My summer was full of wonderful things. And heat. Hot, 100 degree, feels like walking on the sun, Sacramento heat. Suffice it to say, we didn’t spend all that much time doing outdoor activities much in July, August and even September.
I did start a compost bin and bought a couple of plants for a buck at the farmers market, which were quickly decimated by a very hungry caterpillar. Fresh produce was in abundance at our house and we even froze bags of bananas, strawberries, peaches and pomegranates to enjoy later. I made refrigerator pickles all season and hubby started eating more green beans, apples and nectarines on top of drinking a glass of green juice everyday. We went to the pool at the gym and worked out at the gym and them we joined a new gym without a pool. I miss the pool, but it’s better for our budget this way and we’re getting healthier physically and fiscally by the moment.
My daughter and I went to Santa Rosa to see her boyfriend’s play. The little girl sitting behind us sang every one of my favorite songs from Grease (cute and a little annoying) and the cast was good, I’m just used to the movie. We spent the summer looking everywhere for a car for our daughter, which she ended up finding around the corner from our house. Both of the kids were off doing their own thing most of the summer so hubby and I were on our own a lot. It was different and strange. And a sweet romance bloomed better than any movie couple I’ve ever seen.
