I was outside recently and the sky was clear and very blue.
I thought to myself, what is a summer day.
Part of it was the temperature. It was in the 80s and I was in the
Is it the beach with the wave and the sea breeze? Does that make a
summer day for you?
Or would it be the river or lake? It always seemed too hot at the river
or the lake and rarely any shade!
Would a hike into the mountains or just off road where you're closer to
nature be a summer day for you?
How about just walking with someone you care about?
My Idea of a Summer Day
It is a day where life is fairly calm and comfortable. The right
temperature, a little breeze with a clear sky and being with someone
I'm fond of. That would be a pretty good day!

Worrying about over there has never cured any problems. So I rarely
worry about things I can't fix or even see.
I rarely have a bad day.
If its too hot, I sweat and continue working if I'm working. I make the
If its too cold, I dress for the temperature and keep working or doing
what needs to be done. I make the call.

At the End of The Day
Whatever I was working on that day, digging a hole or writing an
article or just acknowledging people on Twitter, it was a good day!
With my work on Twitter, I never have an idle day.
I'm happy that I can stay productive one way or another. Even taking
a nap can be productive. It can help my body work harder later!
When my day is over, I know I've done well and helped as many
people as I could.
How about you and your days? What about the future, how will that
