The first 10 that came to mind

In no particular order, some particular summertime pleasures:
  1. Sleeping in
  2. Waking to birdsong
  3. Arnold Palmers (that is, ice tea and lemonade, mixed about half and half, over ice)
  4. Music from an ice cream truck
  5. Feeling lazy, and being lazy
  6. When the heat breaks, just before rain comes
  7. Grilling a simple dinner
  8. Badminton on the front lawn
  9. Sprinklers
  10. Staying up late to stargaze
I'm wondering what's on your list, and thinking about my friends on the other side of the world who are basking in their own particular wintertime pleasures at the moment....

May I play with just my favorite two?

1. All summer fruit, and most especially watermelon. And peaches! And plums!
2. After dinner walks while it's still very light out.
