Here's what is happening in my heel of the boot:
* There are times in my life when I do not realize how much noise whether it be productive or counter productive surrounds me. As the family is off in bed, I am enjoying the silence... oh and the occasional snore of my cat who has decided to join the post.
*Summer Break, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring Break are the only time I can truly become lost in literature. My poor Nook is on constant charge these days. I always set a goal and I am far behind where I want to be.
*As I began this process, our 13 year old cat decided he would snuggle NOW. Never mind that I am attempting to use the keyboard. No ma'am... Ozzy says the he wants it to be his turn. He does this all the time. "Oh you're grading those tests? Wait let me rest on them. " You don't need this iPad right now. SO I shall sit on it" All in all, I laugh every time and enjoy his company.
* Can I get an AMEN on wanting a slow July?
*I had some major & much needed surgery almost three weeks ago. I was given strict instructions about resting my body. However, I am made of a stubborn cloth and think I can manage. Then I pay for it later. Doers are not good at this resting business.
*Yesterday was such a joy. My little sister, her three sons, and our baby sister's two year old daughter came for a swim yesterday. Along with my sister, I sat (RESTING) in one of my lounge chairs watching our children playing and laughing as they did when they were younger. Now that my oldest will be going off to college in the fall, I am trying to take in the moments that are the last of all four of us under one roof each night. The day was beyond words as my sister and I took in the afternoon as we did years ago... it was as it should be!
