Summer Vacation

Summers are synonymous with holidays because we get a one-month-long break from school during the hottest time of the year. As there is no rush to go to school, I find sufficient free time. I also work leisurely on the holiday homework and projects that our teachers tell us to complete during the vacation. I do not sleep till late as the mornings are the cool hours of the day in summertime and most productive time of the day. So I wake up early and go for a morning jog with my brother in the park nearby. Many other joggers come to the park too. It is refreshing and energizing to go for a jog. I also study in the mornings so that I can complete my holiday homework, and also do some extra practice in mathematics.

I love to read. So during my vacations, I read interesting fiction that I cannot otherwise engage in during school days. I find detective and thriller stories and science fiction very fascinating. I either issue the storybooks from the public library in the city where I live, of which I am a member or when I buy the books. I read the books leisurely at my pace.

Summer vacations are also the time when my mother pampers me and my brother at home. As it gets very hot, with the temperatures touching forty-one degrees Celsius, we prefer staying indoors during the daytime, and our mother makes us lovely goodies to eat. She loves to bake cakes. And so she tries using many different healthy and nutritious ingredients to make delicious cakes and other confectionery. We love gorging on all these sweetmeats. My mother also whips up ice cream at home. She also makes interesting beverages with apricots, plums, and cherries. Summer is also the time when many varieties of juicy and sweet mangoes are available, and my mother makes many different dishes using mangoes. She also hosts mango parties for all our friends.

My parents also take us to different interesting and beautiful places in the country during our summer vacations. I like to take photographs of the beautiful landscape and the local people in the different places we visit. I have an interesting collection of photographs that I have taken in the many visits we have made during my vacations. During the summer vacations, I complete my holiday homework that our teachers assign to us at school. When the vacation ends I feel refreshed and energized to get back to school for a new semester.
