  1. My best summer time pleasure is going to county fairs and tractor pullss!!! Yes, I’m a country girl all around!!! I love that stuff!!!

  2. a guilty pleasure humm well thats kind aeasy lazing about in the airconditioning reading books or going to a swimming hole and swimming tho i do the reading more then the swimming me and the sun dont get along

  3. My guilty summertime pleasure is sitting outdoors with a big bowl of cherries and eating them all myself, spitting the seeds across the lawn.

    If I happen to have some ice cream with it, that’s even guiltier!

    I introduced my toddler son to cherries today and he likes them as much as I do, so I think I might have to sneak my cherry fix in future.

  4. I love sitting outdoors in my garden with a cup of coffee and some chocolate, reading and forgetting everything else…

  5. These are so great. When I was a kid, my dad and I would have watermelon for dessert just about every night and it always, always involved a contest to see which of us could spit their seeds the farthest–well, once my mother went upstairs, anyway. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Swimming and eating watermelon and cantaloupe. I love the summer. It’s the only time I get to eat those and garden tomatoes.
    Have a Happy 4th.

  7. I have to go with eating watermelon as my summer pleasure or swimming. Not terribly original. LOL

  8. Kimmy, I *love* cantaloupe. Actually, it’s my fav melon and possibly overall fav fruit.

    As for ice cream, KH’s fav, rocky road is always tasty. I usually get my fix via the Mister Softee truck–small vanilla soft-serve (boring but I like it). When I do step it up, I love peppermint stick (so refreshing) or butter pecan–because if you’re going to have high fat, high cal ice cream, might as well ramp it up with buttah, too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. My summertime pleasure is reading.I don’t know what it is about the weather, but summertime really brings out the bookworm in me ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. I know what you mean, Chelsea. Some of my fondest summer memories growing up aren’t of being outside but inside: doing a belly flop over my grandmom’s bed reading romance novels.

  11. My absolutely most favourite summer activity in the whole wide world is getting a novella accepted for publication such as I got notification of this morning!!! I’m so excited I can’t even be bothered how to say this in a grammatically correct way! WHEEEEEE!
