Summer Can’t Get Here Fast Enough – TLC Electrical

March 20th marked the first official day of Spring this year and I think Charles Dickens described it perfectly when he said “It was one of those March days, when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” 

 It does seem as if it has been usually cold this winter and I for one am ready for more sun and more red on the thermometer outside my back door.  The natives are restless at my house and it won’t be long before the daytime hours are longer and the outdoor activities begin.

 We have a big family and when all the kids come home from school they bring more with them.  We always have a houseful and something is going on almost every night.  The nightly routine is soon established. Tom and I get home from working at TLC Electrical in Southlake all day and the kids will connect one of their iPods to the outdoor stereo system, it takes a few tries before we can agree on what we want to listen to. Next its lights and ceiling fans (a must in Texas).

 Then, my favorite part, we grill.  I love cooking, serving, and eating outside with my husband and kids. After we’ve been scattered in several different places all day long it brings us all together at the end of each day.  We swim, tell stories, play cards, sing, and even dance.  But mostly we laugh, and create memories.

 The trees are blooming now and I know it’s coming soon.  I’m looking forward to another wonderful summer spent with family and friends on the back porch.
