summer, summer, summer time …

Posted on 17 August 2009 by Liza Mae V.

Finally, a weekend of heat and sun.  It finally feels like summer.


This is usually our rest day in terms of exercise but he convinced me that we will have a light jog around the neighborhood parks and trails.  It was 9:30am and the temperature was already sizzling but I didn’t mind.  I enjoyed the company of him while taking in the sights and sounds of the city.  It didn’t really feel like the city because the trail ran by the Don river and we were surrounded with trees and bushes.  Also, I find people are friendlier on the trails – smiles, a wave, a simple “Hello”.  Simple gestures which you do not often see in the city where people look down or high and no one acknowledges your presence.  An hour later we arrived home.  I swear it was the longest run (est. 10K) of my 20-something life but it I enjoyed it.

After the run we had our breakfast and I crashed to bed.  I was refreshed to head to the beach to play some beach volleyball.  We arrived around 4pm but it was perfect since the sun was past its peak and the sand was not blistering hot.   Our favorite thing to do during the summer is to go to the beach because you can catch some rays, socialize, and be active.  We have met many people on the way which now I call friends.  I think I spend more time with them than my old-time friends due to the fact that we share volleyball in common.  After, we had dinner with a couple of vball friends  and it was good times.

Night ended late with some pillow talk.  I love the random conversations that we have, it brings us closer and he always seems to know how to make me laugh.


Another beach volleyball day with some good old BBQ.  The sand was blistering hot though which dampened my spirits to play.  When you are thinking about pain, it deters you from playing.  The day was relaxed and I am darker than ever.

Gotta love the summer!  I wish that I didn’t have to work today because I would definitely be back at the beach.  We spend too much time indoor when it was meant for us to be outdoors.  I’m not sure if this 9-5 life is structured for my ideal lifestyle.  I possibly need a job working outdoors in the summer time.  =)
