I’ve had a pretty shitty month of June, and so it ‘s with a happy heart that I jump into July. I have to say, that (knock on wood), this summer has been very enjoyable. Maybe it’s in part because Bruno has been pushing the idea that as a family, we need to “go with the flow” a little more. We have a tendency to obsess about all the work that constantly needs to get done, and consequently, we usually don’t have much time to enjoy the little moments.
On that note, I was pleased with how spontaneous I was this weekend. You’ll be happy to know that I planned virtually none of the events that went down:
- Huddling in the field, watch the fireworks in Knowlton, a childhood ritual for Canada Day
- Remembering just how much Tragically Hip I listened to, and flashing back to the Canada Day when Hilary, Joe , Dave and I drove to America- only to turn around at the border and come straight home.
- Completing the whole order of the upcoming triathlon, subsequently ingesting 2 bottles of wine, some pizza and some superfluous beers and Campari soda- all with some great conversations and loads of laughs
- Seeing my dad before his surgery
- Spending the day by the pool with old friends, catching up and watching the kids play, feeling really blessed to have such well mannered (at least in public) kids
- Setting up a new-to-me sectional couch in the living room, instantly wanting to throw out the rest of my furniture
- Feeling excited to sit and chat with Annabelle on our Tuesdays and looking forward to this week of camp. It’s funny how the lead up to big events are usually more stressful than the events themselves?
- Yearning for a personal chef
