Summer Days Friday 5

1. Favorite summer food(s) and beverage(s) chocolate (oh sorry that is year round). Iced Tea (regular or Long Island variety), Ice Cream. BBQ
2. Song that "says" summer to you. (Need not be about summer explicitly.) any of a number of campfire songs
3. A childhood summer memory Using lawn chairs, blankets, pillows to build tents in the back yard
4. An adult summer memory First summer working at camp--end of the first week, MAJOR thunderstorm moves in. Trees falling, 80 frigthened children in the lodge, heavy rain, power outage. IT was fun.
5. Describe a wonderful summer day you'd like to have in the near future. (weather, location, activities) Around room temperature, light cloud, beach, good book.
Optional: Does your place of worship do anything differently in the summer? (Fewer services, casual dress, etc.) we move the communion table down off the chancel dais, I probably won't wear an alb again until September (unless this baptism we have tentatively scheduled happens), this year we will sing to recorded accompaniment instead of live music.


  1. trying to weigh up how 80 frightened children can be fun!!!

    great play- I love ice-tea

  2. well it was a type of fun that I don't need to experience again.

  3. I've been in that kind of storm...spent the next two days rounding up canoes and boats from all over the lake. Took a bath in the lake because wehad no power for 3 days--the kids went home after the first day and a half!
    God I miss camp!

  4. Oh I'd say after having to calm 80 chlidren thru that you deserved a long island ice tea!

  5. Thunderstorms are both lovely and awe-full, aren't they?

  6. A few years ago my daughter was at language camp (French) in Minnesota when a tornado blew through. It was intense. But all was well. Me. My girl scout experiences at a camp in Wisconsin were mild. (And very fun). I really like the average thunderstorm, but not tornado weather.
