April 1, 2009
after teasing us with only one warm week in the middle,
march went out like a lion. and left us with snow. 
rather rude of it, if you ask me.
it almost ruined perfectly laid plans for no more snow days.
but never mind that. april is here. yay.
sweet april. so promising. so full of easter candy.
today the sun is trying to burn through the clouds. 
come on, mr. golden sun. 
please shine down on me.
please make the car nice & toasty when it sits outside.
please make me wear sunglasses & flip flops.
please make me.. dare i say it.. sweat. ugh.
please make our house warm enough to finally turn the heat off.
please melt the snow.
please make me give up my slippers.
please make blankets a thing of the past.
please make picnics a possibility.
please make the flowers grow instead of freeze.
and please, if you have a chance, put some color in my cheeks.
your devoted admirer who misses you dearly,
summer

I LOVE chicken salad on croissants. Do you have a good recipe? Love your list.

I love your posts...and even though I'm often more of an autumn person, I'm crazy about the sun right now. It's actually shining today, and it is SO beautiful! I really want warm weather to come and stay this year.

I am praying for warm weather, too. This snow has GOT to go.

I like April because it's my anniversary month. AND spring comes in April. It seems like the world comes alive in spring--I love that.

I still really like your list.

With such a sweet note to the sun, how could it not make an appearance for a sweet girl like you? And such fabulous items on your list!

April has borough the same wintry weather here--we have gotten 30" of snow this week!

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
