Summer Is Here And Here’s How You Are Enjoying It Considering Everything Else Going On

There is no denying that COVID-19 is definitely changing a lot of our summer plans. However, there are a lot of plans this summer that we can still enjoy to the fullest, no matter what is happening in the world. Here are some of the ways you are making summer fun at home.

Nothing like a visit from the paletero.

There is nothing more summer than the paletero, according to @kclovesgg. He is the first person many of us fell in love with because he represented pure joy and always made us happy. Hearing that little bell clanking in the distance is enough to still make our hearts race.

On the other end, mami’s unending caldo is a summer staple.

Our moms have this theory that it is beneficial for us to eat soup when it is hot outside. It isn’t to boot our immune systems or make us healthier. It is low key a way for them to save on the A/C. While Instagram users like @lulu_hern might remember it fondly, it is important to know that mom thought you would not feel as hot after eating such a hot meal. Therefore, she wouldn’t have to turn on the A/C.

There is something so important about the first carne asada of summer.

We all know that papi, tío, abuelo, and every Latino man loves to be the carne asada house every summer. Fortunately, this summer, because of *waves frantically* everything, he can be the carne asada house every day. You better buckle up, @carmabelle91. Get ready to eat your family’s cooking all summer.

Some of you think margaritas are a summer drink when they are really acceptable at any time of year.

Literally, there is never a wrong time of year for a refreshing margarita because: tequila. While the freshness of lime juice and the blended ice to make for an exceptionally refreshing beverage for summer, don’t limit yourself. Enjoy your margaritas all year and make a special mix for those hot summer months, @cagirl_72.

The ability to go outdoor got a mention from you all because it’s the little things some times.

Being able to walk around outside is just one of the many joys we can enjoy without spending money. Being able to walk around your neighborhood or through nature is vital right now. We have been isolated at home for months and we have had to roll back openings because of spiking cases. Don’t let yourself go stir crazy. Walk around and breathe. @reynadelamiche knows what’s up.

Who doesn’t love a little baseball right now?

The sporting world was one of the first to respond to COVID-19. All professional sports suspended their seasons when COVID-19 started to spread in the U.S. However, baseball is on its way back in the U.S. Despite the pandemic, the MLB will be restarting the season and taking actions to keep players safe, @riossr.alonso.

A big thing you want, according to IG comments, is justice for Breonna Taylor.

Several of you commented that you want to see justice for Breonna Taylor who was killed by police in Louisville, Kentucky. Her case has drawn a lot of attention because the police officers executed a no-knock warrant and entered the wrong address.

Taylor was shot and killed in her home and the police who killed the innocent woman have not been arrested. People have demonstrated across the country demanding justice for Breonna Taylor. Though the police have not been arrested, Breonna’s Law was passed by Louisville eliminating no-knock warrants.
