“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”
― Henry James
I haven’t done one of these in a while. Truth is, we’ve been in survival mode since Matt has started firefighting. First it was fire academy then EMT. He’s almost passed that first year of craziness. I was not prepared for the crazies at all, I thought it was all work 24, off 48 hour fun. I thought, this is going to be great for me and getting ahead mom blogging. I was so wrong.
Eating – It’s like 180 degrees outside. Cold pasta salad packed with veggies are our jam right now!
Drinking – Y’all I’m still off the coffee and cola. Crazy right? When I need a pick me up, Yerba Mate.
Listening – Vance Joy & Bob Dylan.
Reading – I need a good book suggestion you guys. I may have to audible it in car pickup line but I need something.
Matthew – Just finished school on Friday and did awesomely. He has state boards soon and is still studying but I may get more time to work on this neglected blog that I love.
Milo – So bad y’all. He listens and then does the opposite of what we ask. But he’s funny. He has such a sense of humor at an early age.
Oli – is finally getting over whatever nasty bug he had. He just couldn’t kick it. But he’s so smart, I asked him what he wanted to be for Halloween, his answer “the schwarzchild radius of a blackhole”. I had to hop on google.
Pip – is about to start 7th grade and hasn’t finished her summer reading. She has a week left.
Watching – dun dun, I’m in another Law & Order mood. Oh and old old black and white movies. I miss shark week already.
Loving – Justina Blakely ‘s lifestyle brand The Jungalow. Can Justina come just decorate my life?
Wishing – to travel a little bit now that Matt’s schedule will calm down. Travel blogger jobs, call me??
Using – Fresh Skincare. The Peony brightening line is so good y’all!
Thinking – about Daufuski Island, can we move to another island? It’s a ferry ride to Hilton Head, but seems like the different slow life that I’m craving.
Looking Forward To – Cooler fall nights.
