Happy first day of SUMMER!

Today is officially the first day of summer. It begins at 8:26 am EDT this morning.

I'm taking today off from work because I feel the Summer Solstice is as good a reason as any. Anybody else out there have any solstice plans?

How awesome, that you're taking the day off, Squirl.

Happy Summer Solstice to you.

I'm guessing you'll be taking a few photos today. :)

Love and hugs to you, dear.

Yay for a day off work--and yes, the Summer Solstice IS a good reason!

Enjoy the beautiful day!

Will there be pics of people drumming the summer in? I watched a group of people do that on the first day of summer last year--out on the Port Dalhousie pier...beautiful scene--sunset over Lake Ontario...

Usually we celebrate the solstice with a barbecue party, but tonight our son has baseball practice and I've got a ladies' bike ride to lead, so it will have to wait. Happy Solstice Day, though!!

We were going to sacrifice a couple of virgins tonight, but we couldn't find any. ;)

Ladybug, thanks! I took a few photos and, yes, I will be sharing :)

Love and hugs to you, too.

Effie, nope, nobody drumming today. I did enjoy it and will be posting pictures soon.

Eclectic, enjoy your ride. It's a great way to celebrate the solstice.

oopseedaisee, I wish a comment were all it would take to make her better.

I planned to have my dinner au natural, as Mom Nature intended. Unfortunately, Denny's didn't much care for THAT little idea.

I think they should make it law to not go to work on any day that is lovely.

What do you think? Would I get elected if I ran for PM?

I plan on bitching and moaning all summer. Will that do?

Hope you enjoyed your day off!

Isn't it wonderful that summer is only just beginning? With as hot as it has been, it feels like we've already been in the midst of summer. Which makes it all the more of a treat that this is the beginning. :-)

No plans on my end. But I did eat some watermelon - that traditional summertime fruit.

Woo Hoo! Summer! I noticed just how late the sun was up last night. Longest day and all...

Milkmaid, I have to say that I enjoyed most of yesterday. Thanks!

Jim, Denny's does have a history of discrimination you know. So that doesn't surprise me at all.

JDR, I'd vote for you! I think it's a wonderful policy.

Mr B, that should work just fine. :)

Danielle, yes, most of yesterday was great. We had thunderstorms, but that's part of summer too. Hope you enjoyed your watermelon.

Kranki, glad to see you out and about! I bet stays light even later at your place than it does here. You're a bit further to the north.

Eclectic, me too. :)
