Those Lazy Days of (almost) Summer

It’s feeling a bit like summer around the beach cottage and that  ‘lazy days of summer‘  feeling is in the air…thankfully!  After a long Winter and Spring the warmth and sun are welcomed with open arms around here.  It was nice seeing the white drapes blowing in the breeze today…there is something dreamy about the vision.  It’s even warm enough to leave the bedroom window open tonight so that we can feel the cool breeze and hear the surf.  This is definitely my favorite time of the year.  Here’s some of my favorite things about summertime. Enjoy!

Doing a whole lotta nothing…

Swimming in crystal clear waters…

 

 

 

Taking time to smell the flowers…

 

 

 

 

Wearing flip flops…

 

Just ‘being’ in the moment…

 

 

 

Napping in the sunshine…

Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of  Summer

-Artist: Nat King Cole
-peak Billboard position # 6 in 1963
-Words by Charles Tobias and Music by Hans Carste

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer

Just fill your basket full of sandwiches and weenies
Then lock the house up, now you’re set
And on the beach you’ll see the girls in their bikinis
As cute as ever but they never get ’em wet

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
You’ll wish that summer could always be here

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer

Don’t hafta tell a girl and fella about a drive-in
Or some romantic movie seen
Right from the moment that those lovers start arrivin’
You’ll see more kissin’ in the cars than on the screen

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
You’ll wish that summer could always be here

    Those photos really made me long for a summer vacation! The rocking chairs on the beach are my favorite! I can’t think of anything more peaceful than sitting there looking out over the water and feeling those ocean breezes! Beautiful post!

    Seeing the nice weather and the flowers bloom is enough for me right now.

    PS I gather you changed your blog host, is there a way to leave comments without having to do the name, email and site thing each time?

    I love all your summer ideas. I would add the sounds of summer…kids playing, birds singing, and frogs ribbiting…lol…I can’t quite think what to call the sound frogs make, but I like it!

    Summer…temperature-wise, it’s almost year-round. But time-wise, I seem to change my pace mid-May…everything slows down…I spend a lot of time in the pool running in the water and floating. I also sit on the patio in my favorite spot, watching and listening to the birds, reading, and napping. That’s my favorite time of day…And when the neighbor’s parrots start squawking, it sounds like a tropical rain forest. It’s heavenly! When things get too crazy, I head to the beach…all I even have to do is LOOK at the water, and I am calm. (Thank goodness it’s only 5 miles away!)
    Have a wonderful day…

    Well, it looks at though you posted pics of many of my favorite summer things, right down to the pink lemonade. I’ll add a picnic basket, cold watermelon and shade. Yep, I do love to find a nice shady spot to spread out my blanket.

    Summer countdown has begun, only 17 days to go! WooHoo!
