It's really hard to work during summer. School is out... kids are home... the weather is good... the food from the market is fantastic... Working just can't compete with all the distractions that form SUMMER. I have the attention span of a 3 year old - and that doesn't help either. The only time I tune the summer out is when I watercolor (creating my own summer on paper).
P.S.: I know I abuse the punctuation rules (dot dot dot), but I'm sure your inner literature critic could deal with it:)
