I love the busyness of this summer. It’s the good kind of busy. We’ve already had lots of fun and I plan on having a LOT more.
Today’s fun includes cleaning and Alisha’s first day of Orchestra camp. She was so excited. I can’t wait to hear all she learned about playing the violin today. The cleaning is not too bad because I’m cleaning for a reason. Some friends of ours are on their way through the area tonight, and they are coming to stay with us! I rarely get to see them, and I’m so excited to get the chance to spend even a few hours with them. I’ve made a huge pot of chili, so whenever they get here dinner’s done. Unfortunately my oven is not working (at all) and I can’t make them the caramel corn I had planned on, or the corn bread to go with the chili. Trust me, rice krispie treats don’t even come close to comparing with the caramel corn, but those can be made on the stove.
I have so many things I want to post. Stories and pictures of our summer so far. The problem is finding the time to do it. I’m not real great about being “in” the moment, but apparently I’m getting better at it. I’ve spent way less time on the computer the past few weeks than I have in a long time. I’ve been doing a lot of swimming (and burning…hopefully turning to tan 😉 I just needed a break and figured I’d check in with my blogging friends.
Thanks for the welcome back! You, my faithful readers and commenters, are awesome.
