Can you believe we are in to the hot and humid days of Summer. We spend so much of our lives waiting for the right time and conditions to enjoy ourselves we actually miss all the little things.
How much of the cold winter do you wish it was Summer and now Summer is here what are doing? Many of us are rushing around like hamsters on a wheel trying, trying being the operative word, to accomplish STUFF! Stuff like shopping and shoe shopping and cleaning our house and rushing to one appointment while our significant other rushes our kids to camp and off to do their own errands, pick up the dry cleaning and get the car washed and on and on.
Now I’m not saying we shouldn’t be doing any of these things but now the beautiful sunny days of Summer are here why not just enjoy. So you miss the early morning workout for an extra half hour of sleep and a morning coffee on the deck. The couch you don’t really need to shop for can wait. Instead skip the mall shopping and have some friends over for a drink and reconnect. Maybe skip the kids camp and go with them to the park or beach with sandwiches. Remember how the sand would start blowing as soon as you unwrapped the peanut butter and jam sandwich and you could feel the grit on your molars. You ate the sandwich anyway and still remember how good the day was especially as you were with your mom or dad or friends.
These oatmeal scones make up super quick and can even be made ahead of time and frozen pre-bake. This way one of these sunny Summer days when you are ready to kick back and just enjoy the day you can pop them in the oven and savour them with your morning tea or coffee. I bet they taste good with some beach sand.
