Days 2 and 3 of 66 Days of Summer

Day 2 of my summer break was the actual Summer Solstice. 16 hours and 23 minutes of daylight I calculated for my area, including the civil twilight times before sunrise and after sunset. I celebrated the solstice with homemade strawberry shortcake! Strawberries are at their peak around here right now, so I also made homemade biscuits and whipped cream to complement them.

Berries to be sliced and biscuits ready for the oven

Juicy and delicious

Flaky and fabulous!

Finished product!

Day 3 turned out to be a somewhat lazy Sunday. I did the stuff that needed doing, but I also spent some time here:
summer stuff
My anti-gravity lounge chair, iPod, bluetooth speaker, Kindle, bottle of water and the radio to listen to the Red Sox game!

Time to kick back!

Themes for these days? How about “Solstice and Shortcake” for yesterday and “Lazy Lounging” for today? πŸ˜‰


  1. Unfair! Now I am hungry! I like both themes! The shortcake looked delicious. I have strawberries in the fridge, now I have to make biscuits… tomorrow… πŸ™‚

  2. I’m salivating! When on your summer break, every day of productivity should be followed by a day of relaxation.

    • That sounds like a fabulous idea Carol. I’m getting ready to go be productive again – garden weeds are calling my name!

    • It is definitely from the boom box days, lol. The radio still works, however, so it is nice to have around.

      • That thing even has a cassette player! It was pretty cool at the time – cd’s, cassettes and radio, woo-hoo! πŸ˜‰
