summer nights

end of july is creeping ever so near, yet it feels like summer has only just arrived. oh summer please slow down. we just saw far away family off today after a few days visit. so nice to share our new home with them. i spent the day stripping beds, cleaning, and rearranging our space back to just us 4. the rains fell hard early, then gave way to clearer skies this afternoon.  we had a simple dinner of blt sandwiches (SO good), then packed a basket of books, beach toys, cameras, and 2 travel mugs of coffee and headed to the beach.  evenings at the beach are an entirely different thing. the sand is wide open. dogs are there. usually a kite flier or 2. many couples walking hand in hand. it's quieter, feels more private and intimate. i love that time. i need to remember to do this so much more.we made it home just in time, as the rain arrived once more.

are you reading this summer? my husband found me the book in my hands above, that i have been seeking unsuccessfully at our local libraries, The Summer Book by Tove Jansson.  so excited to dive in. i'm also finishing up the Plainsong trilogy by Kent Haruf and then i have Delancey waiting in the wings. what are you reading?

happy july.

I have been so bad about reading this summer. We have had visitors and I can't seem to get into it. I can't wait to get back into it.
