I woke this morning in Connecticut and for a second had to convince myself that I am really here. Our new house is a couple hours away but it is not quite ready for us so we have planted the children at their Grandmother’s house. They will splash and play and walk to the drawbridge and eat ice cream cones. They are tired of being in the cars. And so am I! All together this month we have collectively brought four cars and two moving trucks to the Northeast. It is strange not being in the Texas heat, the heat is so encompassing…like a blanket that never comes off. I forgot what it feels like not to be sweaty all day.
Today will consist of mostly laundry, then a sweet reward of eating outside at Auntie M’s with the ocean waves and sand covered children. It is a nice reprieve from my worries of closing on our house and unloading an enormous amount of household goods… to include a large amount of fabric crates. My husband who never says a word about how I love stuff was inspired to note that I sure have a lot of fabric. He said this while loading the truck when it was 111 degrees outside. He said it with a smile, it might have been sarcastic but it was a smile nonetheless.
So while my blog is sitting still and quiet I have been doing the opposite. I haven’t forgotten you, and can’t wait to sit and read what summer is bringing to each of you.
Here are some wishes I will wish for you:
sun, sand, water
red, white & blue pinwheels
grape (or cherry) slushies
soft little sunkissed feet
fireflies and marshmallows
