Pleasant surprise: I was able to re-connect with a blog friend. Not-so-pleasant: I have had my patience tested. And tested. I am constantly reminding myself that being the grown-up means acting like the grown-up--not like a bigger kid.
Pleasant: Multiple knitting projects! Not-so: close deadlines (a.k.a. birthdays)
Pleasant: watching the light dance across the front of the house. Not so much: discovering some deferred maintenance that needs to be resolved.
Pleasant: knitting sweater fronts at the same time. Not so much: must pay careful attention; can't travel with this one (but this is what multiple projects are for--one to travel with!)
Pleasant: sunflowers. It's all good around here.
Pleasant: planting broccoli for fall harvest. Not so much: watering them daily
Pleasant: surprises on the memory card when uploading pictures!
We're going away for the weekend--a quick, semi-distant trip. When we get back, it will be August. And school starts August 30. Time for this mama to re-boot the summer and stop all the fighting!
