Summer Home Atmosphere

This is the third in a series of postings on how I think about the atmosphere of our home in a seasonal manner. If you’d like to read the first posting, Winter Home Atmosphere, click hereor the second posting, Spring Home Atmosphere, click here.
 

In my mind, each season has an atmosphere all its own, and that atmosphere spills over to: the kitchen, touches of beauty and comfort, and our activities. Here is how I am thinking about this summer:


Summer

Fun. Free Time. Fresh. Food. Green.

The Kitchen:
- berries
-grilling
-corn
-tomatoes
-herbs
-ice cream
-salsa from the garden
-cobblers
-frosty, fruity, and/or sparkling drinks

Touches of Beauty and Comfort:
-air conditioning
-sunflowers on the table and in the windowsill
-cool breezes from open windows
-crisp, cool sheets on balmy summer nights
-did I mention air conditioning?

Activities:
-houseguests
-evenings on the deck
-resting in the hammock
-beach and lake days
-gardening
-preserving all that’s homegrown, fresh, and local
-school planning
-new grandbaby!
