It’s hot out. You’re thinking nothing could possibly quench your thirst and give you some sort of respite from the never-ending heat. Oh look! Your friendly neighbour has set up the perfect spot to gather and get to know one another. They’re serving pink lemonade (your favourite!), have umbrellas set-up to protect you from the sun’s rays, and there’s good music playing.
Jolly good! Does it get any better than this? Happy memories are being created, right here! As an introvert, I like to have something in my hands, like a drink or something to snack on, when I’m getting to know someone. It’s too hot out for coffee (my favourite beverage), but lemonade? Oh, yes please! My favourite colour combination is mint and salmon, which I used in the image below, in several variations. I can just picture huge trees with lots of green leaves on them, dogs and kids running around in the backyard. . .lots of laughter, and a cool breeze.
Sigh. I often dream of that kind of a weekend, as I sit here in my apartment in Vancouver. I so crave a lively home surrounded by people I love. I hope to have my family living close to me soon.
