In the Summertime, #998


Summer Selfie

Ahhhhh, summer!  I live in the desert where it’s a gazillion degrees outside and the closest body of water is a day trip away.  It doesn’t matter though – summer is still summer.  Days by the pool and grilling on the BBQ never get old.  Our kids have pool side play dates, and man…I’ll tell you…put a kid in water & they’re happy!

I feel like writing an ode to summer today, because a few hours in my own pool on a Sunday is enough to recharge me for the week.  It’s like being on vacation even though I never left home.  It’s amazing how little it takes to get relaxed.  Too bad I don’t do it more often.

So…the simple point of this blog is just to say:  Summer, I love you!

Enjoy Mungo Jerry’s “In the Summertime” as my song of the day, because “in the summertime, the air is right!”


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
