The last few months of preparing for Surtex have been grueling at times. It is amazing to think how sitting at desk is so hard on your body. Today we took some time off for a nice ride through the parks in town. The roses are peaking everywhere. We passed garage sales, people walking dogs, and once in a while the smell of breakfast was in the air. That always makes me smile. Our bicycle built for two was a very good investment in time together many years ago.
I really do love summer. What I love the most is being outside and doing those things that cannot be done in the cold of winter. I may be take a long hike, ride my bicycle, sleep with the windows wide open, garden, having picnics, eat my morning breakfasts in the backyard, read a book in the shade of the tree, drive with the windows down…. the list goes on. We simply must pack it all in before the snow flies! Today I am sketching. No t.v. … no radio… just listening to the birds and the bees fly by. I think I better get another glass of ice cold water and lemons! I love you summer!!
