Friday Five - Dog Days of Summer

It's that time again! Another thrilling installment of the Friday Five! The original author of this post is writing from Wisconsin, and speaks of these hot, humid, miserable days as though they are a new phenomenon. And perhaps, for her, they are (at least this year). However, not so much here!

  1. What is the weather like where you live? - Miserably hot, humid, and not nearly enough rain.
  2. Share one thing you love about this time of year. - Probably the ice cream truck coming through the neighborhood.
  3. Share one thing you do NOT love about this time of year. - The power bill required to run the air conditioner to even keep the place liveable (and I'm still hot, sweaty, sticky, and gross!)
  4. How will you spend the remaining days leading up to autumn? - Inside! Trying new recipes, getting stuff organized, trying to get some more sleep, and possibly getting a few new clothes.
  5. Share a good summer memory. - From this summer, I guess it was our trips to the beach. Nothing in particular except getting to spend time with people I love doing absolutely nothing and staring at the ocean!
Bonus - What food says "summer" to you? - Homemade ice cream! I don't why we are never inspired to make homemade ice cream in the winter (because goodness knows we eat enough of it no matter what the weather!) but we usually aren't.


  1. We have an ice cream truck too, and I wonder if I will ever actually go out and get some ice cream from it, or simply enjoy that it comes around.

  2. sharing about the ice cream truck was a definite summer memory for me too ~
    and as i live nearby a school, it's heard
    a lot !
