Happy - 6

Summer! Yep, that's right, summer in Phoenix makes me very happy.

I love the sunshine. I love the heat, especially in the early summer months when it is hot and dry. I love the monsoons, despite how destructive they can be. I love the thunder and lightning that is like nowhere else I have ever been.

And today summer gives me some specific happy things:

  • Finding a raft for floating in my pool, finally. Most places are clearing out their summer stuff and I had trouble finding anywhere that had them in stock - Osco came through.
  • Sunblock that smells like summer and beaches and relaxing - Banana Boat today, but I think Hawaiian Tropic usually works, too.
  • Aloe Vera straight out of the refrigerator.
  • Finding the sunless tanning lotion I like to use (Banana Boat, again) at the dollar store! Nice.

Always remember...Pool supplies and swim suits in December, gloves and mittens in July. I tried to find snowboarding gloves for my boys in January and they were done being sold for the season in several places I tried. You want a pool raft when it's 110 degrees outside? Please.
