summertime, and the livin’ is easy
fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high
oh your daddy’s rich and your ma is good-lookin’
so hush, little baby, don’t you cry
-ella fitzgerald, summertime
yep, it’s summertime and i’m on vacation, could living be any easier (hey to chandler bing :))!
sunday picnic is great for everyone who likes spending time in the green and near the water – and by water i mean any kind, seriously 🙂
this year i’m having a huge annual leave and i can’t tell you how much i looove the “i’m out of office” message which actually means “i really don’t care”!
i made a to do list to enjoy life-at-vacation (as if one needs anything else, but believe me they enhance my joy) and i’m trying to complete it step by step.
here is my list of delights, well i update the list all the time, but anywayyy:
wake up around 10 am (and not one minute sooner)
stretch in the morning and before you go to bed
meditate, meditate, meditate
go to swimming pool or beach every day
get sun, sun, sun (well tanned)
take walks along the seaside
drink wine (blushhh)
finish a book every two (or three) days
learn french (to read what derrida actually said)
cook a light summer meal every day
smoothies, smoothies, smoothies (watermelon and all the berries are my favorites, and mint and lemon, and, yes everything)
drink lots of water (with lemon, cucumber, mint)
try all the gym classes, pilates, tabata, bodypump, …
yoga, yoga, yoga
get massages, relax, spa
discover a new place to eat and drink
cheer up, laugh, laugh, laugh
picnic, picnic, picnic
check out the fall fashion
but buy what makes you happy to wear (like a white tee with a unicorn saying whatever)
spend more time with galpals 🙂
take good care of your hair
organize your wardrobe
dine fine 🙂
eat more fruits
see a movie every day
listen to jazz & blues
watch the sunset
that’s been such a long post!
well, so far so good, thank you summertime!
