Summer Is Here: 5 Reasons I Can Enjoy Summer

Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a great summer ❀

A few weeks back I did a post of Why I will never be a summer person and I listed 10 reasons why, but now I want to share the things I do like about summer and there are a few of those I like, lol. I am still truly not a summer person, this extreme heat we’re having all summer is slowly killing me. But I had to do another post and share with you the 5 things I do enjoy throughout the summer.

Beautiful and Bright Colors

All the countryside is brown and yellow but in the summer a lot of items in stores are painted with beautiful bright colors. From gorgeous bright pink and yellow notebooks to many bright clothes and throw pillows, great nail colors… It always makes me smile looking at them πŸ˜‰

Bright nails, Coffee n' Notes

Cold drinks (and Ice cream)

I love hot drinks, like a good hot cup of coffee/tea or even a yummy soup, but I enjoy a cold drink, especially in the summer. Cold ice coffee or a zero coke taste amazing in 38-49 degrees, more so when I am out of the house doing errands with my mom.

  • Sometimes when my mom and I are out and about we like to sit down and eat some yummy ice cream and drink some cold drink to help with the heat.

An excuse for staying indoors

God, I use it a lot, lol. In the summer I hate going out of the air con, so in every chance, I get “I can’t go out, it’s too hot” I will use this excuse a lot, hehe (evil smirk).

Staying indoors, Coffee n' Notes

Beautiful sunsets

Okay, even I can’t say no to a gorgeous sunset πŸ˜€ I don’t know why but in the summer there are so many gorgeous sunsets, even from my small bedroom window I can see the beautiful and colorful sky at sunset. Just looking at one of these sunsets makes everything feels good inside ❀

Sunset, Coffee n' Notes

Longer days

The days are longer in the summer and there’s light even at 7pm which is amazing in my opinion. I can do more and the day end so late, I feel more accomplished even if I’m not that productive that day, hehe. If I get up at 6am and the night arrives at 8pm, I feel that I can do so much more in a day (more time to write or play, hehe) πŸ˜€

Pool, Coffee n' Notes

Well, these are the 5 things I do enjoy throughout the summer even if I am not a summer person ❀

What do you love about summer?

Summer Is Here: Why I Will Never Be A Summer Person

Hey everyone, I hope your day is going well ❀

It’s the first week of July and we already have extream heat like 38Β°c (about 100Β°f) and we’re just at the start of summer. In August, we have a few weeks of 45Β°c -49Β°c (about 113Β°f-120Β°f) That’s TOO MUCH! Too much heat to be going outside and doing things.

It’s like walking on the sun – Well not actually, hehe but it feels that way. Most of my friends and family love the summer, the beach, the people, traveling outside, the sun itself, and they feel happier and more energetic during the summer. I will never understand how they can stand this heat but I guess for some it’s wonderful but for me, it’s not. For me, summer truly ends in October. Every year I wish, hope, and pray for the winter to come and for the rain to wash all this heat and dust away. Thank you for letting me vent out and now for the actual post πŸ˜‰

Here are my 10 reasons why I really don’t like summerΒ 

 

First, the heat, hehe

Going outside and be in over 40 degrees and no air con in stores – Is just a crime. I am sweating like a pig (do pigs sweat?) but only on my face – now that’s charming. I hate that. And sadly, most of our summer is a huge heat wave.

Dark skin

Due to my illness, I get a very dark skin, even darker than normal. Now I know some people may find this a nice effect but I really hate it. Especially when people around me associate my dark skin with me being sick or stressed. Now I know I am over stressed but this sun is making me even darker. Ahhhh.

No Makeup

I can’t put any makeup on me – ever, because it will just melt away (yay for that).

Car from hell

Getting into my cars feel like hell itself, and that’s even before trying to put on the seatbelt without being branded for life. For how long must I endure this never-ending torture (wow that was a bit too dramatic, sorry, lol) πŸ˜€

Give me shade

I feel like a vampire, hunting down every bit of shade I can find, so I can hide underneath it and trying to close off even the smallest light that can get inside our home.

No more soup or hot coffee

I love hot drinks and soups, I like cold drinks but I love more a hot cup of coffee or tea and I will miss it.

Never ending summer

Why summer comes back so fast and seems to last for a year?

Heat Wave, Coffee n' NotesΒ Heat Wave, Coffee n' Notes

Bugs are everywhere. I mean everywhere.

I live in the countryside and during this season we have bugs everywhere, from big to small they are everywhere and I really hate bugs.

Anxiety

I already suffer from huge anxiety the moment I step out the door, but during the summer you truly can’t go outside without being surrounded by huge amount of people that really enjoy this heat and can have fun outside, but for me that means even more humans outsideΒ  – Too many people everywhere I go, even just to my local supermarket. Every place I go becomes too crowded and I get panicky and start to cry in the car.

The wonderful sandstorms & dust

Every year, we seem to have in the summer huge sandstorms and dust in the air. Going outside is on your own risk, lol. But seriously we have 2-5 small sandstorms and dust hazes, that you really don’t want to go outside, it’s so unhealthy and the yellow-brown dust is covering everything. If I do go outside during this I always seem to get a rash all over my skin.

Every year I try to like summer and enjoy it like others do, but I can’t. I guess I’m just a winter person πŸ˜€

Summer

Summer… To most of you, summer is happiness and joy, bikinis and lots of yummy food. All sun and playfulness… For me, summer has a different meaning.

Summer is here and I think it’s time that we have a talk… πŸ˜€ I need to share something with you that most of you might not know.

I have Primary Addison’s Disease (but this you know), but what you don’t know is that when I get too stressed out and summer tends to do that to me, I start to have memory problems. Mostly short-term memory, but I can forget a period of time like a day, a few weeks or a month (this is a problem for me in any extreme weather, lol, but mostly summer).

Ex: I planned my wedding ( a long time ago) for more than 6 months and a month before I got married I started to forget. It took me a while to even know I was married, lol, and even now I have only bits of the memory combined with the wedding video, photos and what people told me.

Why am I so stressed?

Well… Wow, this is a hard one, lol. My mom is leaving her home and decided to go to a retirement home, so we are trying to find her the best place that she will love. It’s summer and the extreme heat is killing me, lol. Now we have an excellent air condition, but when I go out (and I do – a lot) the stress of the heat is overwhelming. Other than that there is the normal household stuff (money, cleaning, doggie, hubby) that can, and sometimes is, cause stress. There are many ways to relax and meditate, but I find that it is not always helpful.

So why am I telling you all these?

Coffee n’ Notes is a bit more than 8 months old and that is good with all my memory issues, lol. But, I met so many wonderful people here and share with the great conversations. You told me about yourself and I told you about me, so I am afraid that I might not remember you, lol, or your stories and what we shared together and you will think that I am angry or something πŸ˜€

If this happens and I don’t remember you, please do not take offense. I love you all to bits and you are extremely important to me, but it’s part of my life and I thought you should know.

I already had a little forgetfulness, but it went away very quickly, but I am afraid it was just the start. I already can feel moments and memories slipping away, lol.

I will take some steps to make it less problematic for you and for me, lol, by writing everything down (again), but let us hope that it won’t be necessary ❀ And if it does, I hope you will know that I will still be here as much as I can πŸ˜€

If you have any question about this feel free to ask and don’t forget to share your thoughts, I love reading your comments ❀

As always, thank you so much for reading ❀
