It’s nearly two hundred days into 2012. My 366 project on flickr is going along swimmingly, despite me feeling incredibly boring to the average viewer. I AM doing it for me, but I can’t say that I don’t have a tad bit of insecurity about appearing like a consummate drabhead (but that might be my American tendency to think the world revolves around me, yes?).
Summer is busy, flying by and really good. I always have so many ideas of things to do over summer break, but really we just kind of float with each day. There’s not a lot of structure. Some days that is a challenge… but mostly, it’s nice for a change. We’ve made our early summer goodies (spruce tip jelly, rhubarb jam), caught some fish (a meager amount), been on our fair share of hikes, camping trips, birthday parties. Typically, by this time of the summer I am pretty worn out… but I find I’m keeping a pretty good balance this year. The kids aren’t in any camps or sports or anything now–which means that all the stuff we do, we do together. And it’s better, I think , for us all. Weird. The older they get, the more exciting it is for me to make and do and learn alongside them. Everyday is an open slate and that’s kind of refreshing.
What to do today?
