What day is it again?
I had a good weekend away from the computer. I did a bit of catching up, but I was doing more living than anything else. I think that is a good thing--I mean, I actually got a gym shoe on my bad foot and went for a bike ride yesterday. That whole broke-foot thing is a bummer for summer walks and bike rides. But I think I'm back in action again. Another hooray.
We had friends over for dinner, we went to the beach, AND we spied a cabillion baby fish in the pond. Oh--I also managed to take a photo of our new little frog. It is very tiny indeed--about the size of a man's thumb. And he's awfully fast--zipping away before I utter the second syllable of "oooooohhhhhhh" when I see him. By the time I call Joe or Em to come look at him--he's long gone, which is kind of a bummer.
Can you believe the 4th of July is over??! Wow. Summer is flying by us in super-fast lightning speed. I need some of those slow days of my youth. Remember sitting on the sidewalk or the curb being bored? Remember waiting for your friends to come out to play and then discussing how bored you were? Yeah, me too. I wanna be bored again.
I'm still checking off all of those things I want to do this summer--I think this may just be the summer I do it all. I certainly hope so. But in the meantime, I'm sure having fun trying.
