Every summer I wonder how I survived the winter. What did I do every day without going for walks, riding my bike, taking Jane to the park?
It was late to arrive this year but is finally in full swing.
Most weekday mornings we play or swim and picnic in the park with friends, and I’m forever grateful for not sitting in a cubicle, for having all these awesome neighborhood mom friends, for being paid to take care of my part-time 2nd child baby V, and for eating lunch outside so I don’t have to clean up my kitchen.
One thing that’s taken up a good chunk of our time this summer is deciding it was a perfect time to sell our house, getting it ready to put on the market, looking for new houses, and realizing we are better off just staying where we are. I am recommitted to making our tiny house work for us.
Other notable events:
Taking my Mom on a surprise trip to Red Wing for her 60th b-day:
At Maiden Rock Cidery/Winery:
Going to the cabin for Memorial Day and 4th of July, but no matter how fun the cabin seems in theory, it so depressing without my Dad there. At least Jane has fun though:
And, for the last month, we have been obsessed with watching Game of Thrones. I guess we are late to catch on, but wow is this show amazing. We’re only starting the 2nd season so don’t spoil anything! It’s so nice to have something quality to watch or read at the end of a long day. The only great book I’ve read lately, and too tired for a complete review, is Letters from Berlin: A Story of War, Survival, and the Redeeming Power of Love and Friendship.
