The Perfect Summer Day

Sunday, August 11, 2013

My husband and I had the perfect day yesterday!  We both packed up sandwiches, snacks and drinks and headed early to the beach.  My daughter did not come because she went to stay at a friend's house for the weekend.  It felt so good to be at the beach together and I read some of my book The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani and magazines and my husband read the newspaper.  We were not able to go swimming because the water was too cold but it felt so good to sit and watch the ocean and just relax.  Here is what our perfect day looked like.






Now don't you all feel relaxed just looking at all these pictures?  Here are pretty flowers that I saw when I was walking my dog Bosco last night.  Soon there will be fall flowers planted and the season will change.

I feel a little sad because soon summer will be over and my daughter will be going back to school.  I do love the way everything is so care free in the summer, don't you?  I hope your weekend was as nice as mine.

NOTE:  I have a friend, Ali Campbell who is a crochet teacher in England and she is talented and teaches crochet in UK terminology in her classroom and an eLearning course.  Well now she will be teaching the eLearning course for US the basics in US terminology.   If you are interested in learning to crochet I suggest you take a look at her blog.  She has many students that are happy and you will learn from her and be hooked in no time.  Take a look at Ali Campbell's blog Hooked!! A Crochet Addict's Blog.

I am on Twitter, Ravelry and Pinterest.  My username is @brklynhousewife.  Please don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin too!  All of my crochet/knit creations and recipes are on my Pinterest Boards, so please have a look there also.  

Thanks everyone and enjoy.

  1. Just putting your toes in the sand is enough to make it a perfect day Julie. Glad you got away for a relaxing day. You will miss your daughter. Glad she's been there with you for the summer.

  2. Hi Julie,

    A day at the beach, toes sunk in sand, the sniff of sea air and your sweetheart beside you...sounds pretty perfect to me!

  3. Dear Julie...what I wouldn't give to hear the sound of the waves and feel of sand between my toes again! It has been forever since the last time I've been to a beach...and I was born surrounded by the waters of the Pacific and Atlantic at the same time! Beautiful post...you made me long for home! Thank you for sharing and for visiting my blog! I truly appreciate it! Have a blessed week!

  7. I so want to get to the beach and feel the sand between my toes! What a lovely place to spend the day! I wouldn't have gotten much reading done! But that's a good book, isn't it? Sweet hugs!
