A New "Kit"

If you are like me during the "Dog Days of August" I'll go on an imaginary vacation to the Alps or Alaska. I will settle in with a good mystery set in a really cold winter environment, fix a lovely cup of tea (which of course I would have to put ice in). Put a Christmas CD on with Winter Wonderland, Let it Snow,& Frosty The Snow Man. Anything that for a little bit would take my mind off the HEAT.

Now that Christmas is over I keep hearing you guys in the great white northern lands saying you are ready for spring. Well as we all know it's a ways off still kids ;( Sorry but I did put together a bit of a day at the beach kit for you :)
Sooooo pack your beach bags. be sure you throw in:
A couple of beach towels
Reading Material

Put in a Jimmy Buffet CD or better yet stick in one of those great CDs with waves and sea birds sounds:) And turn the volume up

Dig out the kids little wading pool from last summer. Get a bucket of sand from the sand box and spread it around the pool.

Now go dig out that bathing suit that's stuck in the back of you sock drawer and put it on.
Grab your beach bag and head to the beach ;)

Oh Look there are a couple of lounge chairs, pull them up right to the water (wading pool)

Slather on some good 'ol' sunscreen, spread your towel on the lounge chair, grab your book and get to lounging.

When you start to feel a bit thirsty doesn't a pitcher of Margaritas sound good or even a frosty glass of Limonada?? Interesting note. Lemons are a real luxury in Mexico and have to be imported. But Limes are everywhere, and Mexicans have a great love affair with limes. It's in everything, mayonnaise, salsa, ceviche, chips, a dish of fresh lime wedges is place on the table with every meal
Now that you have all the ingredients necessary for a day at the beach, lay back close your eyes listen to the music, sip your drink and IMAGINE

But like all good thing the sun will eventually set and you have to open your eyes to the reality of the weather. Ah but never fear a day at the beach is only a wading pool and a vivid imagination away! :)

Shaking the sand out of my sandals and wishing you an audacious day or evening my Bloglandian friends depending on where in the world you are ;)

You've described a wonderful day....although I don't like sitting out in the hot sun much. But other than that, I will have one of everything please Pattie!!!!

Reminds me of my days in Destin, Florida -- thank ye for the lovely trip to the beach! ♥

I know what you mean about the limes, they have all sorts down there, don't know if you've run across the kind that is really big that you can eat like an orange!

Hello froma chilly, grey and wet UK!
- I 'found' you via Pat (she kindly Flagged me today - how sweet!), hence I've been having a looky around, and hence stumbled upon you.
Love what you have to say - fabulous positive stuff, a girl after my own heart hun!
Your piece about describing your favourite kind of day made me smile...I think we could all do with a bit of that at the moment! - Oddly enough, on my blog yesterday I posted a similar piece although for me it is a tiny little Welsh cottage tucked away in the forest that I take myself too!
Will come and visit you again - thanks for having me!
