Searching for that Silver Lining

We all know that every cloud has a silver lining.  Weary from the heat…but tired of complaining about it, I decided to list some the positive aspects, the things I like about this summer heat:

  • the ease and lack of fuss of getting dressed
  • the feel of the cool house tiles on my bare feet
  • the delight of cool showers
  • fantastic watermelon
  • fruit filled tall, iced Sangrias
  • the taste of just-picked succulent summer fruits

  • the bright light
  • the cloudless skies
  • the balmy evening breezes
  • the golden fields of wheat
  • the abundance of summer vegetables
  • jugs of iced cucumber green tea
  • wearing no make-up
  • cool linen sheets
  • peach prosecco
  • tomatoes
  • August – an entire month when nothing can get done in Italy!
  • the abundance of wonderful summer vegetables
