Boomers Dive Into June and Summer Activities

Summer officially begins Friday, June 21, but the unofficial start of the season is Memorial
Day weekend. Sometimes the weather does not cooperate, but when it does we enjoy timeless summer traditions—barbecues and picnics, family and friend get-togethers, outdoor activities at home and further afield. Lucky to experience sunny, warm weather this year, my town awakened from a long winter slumber (and less-than-perfect spring weather) and welcomed visitors. Crowds packed the beach, lines spilled around the corner from the ice cream shop, and cyclists and skateboarders ruled the roads. 

Our boomers have been busy and start the season with ideas readers will find interesting.

At times it is challenging to prioritize our life, and one of the most difficult tasks to learn is how to say NO. Just in time for June, Jennifer of Unfold and Begin created the latest self-care calendar to go along with her year of Extreme Self-Care.  This month it's mostly about NO!  But it's also about YES!  Read more in How to Create an Absolute NO List and prepare for creating time in your life for what's important.

Friendship and spring have been on Carol Cassara's mind and she shares some helpful ideas for healthy friendships at A Healing Spirit in "How to cultivate your friendship garden."

All about entertainment...
Summer activities...
Rebecca Olkowski with has been spending the last two month attending Emmy events for shows in consideration for the Emmy Awards 2019. It’s been one big party! She writes about some of her favorite television shows and events and more are still coming for at least a week or two.

And questions on our mind...
On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison writes about the top 100 most frequently asked questions. When she was in Madrid recently, her granddaughter called her mom and asked if the dishes in the dishwasher were clean or dirty. That got Robison to thinking about other questions that we ask all the time. Check out her list of 99 more questions to see if she forgot any.
Welcome June!
A number of significant events occur in June. June 6this D-Day, Father’s Day June 16, and the summer solstice June 21. June is also National Bathroom Reading Month

Everyone have a wonderful start to the summer season and take a few minutes to visit the boomers.


  1. The links to Rita and REbecca's posts are broken.

  2. White women are complete trash. Asian women are so much better than white women. And this is why white women are so jealous of Asian women.
