Summer Means......

Summer means hot weather and downing gallons of ice water with lots of mint
Summer means fresh basal and Heirloom tomatoes bursting on the vine

Summer means half filled insulin reservoirs and fresh salads, day and night
Summer means air conditioning as a need not a want, and short sleeve shirts and tees as the norm not the exception

Summer makes for lower basal rates and more activity

Summer days mean that the sun starts shining at at 5:30 a.m. and ends sometime after 8 p.m,

And people looking up towards the evening sky to see if: Red sky at night equal sailors delight, red sky at dawn = gypsy storms coming on.

Summer brings with it water ice on the beach and soft serve on a hot Saturday night

Summer always includes reading books on the beach & body surfing in the sea, free of my insulin pump for 20 fabulous minutes at a time - Body surfing sans my pump beats a free shower any day ;)

For those who live at the shore, summer means outdoor covered showers in the privacy of your backyard & under the stars~

Summer means friends, new beginnings, fresh starts, fire flies, and the feeling that anything and everything is possible.

What does summer mean to you?

Now that I don't get summer vacations, they don't really mean much other than my birthday! :)

Summer time heat is here. That means more outdoor activity that, hopefully, result in lower basal rates. Love how the summer is also a time we're able to get together with friends in ways that sometimes haven't been possible since we were kids. Thanks for sharing some needed summer-time perspective, K2!

Ahhhhhh! I'm so glad it's here! Summer means lazy days, pool time, less stress, the smell of chlorine and sun tan lotion, sun kissed little noses, and the things I love most in this world! I LOVE SUmmer!!!
