~Idle Summer Moments~


Basket napping.

Capturing light . . .

color on color

and bursting blooms.

Taking time for cups of Earl Grey . . .

and enjoying the view from my chair.

 Door wide open, . . . cool air wafts in, sunlight dances . . . and the neighborhood owl sounds out his familiar 
                                                                   whoo-whoo,
                                                                                        whoo-whoo.

Tired boys sleep late and leave me to peaceful mornings alone.

Lazy boys bask in their idle summer days.

Already the end of July and the fleeting feeling of it all has me overwhelmed. So many 'must do' projects to take care of. And so many 'pack 'em in' activities as well. Whatever happened to the lazy days of summer? 
So far, this summer has been so very different from the idle ones I'm used to. I've been working myself as much as I can . . . trying to finish things and tie up loose ends before the fall hits 
and my Youngest heads off to his first year of Middle School. 
And my Oldest begins his last year of Middle School. 
And this Mama starts to look for a job after 14 years at home.
A summer of transition.
But also, a summer worth making memories in . . . and slowing down for; to capture simple, unplanned idle moments. 
Seeking them because I know they're there.

Cheers!
