I find myself, this summer, trying to make things beautiful. Here is the thing. I would like for our home and yard to be beautiful all the time. But I often lack time, energy and incentive. But now I have the wonderful motivation of our daughters upcoming wedding.
It's been a while since I've thrown a bash like those, and I'm a bit out of practice. But I am having fun, catching up with doing things that need doing. We had the deck painted. And new back steps and a gate built.
My niece, who is good at many things, can also slap a paint brush like nobodies business. She painted our living room, front room and down stairs bath. All jobs that have needed doing, and it feels so good to have them done. I am grateful.
Summer seems to be flying past. My business has been very busy, and I have not been swimming or out in my kayak even one time. I will fix that in the coming weeks, because I can already feel the season changing. There was a nip in the air this evening as we ate supper in the back yard.
Summer is marching on, and I am , too. Making things beautiful and getting ready for a party. Progress.
