We’ve officially decided against the whole-kitchen-remodel idea, in favor of smaller, incremental changes. Notice I said smaller, not small. Four brand new appliances was not a small change, but smaller than a complete custom kitchen remodel. Relativity for the win.
I finally finished the scrapbook on our California trip from two years ago! Like usual, immediately after the trip I was gung-ho about scrapbooking it up. I seem to lose creativity juice when it comes to the end of a scrapbook. It sat in a pile (see it here) for way too long, until last weekend.
I remember back in about 3rd grade my grandma took me back-to-school shopping and I got my hands on some overalls from JCPenny. It was always a struggle to go to the bathroom, because one strap always wanted to fall into the toilet, but I loved them! When I played pool in our basement I’d use their long, loose pant legs to store my cue when it wasn’t my turn.
I love summer. I love burning my butt on my black leather car seats, I love feeling wet as soon as I step outside, and I love the long days of sunlight. I could live in Florida, year around. But I don’t. So I’m going to try to focus on the positives of summer ending and the realization that winter is just around the corner.
