What's that? Your not relaxing? Your weekends are filled with invitations to barbecues and parties?
Your kids are begging you to take them to the water park, the amusement park, the beach, the pool. Pretty much your kids are just begging you to take them someplace.
Routines are thrown off. Tempers get short in the heat.
And the back-to-school flyers are already showing up on your doorstep.
Where is the time to kick back with a tall glass of lemonade and read a good book while sitting in a hidden garden spot?
The time is now.
Find a book. Get a glass of lemonade. Or ice tea. Or ice coffee. Or whatever your summertime drink of choice is. Find a comfy spot. And read.
And tell me in the comments what you're going to read.
As for me, I've just finished Maureen Johnson's The Last Little Blue Envelope and I've been reading some F. Scott Fitzgerald short stories and am about to re-read The Great Gatsby.
