Summer Vacation.....

Today is the first day of Summer Vacation!! This day is golden in my book. This is the day I pen all my lists of what I’m going to do during the summer. Making a list is on my list.

Labor Day is when I throw them in the woodstove to ward off the chill in the air that arrives too soon here in Maine. MAYBE 2 things will be scratched off the list. Maybe.....

Oh well, I don’t know why I bother.

My pathetic goals for this summer: (and I actually don’t need to write them down)

Paint (actual paintings and latex around the house)



Take day trips and one big trip



That’s it. This is Vacationland officially, you know.

Update: It’s the end of the third day of summer vacation.

I worked in the garden.....only to discover something ate all my precious little baby carrot, basil, beet, spinach, stringbean, and zinnia seedlings. The garden is fenced in so it’s probably not a varmint. Probably bugs. God, I hate bugs.

Took a trip to North Conway, New Hampshire. Had lunch looking at Mount Washington.

I read.

I ate.

I slept.

So far so good,‘cept for the garden....and I did not paint anything.
