How this Writer "Plays Beach"
I live in a desert, people!
Looks like I'll take "etc."
And the above is what I do. I set up my big beach umbrella and my slatted lounge chair. Sometimes I make white wine spritzers and read in my chair all day. David refers to it as me "playing beach."
A girl does what she has to do.
It actually works pretty well. Summer for me is about enjoying the warmth, the flowers, the birds and lizards. I also like sitting under the grape arbor or on the front porch, reading or writing.
I guess that's what it comes down to for me. A fun summer weekend isn't about heading to the lake - though I do love to spend a day at WaterWorld once in a while - it's about getting to spend some time at home, doing the things I love to do.
Playing beach is just one of them.
