Not Yet!

Today is the first day of summer. Summer means that I will not wear socks until September. Sweet sun tea runs through my veins. Every evening, I spend at least 30 minutes sweating while watering flowers. We grill out. Make homemade ice cream. Marvel at how late it stays light. I go to the Farmer's Market. Decorate for the 4th of July. We slap at mosquitoes while visiting with friends outside. I love summer. Love it love it love it. The thing I do not do in the summer is SHOP FOR CHRISTMAS! On Saturday, I went to Hobby Lobby. And the aisles? Filled with Christmas! I like Christmas, I do, but I have no intentions of celebrating it for 6 months out of every year! No, no, no.

I am SO with you on this one. Someone on our street had their Christmas tree up, decorated, and lit in mid October last year - - - whatever happened to Halloween and Thanksgiving????

I, too, are with you on this one. We got flyers yesterday at summer school to pass out to the kids. They were for having lunch with Santa. "Christmas in July come meet and eat with Santa and ask him all your questions before the winter rush" Ridiculous!!
