Ten Things About Summer

What will I miss about summer this year? That's a good question. When you ask this of someone who is more of a fall/winter person as I am, an answer requires much thought. If you want a list of TEN things that I'll miss about summer, answers become nearly impossible.

However, since I'm usually up for a challenge, I decided to give it a go.

Here's my list of 10 things I'll miss about summer (when and IF it ever gets the heck out of here):

1. The heat. No. I won't miss the heat at all. Unfortunately, the oppressive summer heat stays with us down here in Charleston until somewhere around the end of October.

2. The tourists. Ha! No, I won't miss them either. While I realize I live in a tourist area, I have never learned to appreciate the heavy traffic and high prices that accompany life in this beautiful, appealing part of SC. Hey, at least it's not as bad as Myrtle Beach.

3. Bugs. Just kidding. I NEVER miss bugs. NEVER. They are annoying as hell and I hate them all. Well, except for ladybugs. I like ladybugs. And lightening bugs. And cicadas.

4. The humidity. NO. Breaking out into a sweat just walking from my front door to my car because of the humidity? No way. I NEVER miss the humidity when it's gone. And it can never go away fast enough.

5. The combination of heat and humidity. Which leads to frizzy bangs. Nope. The heat and humidity combination required of our summers wreak havoc on my poor hair. I never miss frizzy hair.

6. Watermelon. YES! Oh how I LOVE watermelon. It's one of the few things I love about summer. I ate so much this summer that I thought I might actually turn into a watermelon.

7. 20-30 something year old males running without shirts. YES! Who doesn't? This is one reason that having a long run of warm weather is a good thing.

8. The beach. No. No matter what the season, the beach is only 3.1 miles from my front door. That's one thing I have access to year 'round. Though I do appreciate it much better in the fall and winter. The beach is perfect then as it's low on heat and people.

9. Flip flops. Yes and no. I won't miss them until it gets too cold to wear them and that doesn't happen for a few months yet. Sometimes we get to wear them all the way into November!

10. No school. Yes! I will miss not having to go to school everyday. Though I miss my wonderful co-workers and the students during the two month break from school, I do not miss having to go to school every day.

Ok, it's your turn! What will y'all miss about summer?


  1. Oh well, let me tell you what I'll miss, mine's a long list though, get ready....
    1. THe heat, I love it. We have dry heat in the desert which is much better, but the temperature routinely hits around 100. Still I love it.
    2. Going for a ride early in the morning or late in the evening.
    3. Taking a shower at any time of the day or night to cool off, and taking a shower in the early morning and not freeze to death.
    4. Tanning, I love to get dark in the summer, and can't stand my skin in the winter, I look like a cracker....
    5 Summer fruit, especially grapes and peaches
    6. Going to the beach in SD. Even if we still go in winter, it's just not the same thing.
    7. Wearing cute summer clothes and cute shoes
    8. Going without makeup when I'm tanned
    9. Late evenings spent on the front porch
    10. Drying my hair in the sun, no hairdryer needed..

    I could go on....:)

  2. It is always summer in Florida. ;)

  3. Alessandra- Love your list. I would miss the cute summer clothes too if I could fit into them. LOL

    Terri- Yes it is!

  4. I don't want to think about Summer ending YET!...:)JP
