This has been a magical summer for me. I didn't work or take any professional development classes; my time was completely free of obligation. The weather has been great, if a little lacking in rain, and I've spent a lot of time outside, most of it at the beach.
I haven't hung out with my daughters enough, but it's good when we do manage to meet up. This is a photo of Melissa crafting at a coffee shop with me one day last week; she embroidered, I knit, and we both drank good coffee. Such a sweet time. The relationship I have with my grown girls is so precious to me.
I have also tried to do a little extra organizing and cleaning at least once a week; the latest achievement was lining my refrigerator with cheery placemats in order to keep it clean and bright. I did the same with my food cabinets, and I quite like the new and improved look of them.
How are you spending your summer? I hope it's as nice as mine.
