It's time for a....Summer-cation!

Sheila from Book Journey is hosting a Summer-Cation Blog Hop.

She says:
Happy Summer-Cation!  As I mentioned last weekend on the blog, I just need to do something SUNNY!  I decided to host a last minute “let’s talk about something shiny” (THE SUN!) event where others were and are invited to join me to post something about a summery event, a giveaway, summer plans, WHATEVER as long as no snow or cold is involved.
I repeat….
No Snow and NO Cold can be mentioned in your posts. :D

Oh man.  I cannot mention S--w   or  C--d, because those things are EXACTLY what we want to get away from.  I must hide my inner rebel who feels like shouting it out--just once.  It's like when someone tells me not to touch the hot plate,  I still have to feel it--just once.  But I will resist.  NO S--W will be mentioned here.......  this is all about the SUNSHINE.
One thing I love. LOVE. LOVE!    Is sunlight shining on water.  Lakes, ponds, rivers....with sunlight sparkling on the waves, ripples or smooth, glass like surfaces.    I LOVE IT.     Sunlight shining on water is one of my favorite things ever!
I love to hike in the mountains, on the beach, thru the woods and come upon sunlight on the water,  it's the most beautiful thing to me.  Throw in some spring wildflowers and MAN OH MAN.
Don't you just want to go NOW?    Let's go for a hike and check out this most beautiful WINTER (I did not mention  S--w or C--d) buster!    Come on, get your shoes on---we are going for a SUNNY hike.   Before I show you our (just pretend you are doing this sunny hike with me)  photos,  I want to tell you how you can win this coffee mug (coffee is good on early SUMMER mornings.  Good with a book while sitting on your patio after your early SUNNY hike):

It's the "Greatest First Lines Ever" mug. I love it and I want you to have one too!   All you have to do is make a comment on this blog post. ( I would love to be your friend on Goodreads too, but that is not a requirement),  just make a comment and I will randomly choose a winner to receive this wonderful 'literary'  mug.   My friend Sally thinks it would be a great challenge to read every book on this mug. What do you think?
Okay now... a collection where we are going to take our sunny hike to see "Sunlight on the Water"

It is cold and wet here today but this weekend is supposed to be warm and sunny and I cannot wait. I liked your friend Sally's idea until I saw "Call me Ishmael" on the mug.

I love those pictures! So gorgeous! And yes! That would be an incredible challenge and lots of fun too!

I swear the great sunny pictures make me relax. I can not wait and LOVE the mug! Thanks for contributing to a sunny weekend :)

Oh, oh, oh! Beautiful! Thank you for sharing these photos.

And how I would love to win that fabulous coffee mug!

I'm not sure if we are friends at Goodreads, but I can't seem to find you there. I'd love it if you'd send me a link. debnance at gmail dot com

I'm giving away a lovely $25 Amazon gift card. That should warm someone up! Here's my Shake Off Those Chilly Winter Blues.

Wonderfil pictures. Great mug, if I win it maybe I'll make reading those books my next personal challenge.
