When I met my girlfriends for dinner last week Trisha leaned across the table and asked, “Is May trying to kill you?”. I laughed because that’s exactly what it felt like. May was trying to kill me. My house had become a place where we dumped our things, got more things, and ran out the door again. I’m not a person who can handle that for very long.
But what started out as a hectic month has eased into a deliciously slow pace. School is out for the year, most of our weekly commitments are ending, and my brain has finally stopped buzzing. The mornings are wonderful. We wake up slowly, eat zucchini bread with a generous helping of butter, turn on the music, and stay in our pajamas.
I’m really looking forward to summer! Trips to the library, swimming, maybe a little camping, Miss P’s 1st birthday, summer fruit, and fireworks… it sounds perfect. The flower garden is on the verge of taking off which means bouquets all over the house!
So how will you idle away your summer?
