A moment I want to pause, savor and remember because it’s what summer is all about.

~ the sunshine and heat returned to our corner of the world, creating sunglass days & sherbet sunset nights
~ poolside afternoons & sun-kissed shoulders
~ a fabulous 4th, a parade with two daughters in it, and one on the curb with us, catching candy and waving her tiny flag. fireworks viewed from the front hatch. yes, mast lights and fireworks go so well together. it was a perfect holiday day
~ betty loving every minute of skate camp, and every ounce of her super-cool made-for-girls skateboard with an elephant on the bottom. it’s so, so rad to see her smile through a new sport with her buddies
~ it’s almost great-grandma’s 90th birthday and the girls can. not. wait.
~ writing deadlines extended, bloggy deadlines missed for evenings on our sailboat, mornings sleeping in, with brunchy muffin picnics by the dock
~ so, thrifty thursday will return July 12 and I do hope you link up
~ hearing about another friend battling cancer and wondering why it always visits the good ones
~ monsoon effects on a garden have brought about a leafy jungle, a bit of plant shock. there’s some serious gardening chores to catch up on
