However, winter lasted awhile this year so for now, I'm enjoying the warmer temperatures. I expect this to last all of three and a half minutes, so I figure I'll ride it out while I can.
We pretty much skipped spring - we go from chilly to humid here in Northern Virginia - and I already have a few summer favorites. Summer is about being flexible - less planning, more relaxing, and there are a few things that have already proven themselves up for the season.
*Sanuk flip flops - I have no idea how I've gone this long without knowing about these, but holy mother of fabulous. They are made from old yoga mats. Let me say that again. They are made out of old yoga mats. Recycling things for the environment and feeling like you're walking on clouds? Please and thank you.
|Why yes that is fabric under the strap so they don't hurt your feet. Genius.|
|I was looking at someone and didn't realize I took this picture. Then when I saw it later I couldn't stop laughing!|
|Yes, it is as good as it looks.|
1 can black beans
Corn from 4 cobs (I used 2 cans of corn and it was just as good)
2 avocados (she told me two avocados for every four cobs so if you're doubling this, keep that in mind)
1 pint/quart (whatever the small container at the store is) of tomatoes (I told you - so easy!)
*A good read (or two, or three) - I've found a few fun novels lately - light and easy, but good writing, and there's nothing better than something that makes you laugh while you're enjoying the sunshine. I'd recommend A Place at the Table by Susan Rebecca White, Vintage: A Novel by Susan Gloss, and Hope in a Jar by Beth Harbison. I'm currently reading And One Last Thing by Molly Harper - I'm only a hundred pages in, but it's already made me laugh out loud several times! (Also, little reviews of each of these over on my Goodreads).
What are some of your summer infatuations?
Happy almost Friday!
