I took it easy this weekend on the pictures. I’m fighting a nasty summer cold — sore throat, headache, body aches, and all the other great stuff that comes along with being sick, no matter the season. There’s something strange about being sick when the sun is shining for so many hours of the day; for a few hours you can forget your misery and overdo it instead of resting, confusing beautiful weather for good health. This was the story of the weekend: me trying to act energetic and healthy, then dropping like a fly at night.
But the boys and I managed to have a lot of fun, joining the Tower Grover farmer’s market on Saturday morning for the first time this season, where we ran into so many good friends it was like a surprise party! It was so good to socialize. Sometimes when Andrew travels I tend to keep to myself, which backfires. I am an extrovert and need adult conversation! My life depends on it and so does my attitude!
While out and about, we were invited to join friends for the baseball game Saturday afternoon, which we happily accepted. It was another great diversion and I was grateful for the plans. We left a bit early for early bath and bedtime, and I finally watched Wild, which I loved (though I cried on at least five separate occasions throughout — it really got to me!). Check out the trailer below if you haven’t already seen it:
Tomorrow the boys start two different summer camps, so I get a few hours to myself in the mornings, which I have really missed. It goes without saying that we are having an amazing summer, but I miss having time to read. By the end of the day, I’m too exhausted to read more than five pages in a row! Looking forward to a bit of relaxing outside at a coffee shop with this book, which my dear friend Maggie lent me. It’s really good so far (and I’m not very far in).
