I Wish Summer Lasted Longer

    Summer

    Up in the Northeast, summer seems quite short. One sure wished it was longer or at least lasted longer. Winter can get so chilly and raw. It would be much nicer if summer lasted longer. Even if summer started on time (lol). That would be nice too. As I get older I sure...

    I had a great summer this year.

    I wish I could replay it! I went on vacation to Dallas and a week long camp. Plus goofing off with my friends was fun, too.

    I Miss The Long Days Of Summer

    I miss the sunshine. I don't like waking up in the dark.  I am not a big fan of winters, but I do like the change of seasons.  I think 1 month of winter and 6 months of summer would work good in my book.

    Uk Summers Are So Short

    Summer in Norway can seem intense

    and short. Summer in England can exist only in the rain. I wish the sun shone longer and we can bask in it's delight.

    I Am Solar Powered

    I live for summer and the sun, I love all the outdoor events the freedom. When winter hits it like I am locked up in a cage, just waiting for spring. Maybe I should learn how to hibernate and skip winter altogether.

    Summer Is Too Short

    I really hate the loss of light and the changing of the clocks in the fall. Even though I enjoy the arrival of cool weather here in the desert I sure wish we could keep the 14 or so hours of daylight we enjoy in the summer.I don't mind the earth moving further away from the sun...

    The days last longer.

    The sun comes up earlier. You can do so much outdoor activities. People seem happier in the summer. :) More active.
