The first few almost-summer weeks are the most magical. After that it's mostly sweat and humidity. (okay, I'm partially kidding. Although the heat does make me cranky.)
But soccer's started and my camera is starting to feel comfortable in my hand and it's just so pretty outside that I don't quite have the heart to complain about it.
In the true spirit of this summer-like weather, I've started in on some of my summer goals! (you can take a peek at my updated list here.) Every time I look at that reading list it gets scarier. I mean, les Mis. is scary enough on its own...but when coupled with Shakespeare and Austen and even a big honking biography...I dunno. We'll see how it goes. I'm excited to read L.M. Montgomery's Story Girl. I've seen quite a few Road to Avonlea episodes, so it'll be neat to read the original.
I've also begun NLS classes, which are fun. We have a good time pretending to be lifeguards - our practice time is during a free swim, so we're strapping our "spinal victims" to the spinal board amid toddlers with splash toys...blowing whistles and "clearing the pool" while dodging noodles and trying not to trip over the real lifeguards on duty. Good times. The real guards - my future coworkers? - probably hate us for getting in their way. Whoopsie.
Does it feel like summer where you are?
