Here, summer is still in full swing weather wise which makes it a little bit easier to be back at work. We have had a great summer and will be savoring August as an even better end. I have always documented our life year round and in the summer time I have special things I like to include. So, I am sharing 5 things you can document about summer without a vacation.
Whether summer means hot days and beach visits or winter winds the weather is always fun to document. You can make it easy, just take a screen shot of a weather app on your phone and use in your project. You can also take a photo of your newspaper to catch the temperatures.
Your summer uniform
What do you wear during summer? Is there something special that you wait all year to wear? For me it is my Birkenstocks!
And by activities I mean all sorts of things, it can be sports for your kids or family gatherings. But I also mean the everyday stuff. For me I like to garden, sit on our patio at night watching the sun set, grilling and eating outside.
Perhaps your city or town offer special farmer’s markets during summer? Take your camera and take photos of all the delicious berries and veggies! Maybe you have your own garden that gives you opportunity to harvest for dinner? This is all worth documenting. If you don’t attend markets, perhaps you and your family eat something in summertime that you don’t eat year round, take a photo and tell the story or even the recipe.
Your summer routine
Our summers tend to be filled with light and long days, so we try to be outside as much as possible. Other things that are a routine in the summer is that the island we live on is invaded with tourists and that our resturants are open. One of my favorite is my walks around my garden every night watering my flower beds and veggie garden, picking bunches of flowers.
What are some of your summer routines? Perhaps you take your morning coffee on the patio or you try to take a walk around the neighborhood every day.
