But not the weather. The weather has been ass, but we are really enjoying the big chunks of leisure time during the summer slowdown. Lots of time to blow bubbles and walk barefoot in the grass. Hard to believe, but it’s midsummer already. It already feels like we’ve done a lot, but the second half will be even better. Mark’s been able to park himself on the couch with a glass of wine a few nights a week and will begin tackling one of his favorite tasks – planning our trip. We are so excited to go to Seattle for 2 weeks next month. As usual, we are packing it in as we have a lot of friends and family to see, but some of the highlights are a 40th birthday celebration and an overnight sleepover at the family cabin at the lake (another lakehouse!), a day trip to Canon Beach, and of course meeting Lecia and Sally.
In the meantime, I’ve scheduled dates with friends I haven’t seen in awhile and here is a list of places and things we’d still like to do before school starts up again the second week of September (if only the weather would cooperate!):
Um, ok. Maybe this list will take us into early Fall (Humidity! Heat! Rain! Curses!).
