On the first day of summer break...
1} My true love left me for his third business trip in five weeks.
2} The five youngest were up at pretty much their usual times.
3} I realised don't have to go anywhere at all today for the first time in weeks upon weeks!
4} I spent a good chunk of the morning editing photos on various subjects and of various people for various clients.
5} I listened to the three Littles bicker incessantly :oS.
6} I squeaked in a quick photo session of my pioneer girl. (The Engineer and I were away with the grade 8's on their class trip when her class went to pioneer days at a nearby museum.)
7} I watched my two middles immediately get busy planning their day.
8} I wondered when my two teenagers would finally drag themselves out of bed.
9} I enjoyed a quiet lunch indoors with all the windows wide open -- as it's a cool, but sunny 18 degrees Celsius here today -- and made some plans for my crew this summer.
10} I worked in my sadly neglected perennial bed. So glad for the cooler temperature!
11} We began our summer reading. We're working on the second book in the Little House on the Prairie series. Thank you, Annesta! We are enjoying them very much!
12} Tortellini for supper. No veggies. No dessert. Yes, a strong indicator that the Engineer is away.
13} I listened to the girls playing in the depths of the backyard while I cleaned up after supper.
14} I am planning on spending a quiet evening reading and writing.
15} I feel the need for chocolate. However, I will NOT give in. I will tell you why in another post :o).
Did you enjoy a nice summer day today? I hope you did!
