Summer, Summer, Summertime…

Hello World!

As summertime officially kicked off last week, I have to pay homage to my absolute favorite season of the year!

Why do I love this season? Steamy weather, long days, flirty clothes, exotic vacays, fun parties and on and on…

I also find it sooo much easier to explore the A in the summer…In the winter time, I have a tendency to hibernate and watch TV and spend hours browsing on my computer (particularly FB)…Although I know I can bundle up and still hit the streets in the winter, something about being out in the cold weather for any amount of time is just unappealing…

But now that it is summer again, I plan to hang out on the weekends and sometimes even on week nights (such a departure from my ’20s when hanging out on a “school night” wadn’t nothin’…)

First of all, I plan to head to North Georgia for a zipline tour…I first explored  ziplining in Costa Rica (Check out my How page for a pic…)…I met, presumably, one of the owners of the North Georgia Canopy Tours last week and he handed me a brochure. He told me the tour was based on his own experience  in Costa Rica. Although it was scary to zip high above the trees in a Costa Rican rain forest, it was a thrill I must experience again!

Since I got my first massage in Puerto Rico, I try to schedule massages from time to time. As a part of my gift bag given to me for speaking at the Annual Christian Women’s Retreat, I received a gift card for Massage Envy! So I plan to schedule my appointment very soon…

I subscribe to  Livingsocial.com where you can get deals for all sorts of fun activities in the A, and if you go to the Web site right now, you can buy a tw0-hour sushi making class for $45! Sushi is soo yummy! Publix actually has excellent sushi!

I also think summertime is the perfect time to get fit…Since the days are so much longer in the summer, you have no excuse to not work out…you can work out before you go to work or after you come home and still be in before nightfall…so don’t trip!

Two of my fellow fitness instructors have created the M.A.F.I.A. Boot Camp! Makeba and Jameelah are wonderful instructors and will get your behind in shape fast! Jameelah is so bad that she can work you out and be eight months pregnant at the same time! I’m not playin’…And neither is she…

Although I’m still a baller on a budget, I do plan to replenish my wardrobe this summer…At long last, I will stop by So Very English! Boutique in College Park!  This boutique is owned by my new friend Nicole English…If her store is anything like her personality, it will be fabulous! Check Nicole out on this Web site! Nicole also has a YouTube channel. Her commentary is hilarious! She refers to herself as a “Sistah Revolutionary with a Gucci – because no matter the fight or the struggle, you still need to look good”… Okay…

Of course, I plan to explore outside of the A as well this summer, but if you can’t have fun in the city where you live, what’s the point of being there…

So what are your summer plans? By the way, I will also post about my summer book reading list in the next couple of weeks…Summer reading is a must…particularly when you are on the beach…

Of course, everyone has a to have a soundtrack for the summer…I’m very much uninspired by what is called music on popular radio stations nowadays so I have to think back to summers past…Obviously Will Smith’s “Summertime” gets you in the summer mood as demonstrated by the title of this post…

Since Will Smith’s son Jaden may have the blockbuster for the summer (that family is soo paid)with the remake of “The Karate Kid,” I have to mention “Cruel Summer” from the soundtrack of the original “The Karate Kid!” I love Bananarama!
