A Summer Weekend

August 2, 2011

It has been super hot here, day and night. So this weekend we decided to visit my aunt who conveniently lives by the beach. Tom and I packed up all the crap that is required to bring a toddler away for 24 hours, as well as my home-from-college-and-unemployed sister, and went down Friday night for a free concert on the beach. I found myself singing along to Journey, Neil Diamond, and even (gulp) Steely Dan at one point. Lucy was running around, screaming like a banshee while all the other kids were ready to pass out. Maybe if someone wasn’t spoiling her with juice and cookies…

On Saturday, we headed to the beach. Lucy chased seagulls, my husband and sister caught minnows, and I just sat and watched. I rarely sit and do nothing so it was quite nice. Now it is already Tuesday and this memory seems further than a few days away.

But, more importantly, how was your weekend? How’s the summer going? It’s already halfway over – can you believe it?! Heat waves aren’t going anywhere, but I hope you are getting away – even if it’s only to the movies or the beach for a few days. In the meantime, enjoy this lovely art by Christopher Stott to keep you cool, wherever you are.
