It's Summer !

I here by officially declare it Summer. There are three "benchmarks" for the beginning of Summer; Memorial Day, school letting out with graduations, and June 21st which is Thursday. I love this time of year. The whole Summer lays before you. However, this year it will not be a "lazy" summer for the Wickre's. We are putting in new carpets in our house on all three floors and two stairs which involves moving everything and we have accumulated a lot of stuff over the years. Also, we are doing a lot of repainting both outside and inside before the carpet men arrive. We are putting in new counter tops in the kitchen and bathrooms and are redoing the master bath. Our son will be home for a few weeks around July 4th and we will be celebrating the 4th in Ashland and his birthday thereafter. In order to get rid of some of our "stuff," which we have spent weeks sorting, we are having a big garage sale in July. In August we are going on a vacation of a life time but I will talk about that when we get back. I love Summer! Have some ice Tea. Picture above is from the movie "A Summer Place" (1959) with Troy Donahue and Sandra Dee. A cheesy movie but a great song by The Letterman that always reminds me of Summer.
