Summer Solstice

I heard a news reader mention Stonehenge this morning, and the idea of this being the longest day has rooted itself in my mind. It has given me  a false sense of security, but I now realise the afternoon has crept up on me, complete with all the annual delights of The Wimbledon Tennis Championships. No prizes for guessing what I shall be doing as soon as I've clicked publish!





I shall therefore beg your forgiveness for being AWOL, but will leave you with the result of my Sunday's playtime, when I sat and dreamed of where I would like to be...

  1. You really need to come over to me, Jinksy, to get an idea of what you ought to be doing this fine midsummer day.
    And no shirking now!

    Wimbledon indeed!

  2. It is always a bit depressing when today is over & the days are going to get shorter! :-(

  3. I had forgotten that the solstice was today; somehow my brain thought it was the 20th today.

    Hooray (or hurrah) for Wimbledon. The strawberries are coming into season here at just the right time.

  4. Ahhhh....the beach. One of my favorite places to be, too, Jinksy. I love the coast and the mountains.
    Enjoy tennis....enjoy the day...and the week!
    Love to you from Jackie

  5. Yes, how quickly those hours roll by, even on the longest day. Must truly seize the day...somehow.

  6. A wonderful day to celebrate and I send you blessings in abundance. Enjoy the tennis. Also a good day to consult the crystal.

  8. Solstice already? It's not even sunny here! I do need to get out and find some warm place on the horizon to aim for.

    Have a great day.

    p.s. I wanted to thank you for following my memoir meanderings. I posted the last chapter today. It feels liberating to have finished. For now, at least. Thanks for the encouraging remarks.

  15. I hope you have a supply of strawberries and cream in to enjoy as you watch the tennis.

    Hope your solstice was wonderful and sunny.

  16. I hope you enjoyed your Sunday. Unfortunately, this day to me has always meant cresting the hill for the return journey back to winter. Blah...
