Summer has come...

It's June 5th & I'm sitting out on our deck enjoying the coolness of the night as the sun sets. We had snow three weeks ago, a big forest fire right after.  Finally the early night is not frigid or filled with smoke.

Summer is my most favorite time of year!  Nothing makes me happier & more content than warm weather, daylight that goes on forever, cafe lights strung around the deck...what's not to love?

I've been contemplating drawing & painting.  But just contemplating...not actually creating.  I've skirted the issue by reading an entire book each weekend (really each Sunday) for the past two weeks.  I'm not sure why I sabotage my creative endeavors.  I truly do love to paint & make things.  So why is it I find it so difficult to start again?

First world problems right there.

Work is super busy, stressful.  Year end for an accounting person is hectic to say the least.  Throw in a new student worker, who is amazing but still needs much guidance, & a student who created  many mistakes when she left for the summer & it adds up to one tired me.  

Don, Kendall & I have been catching up on episodes of Supernatural.  I tell myself I'll make something while we watch but I end up snuggled on the couch with Kendall finding it hard to stay awake. 

Maybe this is what I need right now.  The peaceful.  The quiet.  Maybe, just maybe I rush around too much. The list in my head is so so long.  Not accomplishing every last thing is frustrating, but I'm coming to believe that relaxing is not so bad.  

This little columbine rarely blooms.  I looked out tonight & was surprised to see all the blooms about to burst.  It seems patience is key.  Let's hope I'm finding some.
