This Week’s Theme – Summer Fun

Welcome to the lazy, hazy days of August! As the temperatures soar and our bodies sear, I could not help but wonder:

  • Do you prefer to be indoors or outdoors on a hot summer day?
  • Poolside or park picnic – which invitation sounds more appealing?
  • What summertime activity do you dream of the most?

August is our last “official” month of summer – let’s make the most of it!

Have a fabulous Friendship Friday!

Have Fun!

Have fun connecting with one another – building friendships is what this community is all about!

    Hope this finds you well? I will be looking for guest bloggers for later in the month, while I ease my way back into the blogosphere. Hoping to be back on track soon.

      I’m actually recovering from a case of the summer sniffles that I picked up at the park!
      Hubby believes I spent too much time petting the dogs and got people germs on me!
      I hope you are doing well.
      I need to line up some guest bloggers and schedule some down time myself! 🙂

    If it’s not humid, outdoors…forget the pool, on a park bench…dreaming of kayaking with my eagles soaring above!…:)JP

  3. With the hot summer days, I will take a pool any day…especially since we have always had one and we don’t anymore. 🙁 Anything outside is great. Thank you for hosting.

      I used to love lounging by the water but I am now super sun and heat sensitive so while I love the outdoors – I have to hang in the shade and only be out on a fairly mild day!

      So far, our overall weather has been nice with just a few scorchers. I am praying the remainder of the summer is mild as well!

    Sorry about the sniffles. It may be pollen in the air. That gives me the sniffles. It is fine to pet the doge – – 🙂
    Thanks for hosting your lovely site.

      Thanks Hazel – finally starting to feel a little better though still dealing with fatigue!
      Hopefully I can kick this thing completely by the weekend!

      Enjoy your Friendship Friday! 🙂

  6. Hot and humid here in Florida — enjoying the thunderstorms (when we’re safely indoors) and the great effects of the rain on our flowers. Thanks for hosting & God bless!

  7. I am hoping for warmer weather in the month of August. We’ve had enough rain and cool nights!
    Great site BTW!

    I always enjoy being outside as much as possible during the warmer months. I like both swimming and park picnics, so this one is a tough choice. Swimming and boating are some of my favorite summertime activities!

    Thank you for the linky party! 🙂

  11. Do you prefer to be indoors or outdoors on a hot summer day?

    Both, but because of the heat, we stay indoors mostly now.

    Poolside or park picnic – which invitation sounds more appealing?

    Park Picnic – I can relax and read my book or chase the kids etc.

    What summertime activity do you dream of the most?
    Sleeping late 🙂

      I also prefer to be in a cool environment on a hot day!
      I’m blessed to live near a park where I can enjoy the outdoors.
      Hope you have the chance to sleep in all weekend, Colette! 🙂

    Happy (almost) Friday, my friend! Hope you have a fantastic weekend! I’m looking forward to enjoying the last official month of summer. Living in the hot & humid South – I definitely prefer the indoors during the summer days. Once the sun goes down, I do enjoy some quiet time on my patio with a good book and a tall glass of tea.

      Love your answer, Michelle – I also prefer to be in a cool environment on a hot summer day – but love those cool summer nights!
      Quiet time on the patio with a good book and a tall glass of iced tea sounds perfect!
      Have a fabulous weekend, dear friend!

    Do you prefer to be indoors or outdoors on a hot summer day?
    -Indoors (which kind of rots for my garden).

    Poolside or park picnic – which invitation sounds more appealing?
    -Anyplace with shade. The water park where we lived last had these lovely HUGE umbrellas…and if you didn’t get there first thing, you could forGET it! *lol*

    What summertime activity do you dream of the most?
    -Sitting in the armchair in the living room that is very, very close to the a/c.

    The older I get, the less tolerant my body seems to be of hot, humid conditions (in which we live).

    Thanks for the linky & theme! Have a wonderful weekend. I had problems earlier with your link, but I straightened it out finally. We’re good to go now! 🙂

    I love the heat, so it doesn’t bother me. Plus I enjoy being outdoors so much more.

  17. Lisa says:

    During the hot and humid days, I definitely enjoy the cool indoors, but there is nothing like a nice summer night on the front porch or patio. I enjoy both being poolside and having a nice picnic. My dream? To someday be able to afford an RV and take some memorable trips with the family. 🙂

  18. Chris says:

    Hi there and thank you!!

    I just realized that I never grabbed the HTML for your Fri hop…promise to do so later and post on ym sidebar…
    Hope all is well, friend!

    Take care and thank you again.

    This is my last month of Summer Vacation with my family. A bit sad but I get the most out of my summer vacation. ^_^
