The Way Life Should Be

Sometimes you gotta wonder about the state of the world and how work seems to dominate our lives. We spent a great day yesterday just hanging out together, and it seems wrong that these sort of times are so rare by necessity of making an income. Family time, real quality family time, is so hard to come by these days. What's the answer? We're still searching, but get glimpses of the answers now and then.

Got lucky with the weather, it was sunny and warm, though rain was threatening later in the day. I spent the morning getting food and stocked up on berries and JM beef. Need to get a chest freezer, which I think we'll do today. Then N and I rode our bikes to the Rec center and R&A walked, and we played tennis. It was a lot of fun, and the kids have taken a liking to the game. They seem determined to get it together, and want to play every day, for better or worse.

Then we stopped at BG's to get hot dogs for the grill and have fudge-sicles. Takes me back to being a kid. Saw HD and wanted to meet her new tenant since we learned she's a music teacher who teaches drums. How fortuitous. Then back to home to BBQ, which we've been doing almost every night since we got our killer grill (see Green In the Green Mountain State). Makes summer a little more fun.

As we head into July, lots of things planned, so much going on, it's a little crazy, but you have to keep moving forward. The stuff I wrote for World Partners was apparently well received to the point that they want another piece. I'm fine with that and am happy to help, though I could live to regret that.

Until the next time, thanks for reading.
