Hello friends and Hello June! I’m playing a bit of catchup today (and likely for a few more days) because my June started like this
…two days at the lake house my mom has rented for the holiday week. I went up early Wednesday and came home yesterday afternoon. It was relatively quiet (I have a story from last weekend to share with my May looking back post next week – and that story was decidedly not quiet, except for the sunrise) and full of some of my favorite things. sunset. sunrise. toasting a New York Times crossword finish (with my sister). lazing by the pool with a book – and a VIEW!
This morning, already three days into the month, I finally sat down with a blank journal page. Hello June!
It’s hard to believe that those boys (the calendar photo is from last summer) will be calling a new place home by the end of the month (June 29 is the official move date). It’s also hard to believe my Friday mornings are back at church – my small group and centering prayer meeting are now hybrid. Today was our test run hosting from the church – Zoom logins from “new” devices, figuring out seating/camera/microphone placement, remembering how to talk “in person” – and it all went surprisingly smoothly.
I’m letting myself look forward to a few more things: getting involved with Moms Demand Action (saying I’m “looking forward” to this feels weird; but I’ll be doing it with Katie, I have the time, and goodness knows it’s necessary and urgent work); test-knitting Heidi Kirrmaier’s newest design (I got word this afternoon I’m officially in the test group!); Saturday morning visits to the farmer’s market downtown; summer reading and my BookshelfSixty (more to come!); and of course more porch time and family time.
What are you looking forward to this month?
