I feel like the summer has just begun and at the same time is almost over. Isn't that how it always is? I don't know but I did catch myself fantasizing about sweaters and apple picking. Too soon? Maybe a little but at the rate of time flying in my head, it's gonna be winter before we know it. (not fantasizing about that yet) This is a note to myself and to everyone to try and slow down a little and get out there and enjoy more summer.
It was a packed week. All the painting and siding one could ever want to do. The mr spend his days on the roof shou sugi ban-ing the addition and it looks amazing. I painted the porch, then painted it again and painted the roof like 3 times too (not surprise there). Getting that perfect color is important you know. And on top of all that we did a good amount of babysitting, had a sleepover with a couple littles where we went strawberry picking and played in the rain, and we helped a sister move again. I know, I know, we are the best. Needless to say, we keep ourselves busy. And I just remembered that the fourth was this week too but honestly, we didn't do anything. The plan for fireworks turned into an early night. I think I was in bed by 9. Staying up past 10 is a hard sell for this old lady and fireworks really aren't my thing, so yeah.
I am not sure what today has in store. We could plug away, keep at the siding and I could start painting the windows oooor we could run away, find us some woods, perhaps a river to play in. The mr could bring his fishing pole and me a good book and just keep it all nice and low key. Hum, tough decision. (but not really. I am not working all day!!!)
