In the summer I seem to lose my will to work.
Just keeping up with the normal chores at home takes firm resolve.
When the weather is fine I get restless.
I find myself gathering up grandkids for a swim in the river,
or wandering the fresh produce market
wondering why the hubs doesn't think a supper of cold, juicy watermelon is an adequate meal.
I've caught myself dreamily searching the internet for vacation cottages on the coast of Maine
and daydreaming about driving a convertible down the coastal highway all the way from Oregon to San Diego.
Summer is not my most productive time of year.
So, a simple summer centerpiece that takes no work at all is just my cup of tea.
The hubs brought me home some freesia yesterday. (Happy wifey!)
I placed the freesia in a hobnail milk glass vase that I found at the Goodwill some time back.
(Most of my hobnail milk glass has been purchased at the good old GW.)
Next I placed some sea shells in a milk glass candy dish.
Last, but not least, I added my favorite Citrus Vanilla candle from World Market.
(I always watch for sales and for the email coupons I get from World Market.)
My centerpiece sits atop a favorite bread board with a homespun style kitchen towel underneath.
So, does anyone else out there get summertime lazy-itis?
