National Ice Cream Day

Sunny Sunday morn

Purple cotton candy drips

Giggling like a child

I watch a balloon artist

Create happiness with air


This morning I spontaneously decided to be a kid again as I read a post saying our local ice cream shop was giving away ice cream sandwiches to celebrate “National Ice Cream Day”.

And not just any ice cream sandwiches! These were specially created from our local donut shop! A fresh donut ice cream sandwich! Wow! Just the pick me up I needed to start the day I thought!

So instead of lounging on my comfy couch this morning, I got up, and went out to greet the day and was pleasantly rewarded!

I love summer, ice cream, donuts and balloons! And it was nice to be a kid again! 😊

  1. Sounds like fun! Not exactly the most nutritious breakfast, but I love ice cream. And free is even better! Not so much the donuts, though. Like you, I love summer. I just wish we had a longer summer season here. It seams to go by so fast. Glad you enjoyed it.

    1. I agree it wasn’t nutritious but if sure was good and fun.
      Our summer has been a cool one so far, not many hot days so far and July is almost over. I am hoping it warms up more soon before the season is over.

      1. On Friday with the humidity they said it felt like 110′ . It was hot and humid for quite a few days in a row. Then last night it was supposed to go down to just above 50′. Quite the change. it was in the high 70s during the day. I think it is supposed to warm up again towards the end of the week. I haven’t been able to do much this summer to enjoy it as both sets of brakes on my car need replacing and I don’t want to go too far from home and run into trouble. I have an appointment on Thursday morning to get the front ones done. I’ll have to wait until I have more money to get the rear ones done. But I will feel safe if I have one set of good brakes and maybe now I can do the odd day trip with a friend. I can’t fathom how July is almost over already.
