Tell me you're just like me--you can't keep up. You have trouble remembering the last time you sat and read a book in the sun. Did you pay that bill? You haven't even started on all the projects you intended to get done this summer. Please, please, we're so alike, right?
I don't know how normal people do it, but I'm still trying to figure it out. Busy, busy, too busy. Let's all take a breather.
So I spent just shy of four weeks at the cottage and went back to suburbia in mid-late July. Then a quick overnight back at the cottage, and now a little more time here before I have to leave my beloved cottage again for a few weeks.
Thus far this summer I've worried while my youngest and some of his buddies drove to Yellowstone (he made it safely back). Now the oldest has an opportunity to also see Yellowstone and she leaves upcoming week's end, so I'll have that to worry about as well. Of course I'm thrilled for them both and even a bit jealous--but they are at those ages where you have to do these things, explore and travel. And I'm settling in to my new job. So, yeah, that's where summer has gone.
But, it's high summer now and the best things about that are:
- Sweltering, oozing heat
- Queen Anne's Lace, absolutely everywhere
- Bees (not the stinging part)
- An excuse for wearing very little
- Sweat (what??? It's good to sweat)
- Overflowing farmers markets
- Sun tea
This is just a little of what I've seen and experienced thus far this summer. Still lots left to see and do.
