Another week and I'm feeling fine. Seriously, I've discovered a love for summer because the humidity has been low and the temperatures pleasant. We've resumed our daily or twice daily walks with Frodo. In the late afternoon, I sit outside with a book for an hour immersing myself in a short story plot while listening to nature.
Our phlox has gone wild! Purple flowers are everywhere I turn and with them arrive butterflies and bumblebees. Sometimes I see a stray honeybee which is rare these days. Yesterday, I noticed a red leaf and a yellow leaf laying on the ground, signs of fall. I get a little giddy about that.
My oak tree is getting closer to dropping its acorns. I walk to get the newspaper looking for signs and hoping each day is THE day. We've had a week of returning to a schedule and sinking into a rhythm of togetherness. There have been times I've quickly research a quick getaway vacation only to close the window delaying such crazy thoughts. Sometimes the daydreaming is the most fun when thinking about traveling. Giving into relaxation at home is the best vacation for us for now.
How was your week ?
