Favorite Summertime Treat
Having just walked back from The Ice Cream Shack, I have to admit that my favorite summertime treat is ice cream. Yeah, I know you can get it year round, but it never tastes the same sitting by the fire with the snow falling down as it does when walking home from the Shack, licking like crazy because it's melting so fast it threatens to run down your arm.

I'm fortunate to live within walking distance of three ice cream stands. Two are soft serve, one serves hard ice cream. I'd never turn any of them down, but my favorite is Peanut Butter Fudge. I just finished a "small" cone which is actually two huge scoops atop a cone. I never mix flavors on one cone, though. A lot of people do, but it just seems wrong to me!

I only indulge my ice cream craving in the summer - when I can walk to the stand. If I have a carton of ice cream in my freezer at home, I will eat it every day until it's gone. If I have to walk to get it, I don't have it every night - and I burn off a few calories to help make up the difference.

So, yes, I play mind games with myself. Don't you? If I write 1000 words, I can play Words with Friends. If I finished my word count for the day, I can curl up with the book I've been dying to read. If I walk four blocks, I can have an ice cream cone.

So what's your favorite summertime treat? And do you play mind games with yourself? I can't be the only one!

  1. I LOVE ice cream, but I don't live close enough to an ice cream stand or shop to walk. That sounds like a fun treat in summer.
