Summer officially begins on 21 June this year, and will surely bring us more sun and some discounted ice cream too (maybe).

With how vaccination is going, it might be possible that we will be able to go on vacation somewhere or just generally spend more time outside during hot days, maybe on the beach or in the swimming pool.
