This week’s post idea comes from the blog Things I Can't Say via Mama Kat’s writing prompts.
As of 5:00 Friday, I’m on vacation for two weeks; no alarm clock, no commute, just going where the wind blows us. Woo !
Proudly watching my kids play soccer, enjoying the cool evening breeze on the sidelines after a day in the office.

Shark Week, ending with watching Jaws with The Boy and my SIL.
My air conditioner, without which I would be one sleepless, cranky bitch. Enough said.
My friend/coworker’s sixtieth birthday celebration where I got to see friends I hadn’t seen in a while, have several drinks (, vodka….) and eat some good food.
|Birthday boy at the head of the table, of course!|
Speaking of coworkers – my coworkers who make the long days better with their warmth and goofiness.
I got the coolest gadget this month that cores a pineapple right in its skin while cutting it into rings, not letting the juice escape all over a cutting board. I love a new gadget!

My little cherry tomato plant, chives and pepper plant on my balcony that I have somehow managed to not kill. My black thumb is not up to par this summer……

Saturday morning with my paper and my tea. Yeah, I know, not strictly a summer thing but it makes me smile anyway.
Did I mention that I’m on vacation a day from now? Oh yeah, I did…… well it deserves a second spot on my list because it gives me the biggest smile of all! Besides, it’s my list so I can do what I want with it, !
What has made you smile this summer?
