A few more weeks and we are ushering the Summer of 2012, in my part of the world, that is. I know for a fact that some of the places in other parts of the world are just experiencing snow and are probably taking refuge in their heated mattress pads during the cold nights. Snow is fun and all, but something I cannot really stand on a long-term and regular basis. It is enough that I experience it in one theme-park visit and that is it. I would still prefer the hot summer days over it any given time, when I can decorate my house in lovely cool shades of greens and yellows and spend my afternoons making lemonades with the kids. The fair weather will also be perfect for a swim in the pool or a familyâ€™s day out or a weekend vacation in a beach somewhere.
