1.  It's humid but really hasn't been that hot yet. 

2.  I read. 24/7. There was nothing interesting to do where we lived, so I spent 90% of my time with my nose in a book. 

3.  Fall. I love the cooler weather and the colors. 

4.  Summer in the City

5. Summer School

Relax, play, spend time with friends and family, visit my grandparent and vacations.

Fall, it is crisp and clean with a chill in the air.  I hate being hot.

1. Does it feel like summer where you are?
Yeah, but "feels like summer" is relative, lol.  It's been dryer with similar temps....comfortable.

2. What did you do on summer breaks when you were a kid?
Before I got a job, we'd roam the hood, play soft ball, swim in the canal.

3. What's your favorite season? Why?
I love the begining of each season....spring (new life) the lazy days of summer, fall (scents and colors), and the first snow of winter..... then I'm ready for the next season.

4. Name a song with "summer" in the title.
'Summer Wind' by Frank Sinatra

5. Name a movie with "summer" in the title.
Summer of '42

1. Oh yeah. In the 90s.   Today it felt like the hottest day so far at work.

2, For the most part played around the neighborhood.  Baseball was a favorite past time. 

3. Summer.   I do not like cold weather of winter or rain/storms of spring. 

Cannot think of either a song or movie.

1. Yes.  The lovely part of summer when evenings are cool (ish) and daytime temps stay in the very low 80s on the warmest days.  Sadly that's about to end on Sunday.  And the new AC until will not be installed until next Friday.  I may cave and buy a window AC unit to tide me over.

2.  Took over the neighbor boy's paper route.  Went to sleep away Girl Scout camp.  Usually went camping at least twice with my family--my favorite places to camp were White Pines State Park and Starved Rock State Park (both in IL and not terribly far from home, but lovely).  But we often went as far afield as Wisconsin, Michigan and Missouri :D

3. Spring and the early bit of summer when the temps are glorious like they've been the past few weeks.

4. Summer Lovin'

5. No. ;P

This is what my people do for solstice, go to the beach, light a bonfire with a witch on it, have someone make the "bonfire speech," sing songs and drink. In the old days, any child born 9 months after solstice was considered legitimate, even if mom was single.

Does it feel like summer where you are?

Not quite..it's finally a bit warm, the kid just finished school last night, it never really feels like summer until the 4th of July. I haven't been swimming or to the beach once.

2. What did you do on summer breaks when you were a kid? I grew up on an island so I spent days roaming around, and alot of time at the local country club pool.. I was very shy and resisted any attempts on my parents part to send me to any camps until I finally went to a theater camp in 4th grade.

3. What's your favorite season? Why? I used to always say there was nothing like autumn in new england and in many ways it's still my fave- but the older I get the more I love summer best.. my beaches await!

4. Name a song with "summer" in the title. Summer Lovin from Grease

5. Name a movie with "summer" in the title. 500 days of Summer (mmmm Zoey Deschanel)
