Time for this week’s Share Your World from Sparks From A Combustible Mind.


Here are her questions for the week:

Now I realize that everyone doing SYW doesn’t live on this side of the world and on the other side of the world it’s now winter.   So substitute, if you’d like and if it’s more appropriate, “winter” for summer and answer the questions that way.   🙂

Are you a Summer person?   A Winter person?   Or one of the other seasons suits you best?

Absolutely!  I love spring and fall…winter, not so much.  But, summer is the best.

What is your favorite summer time clothing?   

Swim trunks.

Do you find yourself eating out more during the summer?  Or making ‘cold food’ like salads and stuff you can heat in the microwave?

I prefer lighter foods in summer, and less food in general.

Do you like watermelon?   What’s your favorite summertime treat?

I’m not a watermelon fan, no.  My favorite summer treats, in terms of fruit, are strawberries and peaches.  Honestly, there’s not much better than biting into a ripe peach, and subsequently being covered in juice.

Are you thankful it’s finally (sorta) dry and warm?

Well, it’s been rainy in these parts for the better part of 18 months, so, yeah, a respite from the rain is welcomed.  And, though it has been scorching hot, it sure beats freezing.


My songs of the day are:

“Hot Wax” by King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

“Old Dogs, Children, And Watermelon Wine” by John Prine

”Grapefruit-Juicy Fruit” by Jimmy Buffett

”Feels Like Summer” by Childish Gambino

“Too Hot” by Chaka Khan

“Watermelon Time In Georgia” by Levon Helm

”Swim Good” by Frank Ocean

”Summer Breeze” by Seals & Crofts

  1. Will you get some of the rain from Barry? Hope NOLA doesn’t flood too bad. I’m with you on the peaches, but I recently learned the secret to the very best watermelon.

    • Not sure about Barry. We aren’t even at home right now. On vacation right now. Didn’t look like New Orleans had too much trouble. Upriver is a concern, for the entirety of the Mississippi Valley. And, what’s the perfect watermelon secret? 😃

  4. I admit to chortling when I read the band called “King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard” BWAHAHAHAH!! I must go listen to that song immediately! Thanks for Sharing Your Summery World with everyone! 🙂 I love the song “Old Dogs and Children..” but it always makes me cry too. I heard it on the radio the other day and had to pull over and wipe my eyes. All the music selections this week are excellent, but I’ve come to expect that! Thanks for sharing those too! 😀
