Friend Makin' Mondays...



Hi Everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

It is time again for another FMM! You can go Here to get the rules and such.

I got this idea from my friend Marci's blog.

This week's task is to tell us 10 things you love about summer!!!

So here I go:

1. I love swimming! Not laying on a raft in the pool, but actually swimming around in the pool, sometimes I even wear those big dorky goggles so I can see where I'm going. I also love to do tricks off the diving board. Love it!

2. I love how the days are longer and it just seems like you have more time to do things.

3. I love vacations!

4. I love to take jars outside and catch fireflies in them.

5. I love how it feels and looks right before the sun goes down in the summer. It's my favorite part of the day and the best time to be outside!

6. I love corn on the cob grilled on the grill!

7. I love family cookouts!

8. I love driving with all the windows down with the music turned up really loud and just cruising!

9. I love all the fresh fruit! I could eat my weight in it hourly! Watermelon, blueberries, strawberries, honey dew melon-I could go on and on! Not to mention eating fresh out of the garden tomatoes like they were an apple! Yum!!!

10. I love how the hubby has the whole summer off and just gets to be with us!

What's your favorite things about Summer?!


Mr. Linky is giving me lots of grief. If you are
participating please be sure to leave me a comment telling us.
Then we can just get to your blogs via your comments. Thanks!!!

Great task, and great answers! I am ALL about driving with the windows down and the radio cranked up!

Makes me feel young again! (or maybe that's just wishful thinking?)

Have an awesome week!

I purposely wrote my answers first before reading yours, and we definitely love many of the same things!

My list is up at alltheweigh.info!

I love FMM! :)

Creekmore's said...

Okay - so funny! The couple I saw was in a black car. So not you, but how funny that you were there.

We did have a great trip. We spent all day Friday downtown going through the shops. We ate lunch at Mudd St. Cafe (very good) and Ermilio's which we love. Saturday we ate lunch at Sparky's, we've eaten there several times. We ate dinner at the Angler Grill because it was close to where we were staying and it was actually pretty good. We were going to eat at the Rowdy Beaver today, but neither of us were hungry when we left town. We felt like we had eaten all weekend. We had taken a bag full of snacks and didn't even open any of it the whole weekend. Eureka is such a neat - and strange - town. LOL Some of the people there are very interesting! And of course bikers everywhere. But it's a fun place to go.

I did FMM and I think it posted to Mr. Linky. If not, here's my link:
