Today was our annual trip to our local water park. Hot and humid weather. Huge crowds. Perfect people watching. Long lines. Fun times.
That's it in a nutshell. We all came home and crashed. Now we're just getting up to eat a little supper and get a few things organized.
With soccer camp every morning last week and then entertaining my daughters' friends in the afternoon, I didn't get much accomplished on the organizing or cleaning front. I am totally not complaining because I love having the summer to get to do fun stuff and be a little less programmed with my time, but there isn't as much going on this week, which means there are a few closets I should tackle.
Midway through the past week I forced myself to return to my exercise class. It's been roughly eight weeks since I broke my finger and ripped the nail out of the nail bed and Thursday was the first day I went back to class. It felt great- even the muscle soreness I've had all weekend long.
Yesterday I got sucked in to House Hunters: Tiny Homes which just fascinates me. I also find it somewhat inspiring to look at how little these people have and how much I would like to get rid of.
We stopped to visit my mom yesterday afternoon and were rewarded with some fresh peas from the garden. I haven't picked peas in years, but my mom has a gentleman renting some land from her to use as a garden and he has generously shared some of his produce with us. A few years ago I made a rather pathetic attempt at having a garden without any luck, but spending time picking and shelling peas yesterday brought back memories of my childhood. And it's got me thinking that maybe I really should make a better attempt at gardening next year.
My reading has slowed down from the frenzied pace of June. I'm still reading a lot, but have been busy with a few school type things and running kids around. So that's my plan tonight: find time to read and enjoy the beautiful summer evening.
