Thank God for Vitamin D.
I love the hot summer days, when you can walk down the road and everyone is looking rosy cheeked and awfully sexy as they take off their shirts and walk bare chested towards you.
It's an excuse to perv long and hard at the glorious examples of humanity around us.
Sorry, just being honest. LOL. Don't tell me you don't window shop during the summer, when its all out there on display. Of course we do, it'd be almost wrong not too!
But seriously though, while the heat can be oppressive, and the over done tan can be painful, it is all good things about the summer that for a moment hide away the dark, depressing days of winter and give us strength to survive another year.
I've read and I think there must be some merit in the fact that the sunshine does us good. Maybe when its so hot that it fries a few too many brain cells its not that great, but all in all, its being able to take out the BBQ, spend time with mates out in the garden, venture into cool forests and go on long walks in the bright, fresh air. It's actually feeling warm enough to consider dipping a toe into the angry looking Atlantic, which despite the heat surrounding us is still bloody cold.
I learn to live again in summer. Maybe this is a Yettie thing, and I've just forgotten how to successfully hibernate through the winter. But whatever it is, I glad its here.
