A Perfect Summer Day

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek
 

The day starts out with a crossword puzzle at the kitchen counter. This morning I had a helper.

Then we head out to a local lake for some fun in the sun. Nothing better than digging in the sand,

or being pulled around in the warm water on a lobster while older brother lugs his deer into deeper water. Yes. My children have strange taste in floaties.

Time to quickly gulp down lunch so we can get back into the water as soon as possible.
A few more hours in the water and it is way past naptime. Anyone getting tired? A spacey stare tells me it is time to go.
After naps and more playtime outside, one by one, the sweaty boys climb on top of mommy for some snuggle time.
And hopefully the day ends like this.

Oh Kat, now THAT is a perfect summer day. That first shot though, at the counter, makes my heart swoon. What a doll with that face.

Soak it up as much as you can, Lord knows we both will be captive by winter before we know it.

*Boo. Hiss.*

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
