Summer ConspiracyPosted: June 20, 2014 | |
Haven’t been here much. Summer (and a broken camera) have conspired against me. Well, mostly summer. I just can’t seem to talk myself into sitting at this computer. I figure that’s bound to get worse when the beans are ready to can. And I think I’m okay with that, I really am. As my husband would say, there’s so much going on in real life (irl).
Good stuff. And I find myself committing over and over–day by day–to be present in it. To slow down and take it in fully, not half halfheartedly from the corner of my eye while I type or check Facebook.
Cause summer is full…
- lazy afternoons playing lifeguard while my kids swim
- tending the garden and herb beds
- picking flowers for inside
- watching the family of ducks that have taken residence here
- home improvement projects indoors and out
- lots of meals outside
- long evening walks
- kids’ sleepovers and playdates
Of course there’s lots more. (Plus all the laundry and dirt that all that fun makes.)
So I guess this is my “excuse” post. But really, I don’t need an excuse. None of us do. Because it’s good to remember to keep the right balance. To not exchange “good” for what’s really best for our time. I don’t want this expensive box of plastic and circuits to be my master.
Cause I’m gonna enjoy my summer!
