Summer- MM

(Org post date 6-08)
Summer to me is:

Let me just say that I loved this meme....
With all this talk of summer, I cannot help but break out into song...this one from 1972....sing along if ya know it....
See the curtains hangin' in the window, in the evenin' on a Friday night.
A little light a-shinin' through the window, lets me know everything is alright.
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind.
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind.
See the paper layin' in the sidewalk, a little music from the house next door.
So I walked on up to the doorstep, through the screen and across the floor.
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind.
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind.
Sweet days of summer, the jasmine's in bloom. July is dressed up and playing her tune.
And I come home from a hard day's work, and you're waiting there, not a care in the world.
See the smile a-waitin' in the kitchen, food cookin' and the plates for two.
See the arms that reach out to hold me, in the evening when the day is through.
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind.
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind.

Gosh Leigh! That was definitely a packed summer post! The wine cooler though... I just found out that I can't drink them any more. Makes my Gall Bladder act up. Gosh that makes me feel OLD.


Travis said...

Now that's some summer!

jennyhope said...

you must seriously be one busy lady with lots of energy!!

PAT said...

Hello Leigh
I'm doing some visiting before we leave for the lake tomorrow afternoon. I'm trying my best to get down my blog list and also visit folks who have commented. I could sure use one of those wine coolers right about now!

You've captured summer, beautifully with your photos! Good ol' summertime!
Have a great week!

The Troll said...

Wow. Great vivid original pics. Especially blown-up. I think you captured nearly all the great things about Summer.

Happy Mute MondayQ!

HEWY said...

I love the slow-mo slip and slide shot and the cool signature at the end of your post!

Leigh said...

Jenn-summer's are always busy, but in a good way. You are a mom of three-you know what I mean. As for the wine cooler, I am not saying anything about being old. We are the same age. I hope you can at least indulge in a Pina Colada!


Jenny-LOL! I try.

Pat-OH! I hope you have a great vacation at the lake. Thanks for stopping into visit me. Stop by the convienence store on the way outta town and stock up. Happy 4th!

Troll- I am just glad that I didnt put any on of me to blow up. LOL! That'd be scary! Happy MM!

Hewy-Thanks. Leave it to Big Daddy-he's really a big kid. Regarding my cool signiture at the end...that is my new thing, go here:

It's free. LOVE IT. SO many people have them. I try by best to be cool too. I am such a wanna be.

Leigh, this is just wonderful. I love the simplicity of the subjects but the depth of their portrayal of the best season of the year! Happy MM!

Tammy said...

Ohhhhh, I just love all those photos. They are truly screaming "SUMMER"!

Me and my crew are headed to the Redneck Riviera in a couple of weeks. I cannot wait! I am praying for NO rain for the week! :-)

Leigh said...

Thursday Next- Thankyou. You are always such a sweetie.

Tammy- Thanks! Hey, email me on my profile. I was going to ask you something but not pubically.

Kelly Jene said...

People at Mute Monday are complaining that they can't access your blog.

Surely you are going to tell us what kind of wine cooler you were drinking???

What a fun meme! Love your summer time! Fun Fun!

The Roaming Southerner said...

Awesome pics Leigh...I am missing my quintessential southern summer.

Oh, and the blog looks great!

Bunny said...

Excellent summer images! The wine cooler picture made me think of drinking the real thing on the beach, back before they all became malt beverages -I can drink wine, but not malt beverages, so I can't have coolers anymore :-(

Happy MM and I hope your summer is fantastic!

Mrs. Jules said...

One of my mother's favorite records..we used to listen to Seals & Crofts everyday! Delightful memories... you're gonna make me cry...loved the sunny pictures, especially those of the ocean. I'm aching to get some outdoor sunshine, we just have to be a little careful with all of the Cali fires.

giants fan said...

makes me long for a piece of watermelon and some lemonade!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I think you hit all the notes, looks like summer to me-enjoy!

Red Couch Recipes said...

Your pictures are so great and really capture the essence of family fun during the summer! I especially love the pic of your son and the watermelon. Also love the pic of the sand castle! Joni

Christie said...

All of these are lovely summertime pictures! Love the little fella' with his watermelon and love the song at the end! My favorite...could stare at it all day is the feet facing the water holding the wine that one just takes me a way to a beautiful place!! Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Jacqueline said...

Makes me feel fine looking at your fun summer memories. What a darling family. Keep having fun the rest of the summer and thanks for sharing.

The Tablescaper said...

Wow! That is one packed post of summer!!! Hard to pick a favorite - maybe relaxing on the beach with the wine cooler or the black and white of the swing. Just fabulous.

Thanks so much for being a part of Summer Sundays. Looking forward to seeing you next Sunday.
