Writer's Workshop--Summertime

Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop is up and running this week.
Mama's Losin' It
The Prompts:
1.) The Love List. Write a list of 50 things you look for in a man.
2.) Write a poem about a picture.
3.) What does your child do that reminds you most of yourself? How does it make you feel?
4.) Write a letter to whatever is stopping you from losing the extra weight you’d like to lose.
5.) What summer means to your family.

I chose number five.

What summer means to your family.

Summer means:
  • Hot days enjoying the sun.
  • Camping
  • Grilling on the back deck
  • Staying up late
  • Road trips
  • Having the windows open
  • Shorts--means less laundry or smaller loads.
  • Longer days
  • Spending time with friends outside--barbecue.
  • Less structure to the days
  • Eating watermelon, cherries, and fresh nectarines.
  • Relaxing at the lake--this is new for us as the lake finally has water again.
  • Red neck drive-in(setting up a small TV and DVD player on the back deck and watching movies.)
  • Bug spray
  • Grimy little boys after a day of fun.
That is some of what summer means to us here in our neck of the woods.
Go pick your own prompt and join up with the Writer's Workshop at Mama Kat's.

Love it....didn't know about this today, but my post kinda fits in with #3 in a round about sort of way.

LOL @ redneck drive-in!

Tracie said...

I love your redneck drive-in! We would get eaten alive by the mosquitos if we tried that though.

Stef said...

Are you my twin? I have the same list...well, I didn't post it, but in my head! I love summertime! Mostly watermelon...

That sounds like a pretty good summer to me! I'd add watching fireflies after dark, and running through the sprinkler.
