks in the afternoon. After the middle of June it is 90 and 90% humidity so I only go out early morning and later in the evening

    The thing I like not doing is having to bundle up to go anywhere

    i can't say i have a favorite thing to do during the summer months. i do love to be outdoors doing things though. and it doesn't matter much what i do outdoors -- anything from mowing the lawn, to stacking firewood. :D

    My hobby is metal detecting and every morning all summer long I go to the lake at 6:00 am and wade through the water for two hours looking for coins and jewelry dropped the water. It is a quiet and beautiful time of the day and excellent exercise.

    I don't like summer, but I like being able to go for walks without worrying that I'm going to slip on ice.
