Summer's finally here

Current music: Colbie Caillat

I have been really sick lately, stuck in bed. Today I got a sudden burst of summer/energy/spontaneity. What triggered this, I believe, is the BLT's that mom made for dinner. I enjoyed some iced tea with it. All I was missing was some juicy watermelon. Then it would have been the perfect summer meal. Do you have one of those meals? Like a good ol' backyard BBQ with potato salad, hot dogs, corn-on-the-cob, etc, that just makes you feel summer in your bones. Well today was one of those.

So following the meal I called up a few friends to pull a spontaneous drive around the lake nearby. No response. So I gathered my country CD and rocked it to the lake. Unfortunately, I couldn't do the windows down because of the 147% humidity or whatever it is here. I landed at my favorite spot at the lake which I vow never to go alone because of the isolate area. But I needed fresh air, alone time, and spontaneity quick so I toughed up and went.

This particular area is a dock where all the sail boats are stored. It's one of the very few places in Blue Springs that I have found that can make you feel like you are not actually in Blue Springs. Wonderful.

So after I dripped my face off, I enjoyed a good phone call with a very good friend of mine. Don't you love it when you are thinking about calling someone and at that very moment that person calls you first? Again, wonderful. This person is a dear friend of mine and I never cease to be a better Liz when I am finished talking with him.

I concluded the evening with watching "Designstar" with my mom. Now I don't normally enjoy television in the slightest bit. But the show was very intriguing. I forget how much I like watching HGTV. Lord have mercy that was awful to type. I will not read it over again for I might blush and delete.

It was also one of those days where I laughed a lot. Feels good.
