Feels Like Summer
Can you believe it's June? Where does the time go?
During this month, my babysitting will end for the summer months. Space will be made in the day in and day out schedules. I'll still be at the gym three times a week but those two days of not babysitting will feel a bit decadent for kicking back and feel like I'm on a summer school vacation.
Summer weather has arrived as well. Heat and humidity seeped in while I wasn't looking and my hair is frizzing out whenever I'm outside. As I was driving home yesterday, the plants and bushes on the roadside were billowing in greenness. Seems like yesterday I was wishing for foliage.
So far, we do not have any official summer vacation planned. I consider the Cape Cod trip a tiny vacation and we do have to retrieve our son when his internship ends. It's been years since we've been to our state parks. When the children were little, we'd go and have a hike, explore the stream and have a picnic. I'd like to do that again, this time taking the big camera and inhaling the forest scents and listening to silence.
I've been writing out some day trips my husband and I could do throughout the summer. (and I can sleep in my OWN bed at the end of the day)
This weekend is a do nothing weekend that will offset the travel weekend that just occurred. I'll be sitting and knitting and reading. Sometimes all at the same time and sometimes individually.
The backyard swing is up and ready for use - perfect for reading.
I started two new novels a few days ago. The Chilbury Ladies' Choir by Jennifer Ryan is interesting but I'm having trouble getting into the story. The book is written in diary/letter format with different first persons narrating. If I get an hour this afternoon and read uninterrupted I should be good.
The other book, The Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny is my kindle read....on the treadmill at the gym. I'm hoping the interesting plot will make me forget I'm exercising. I carry the kindle everywhere these days to squeeze in reading, I love the progress I make with 10 minutes here and there.
My knitting has hit that sweet spot. I have the patterns memorized and I zip along knitting with happiness.
Now for some technical business: Blogger is having issues with the commenting feature. I've heard from one dear reader who is unable to comment which makes me sad. If you clear your cache and cookies on your browser and restart you device that might take care of your issues (it might not).
Blogger is aware that the email comment notification isn't working and is working on a fix. If you check out the blogger help forum you can see all the bloggers who are singing the blues! Also the workaround for the missing comment email notifications for Blogger users: publish your post, comment on your post and click the notify me box. You should get emails.
Have a lovely June first kind of day!
