Top 10 list of Things that would make me happy in the summer

I had high hopes for a summer filled with lazy (and I mean lazy) days by the pool. We’ve had some great days, but it haven’t been as lazy as I anticipated.  So, in the spirit of my dream lazy day, I present to you 10 things that would make my laziest day the best lazy day of the summer.

  1. Sunshine.  With temperatures in the high 80’s.
  2. Sleeping in.
  3. Not having to feed or remind anyone of their REGULAR schedule….like making their beds, brushing their teeth, etc.
  4. Lounging all day with a really good book.
  5. Having all of my meals brought to me.
  6. Being able to take a cat nap in the sun.
  7. Swimming.  A lot.
  8. Quarts of ice water.
  9. Having my house cleaned for me.
  10. A date with the hubs at sunset.

What about you?  What 10 things would you require for the perfect day?

    Oh yeah, that sounds wonderful! I could deal with a day like that too. Of course, with an almost 5 year old — I never get a lazy day. But one of these days, I’ll long to be busy with a little one under my feet again.

    Enjoy your Thursday!

    That sounds like a perfect lazy day to me! I can’t wait to get back to the pool this weekend. It’s been too chilly to go all week.

    That sounds so good. I would just want to add some time with happy, pleasant children who get along and enjoy the time together in that plan and I am there.:)

    We spent every day in the pool all through June but now we are beset with rain and cooler temperatures this week and the forecast shows another week ahead of storms. So what would make me really happy right now is for the sun and heat to come back and let us have our lovely afternoons in the pool! I am really missing them and so is my daughter. Pool days feel like vacation days.

    Minus the swimming I’m totally with you. I don’t like to swim. Probably because I suck at it and only do it in emergency situations.

    That sounds just about perfect! I couldnt ask for anything better……well, maybe if it were two straight days or even weeks of it!

    Wow, just reading that list makes me happy! Couldn’t agree more with it! I’d say that would make a great birthday or Mother’s Day request/gift.

    I love this post idea. I usually do a daily list of 7 things I am grateful for, and love this one for summer. I would just be happy to sit on a wood deck, overlooking a beautiful river, set amongst the pine trees on a cool day enjoying a glass of ice tea watching the world go by.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat
