Summer is officially here, hurray!!!. It is time to shake off the winter blues and break out the short shorts for days of frolicking in the sun. Just a few short weeks ago we were making use of electric heaters and gas heaters to warm up ourselves and the house and now the fans and air conditioners are constantly on in full blast to combat the hot temperature surrounding us at the moment.
Thank God the days of load shedding are now a thing of the distant past (I hope). And even if they were to come around again, the impact would not be felt as much as during winter since a great portion of our time would now be thankfully spent outdoors cycling, hiking, picnicking and swimming amongst the many other outdoorsy activities.
Interestingly, there is no ignoring summer time, the cool breeze and the warm sunshine. The season is a strong and commanding one that leaves many traces of its presence, with a burst of activities everywhere. Summer is meant for outdoor family fun and one of the best ways to have fun is to grab the family and go to the nearest park and play and eat ice cream. So, what else comes to your mind when you think of summer? For those who have already concluded plans for their summer vacations; do have fun lying on the beach and basking in the warm sunshine but be careful to watch out for sunburns. Lastly, please while going outside; do not ever forget to be armed with your sunscreen and remember to stay hydrated. This is going to be a long, hot summer!!!.
