Yesterday we spent a glorious day on Schoodic Lake with the Carvers. And I forgot my camera. To which everyone responded all at once: "WHAAAAAAT?" This photo-obsessed blogger, who goes to the grocery store with my camera, forgot to bring it to our most favorite summer spot. I have a little bit of video, and I have my memories, and I probably relaxed a bit more because I wasn't following everyone around with a camera in their face. But I'll do better next time.
If I were to take inventory of our summer so far, I'd have to say: so far so good.
Here is what we've got.
very dirty faces.
roasting marshmallows on the patio.
staying in your bathing suit all day.
a respectable shell collection.
a panting dog.
dinner on the patio. broccoli from the farm.
the perfect golden triple stack.
endless hours by the water.
and quiet time.
I can't say that I've gotten all the reading, planning, and projects done that I had hoped, but on all other accounts, yes, so far so good.
p.s. I think I got some of you too excited about the writing piece I alluded to. No magazine publishing yet, but this is a baby step. I'll show you on Monday.
