Laughing at my dog when we go for walks in the 100 degree weather (more like 80 when we walk). He gets really hot towards the end of the walk, and he'll throw himself down in the grass to cool off. He's over dramatic for a dog ; )

My fav. way to "waste time" is peruse vegan cookbooks and dream up dinner parties!

Thanks!

Jessica said...

Don't know if it counts as wasting time but I love sight seeing along with all the other tourists. It's great to look at your city through the eyes of someone discovering it for the first time. It helps you learn alot about your city and lets you learn a litttle about yourself too!

Christina said...

Not really "wasting" time, but I love running through the sprinkler all afternoon with my son!

-Christina :o)

Walking around the neighborhood with my daughter while she points out all the dogs, birds, airplanes, cars, bikes, etc. Walking is way more fun with a running commentary by a 2-year-old! :-)

Stephie C said...

This question could have been especially designed for me! I love just taking my time over things - not rushing around, just pottering about - time seems to just slip away!

Emily said...

I love swimming!

danilouwho said...

I think it's because I just bought a new home but this summer it seems to be thrifting and vintage shopping... and then rearranging my whole house to make my new purchases fit!

That and visiting farmer's markets. I have crazy love for farmer's markets.

This summer, my vice has been sleeping-in.

janaetime said...

Ahh I've been doing a lot of wandering around my (soon-to-be) new neighborhood to get myself acclimated with the pretty shops and good coffee!

Hanna ♥ said...

Perfect way to waste time? Baking heaps of cookies then biking everywhere delivering them to unsuspecting friends. Not exactly a waste, but not exactly constructive either. :]

Claire said...

LOVE those red beads in the last picture!
My favorite time-wasting activity is walking in the park with my hubby!

Opy said...

I love lazing in front of the TV with my fiance; it's really relaxing and not something we have much time for! So it's nice hahah XD

Casey said...

my favorite way to waste summer is reading indoors, I don't like too much heat, so I stay out of it mostly.

stephanieesstar said...

I love watching The Office or Gilmore Girls! I'm not one for tons of heat, so during the really hot hours of the day before I feel like being outside, that's what I do!

kristen mcashan said...

fav waste of time would have to be sleeping in. (that's not really a waste to me at the moment, depends on how long i sleept) :)

I guess my favorite "waste" of time is playing on Facebook!

Sarah Rhodes said...

timewaster ... drinking iced popeye tea in a coffee shop and doodling. I live in Nashville, being outdoors is certainly more romantic but I would DIE outside right now!!

Mandy B. said...

My favorite way to waste time in the summer (or during any season) is reading a good book. I can easily pass an entire afternoon reading without getting up - what better way to waste time than to transport myself into another storyline and lifetime!

LMShunk said...

wasting time somewhere near water - on a boat is preferable. :-)

Nicole Heather said...

Daydreaming in the shade (and those daydreams probably have to do with fall weather)

me said...

I would love to say laying out in the sun but up here on the OR coast, that is very very rare. So I'd have to say playing in my craft room making things from my collection of random supplies.

laynemarie said...

Oh my, what a great blog and gorgeous shop! How have I not stumbled upon reworked until now?!

It gets insanely humid & hot in Florida during the summer. So my favorite way to waste time is doing anything INDOORS! Movies, reading, internetting, playing Wii...

Pakou said...

Sitting in the sun, under some shade, listening to music, being barefoot, oh sweetness summer.

My favorite way to waste time is to nap in the sun with my dog. She lays with all four legs in the air to get as much sun as possible. It never fails to make me grin.

Dianne said...

listening to podcasts while walking in the streets. It's important to take my time and look up to see new things that I normally don't notice zooming from one place to another on busy days.
