Summer Bliss

 Hello everyone,
            I hope you are all enjoying these 'dog days of summer'. We had a hot weekend here again and as we are already into August-I want to enjoy these days as much as possible.
    Here is some of my summer bliss.
 Summer picnics
 Garden Teas
 Hanging out my laundry-love the fresh summer scents and watching it dry in the breeze.
 Love Sunday brunches with family.
 Beach Days-I need to squeeze in a few more soon!

This past weekend we went camping with some of our family. It was a lot of fun!

Working in the garden
What is your "Summer Bliss"?

Seems as you've enjoyed a good summer. Here it's mostly been very cold and rainy and I envy you your summer life, according to the pictures, lol. We've not been able to sit outside in the evenings without having lots of clothes on, and that's not enjoyable!!
Hope you have a nice day. Here it's rain again after a lovely weekend with sunny, warm weather.
Love Elzie

I love to pop in and see what you and your family are doing! The weather is there is perfect for outings. My husband and I visited Oregon in June and July where my son resides and enjoyed the coast, Williamette Valley and several valleys, plus the mountains and rivers. The weather was perfect. We are now back home in Texas where we are baking from the heat at over 100 degrees and staying under the air conditioner. I know the perfect weather will be back for our fall, winter and spring from October through June. Have a lovely summer! Pam

Hello Carolyn
My summer bliss is a mirror image of yours - time spent with family, at the beach and entertaining. We don't go camping any more as the family is growing up but I have fond memories of a few times.
Thanks for sharing so many beautiful photos.

Hi Carolyn,

I love looking at your Summer Bliss photos. Camping with your family sound like a lot of fun! Part of my recent summer bliss, were enjoyed this weekend with friends, at their lakeside cottage, gorgeous view over the lake and many sail boats passing by. We had a wonderful time there.

Have a nice day,

So much beauty, Carolyn! Looks like the quintessential summer with lots of outdoor activities and a beautiful garden and pond to enjoy around the clock.

My summer bliss is majorly sitting outside in our garden, too.

Have a lovely weekend ahead!
