And from the home of RevGals, here is this week's Friday Five..
1. Favorite summer food(s) and beverage(s)
Iced tea with fresh mint
Fruit salad with big chunks of watermelon
2. Song that "says" summer to you. (Need not be about summer explicitly.)
Summer Breeze by Seals and Crofts
3. A childhood summer memory
Endless car vacations with my family. I wanted to
The rest was lost on me, except for a few memories of museums (Chicago's Science and Industry, San Francisco's Exploratorium) and tourist attractions (The Gateway Arch in St. Louis stands out.)
4. An adult summer memory
Sunrise on the beach with friends -- always a very special moment. And summer in Northern California with the cool foggy mornings and warm afternoons...perfect!
5. Describe a wonderful summer day you'd like to have in the near future. (weather, location, activities)
I want to visit Provence, and enjoy the fruits of summer, sitting at a village cafe, talking, eating, taking in the surroundings...and finally, truly relaxing for the first time in I don't know when.
Optional: Does your place of worship do anything differently in the summer? (Fewer services, casual dress, etc.)
Less services, less formal, more music and discussion and new versions of worship
