6 things I did not do this summer

6 Things I Did Not Do This Summer

Ah, summer. The word conjures up images of watermelon, slip-n-slides, swimming pools, gardens, and camping trips. Mostly. Unless you're someone like me who just really doesn't care much for summer. Give me winter, please! Anyway, with all these beautiful posts going around about what people have done with their summer, I'd thought I'd take a different tack.

We live in a tough world. I'm pretty sure that's not breaking news to anyone.
