What have we been doing with our time? Hmmmm…. soaking in each other, and the rain, sipping lemonade and reading. That's about it really.
Where Have We Been?
Sorry for the way this little blog has languished this week, friends. We've been a bit lazy… taking some very much needed R&R time.
Yep, you read that right… blessed, blessed rain.
Do you know those time-lapse videos of the desert blooming after a rain? That's just how we felt when the thundered rolled and at long last big fat drops fell down…. quenched, and alive. You could almost hear the world around us taking a long deep drink.
Yesterday, at 11 AM, the temperature was 75. SEVENTY FIVE!!!!
We heard angels sing, I swear it.
It's set to be back over 100 today, and everyday for the foreseeable future, but just that small break has made us feel like we might just make it.
We saw UP! yesterday. Its crazy how much it costs to take your kids to a show these days. It was a monumental treat for us. I'm glad we went though. The movie was really sweet. All about how stuff is just stuff and love, real love, the kind between two people who have been married along time, is the best kind of adventure there is. See it. You won't be sorry.
Other than that, we've spent a lot of time lounging about reading books. My oldest is into the Henry Huggins books these days. The middle kid has become a big Roald Dahl fan (he's reading "The Witches" at the moment). I'm reading "The Prince and the Pauper" to them aloud, and getting lost in "O Pioneers" after they've gone to bed at night. It's kind of an odd mix right? Works for us though… call it escapism if you will, but it's getting us through these long hot days.
What are you up to these days? Reading anything good? Got a recipe for a cool drink you want to share? We're all ears!
There's a bit of Book of Days news over at the Ranch today.
