Monday, and the countdown begins. . .

It’s Monday, June 25th and we’re in the homestretch as far as the school year goes.  This is crunch week for the kids writing exams and wild week for those who don’t.  There is so much planned for this week, it will be like a whirlwind every day, I’m sure.

I’m getting to this a little late this a.m., but I wanted to make sure I posted today’s pictures and get a few words on to this white space (well, on my blog page it’s green, actually).  Anyway. . .

. . . the weather is lovely today — looks like we’re finally getting some summer.  The weekend was fantastic, I got a little bit of a burn working out in the gardens.

My rock paths are becoming visible again, cleaning between the rocks is such a chore!  Trying to get all the clover and self-seeded poppies and dandelions and, and, and. . .I had very sore hands and fingers after a few hours of that.  But it felt good to be outside in the sunshine and the breezes.

I’ve started a new book by David Adams Richards.  It’s called The Friends of Meager Fortune.  Richards writes beautiful, haunting stories about the people of Eastern Canada.  And his books always have the most poetic titles, in truth, reading one of his books is like reading a very long poem.  He has such beautiful phrasing and his images sometimes stab right into your heart.   If you’ve never read one of his books I urge you to pick one up.  He is amazing, and he’s Canadian.

Well, I’m going to have to wrap this up — time, sigh, to get ready for work.

Six more days!

  1. My step-daughter grew up in Kelowna, BC, and her stories of life there fascinated me; like a different planet. Beautiful pics.

  2. Yes, we have our moments here, and summer is my favorite season, though it’s far too short. I guess, that when you have to squeeze so much enjoyment in to such a short period of time, the memories are all the more important.

  3. Good Morning Kathy….love that sunrise picture…I am a sucker for clouds!
    It is a stunning day here too…we are knocking off half an hour early this afternoon so I am hoping to get a nice long beach walk….winter in Cape Town can be wonderful.
    Have a lovely day.
