everyone gets excited about summer. can't wait to sleep in, do "nothing", 'less' homework, hang with friends. but summer doesn't always live up to its expectations; and sometimes "friends" turn out to be only 'acquaintances'. and sometimes what seemed like 'less work' only turns out to be 'different' work. and sometimes birds don't hatch their eggs in the Spring and when yard maintenance includes cleaning gutters, nests get removed. not all stories have happy endings.
but this weekend, by golly, we are going to have fun.
we'll be venturing to the Farmer's Market
and in general, doing our own little photo walk to insert some creativity and spontaneity back into our lives.
this would be where we 'pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off ...'
