“At the end of summer we ask ourselves how many long afternoons and evenings did we savor? Or we should. How many seasonal pleasures did we seek and luxuriate in? How many summer tastes were not only indulged but encouraged?”
Sarah Ban Breathnach, Romancing the Ordinary

  1. My favorite sensual summer favorites are:

    Sitting in my rocking chair on the screened porch watching the birds eat at the feeders and enjoying the air from my newly installed fan.

    Digging my toes in the warm sand at the beach/

    Eating fresh watermelon and letting the juice ran down my chin.

    Watching thunderstorms roll in, all dark and cool, releasing rain to water thirsty plants.

    Enjoying my cat sleeping in the sunshine.

    That's enough, but thank you for encouraging this sharing of pleasurable moments:~)

  2. Rainer cherries....summer thunder....and rain......watermelon.....strolling down the street in a beach town and listening to gulls call back and forth....

  3. Sara--Wonderful list! Hope you get to enjoy them all multiple times this summer.

  4. Laure--Another good list. I love rainier cherries, too!
