In spite of wanting June to JUST HURRY UP, I am at the point of the year when I think that summer is getting away from me. When I think about being a kid spending summers up in northern Ontario, plunging without a care (except for the occasional blood sucker...erk), into the cold lake. Taking a bath in the very early morning with our floating bars of Ivory soap. Playing along the coastline in hidey holes with our Troll dolls. Remember those? We'd take the canoe out and search for loons, or get as close as we dared to Ghost Island (named for the white birch trees that glowed eerily at night). Summer seemed like a long, magical time.
Participating in the Post-A-Day-Every-Day Challenge last month was both fun and frustrating. I did realize, however, that what I think of as mundane, might be interesting to someone else - who thinks of their everyday as mundane - which I find fascinating. Etcetera. I guess we all like to take peeks into other lives. The Internet has opened up the possibility of friendships where they would never have been before while, at the same time, making it frustrating because these friendships are, in no small part, virtual. We never get to sit down at the kitchen table and talk to our blog buddies (with some exceptions, of course). So these little vignettes of home life will have to suffice. I am already slacking off, however, as I have no photo for today's post. I'm sure most of your can conjure up "hot and sticky". Right, Carolyn??
Speaking of same, thank you Carolyn of Krazo Acres, for goading me into participating. It was fun. While I doubt very much that I will keep up the pace, I will be more diligent at posting on a regular basis. AND I am going to pull out my beautiful birthday camera of a couple years back and learn how to use it.
