This past week has been summer at its best. It's been fairly quiet around here -- no big trips or big events for us this year. Just regular old, ordinary days. How sweet, savoring the ordinary stuff, the day-to-day stuff. There's comfort in it that's hard to find on even the best vacations.
I met my stepmom for lunch one day. She is one of my favorite people to spend time with. We always find lots to talk about, including our latest favorite reads -- this time The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman. (I really need to do a post about summer reading, because I've come across so many good books this summer.)
One morning, my dad, my brother, my favorite 8-year-old in the whole wide world, and I went on a hike. Then we went to Caribou for iced coffee and chocolate milk:)
I've reconnected with a long-time friend and we've been enjoying fabric shopping together. I love shopping for fabric and it's double the fun when I have someone to go with who loves it as much as I do. On Wednesday, we had a ball. I found some pretty fabric to make some tunics for fall, and Kristan found some quilting fabric.
Our book club met one evening and we discussed this wonderful book. Then we drank more wine and solved most of the world's problems.
On Saturday, Dan and I went to a Rockies game. Sunday was spent just doing stuff around here, then we went to hit golf balls, and then had a late, late dinner on the back porch.
Target is already carrying school supplies, but I'm not even looking. There's so much summertime left to savor.
