Onward and Upward

I was just sitting downstairs, knitting away on my Aquatic Raglan, looking over at my SUPERSECRET HP pal gift, which is about 95% finished, and thinking...oh my gosh, it's finally summer.

Time to think, and knit, and play with my kids...time to watch movies and stay up late and try new foods and explore my area and visit with my extended family and catch up on some housekeeping details (like cleaning closets and...oh...renewing my teaching certificate, which expires on...um...Monday) and take Mr D to soccer camp and go swimming and sing songs with Miss E and ride my bike and get back into exercise and surf the net and ... the list goes on.

Maybe even do some writing, like I'm always intending. And do some more writing. And take some good pictures. And learn to use InDesign and Photoshop better, not just because of teaching journalism, but because it's fun.

So. First on my list: walk to mailbox, put renewal form in, and raise up the flag. (Also on list: replace nasty rusty mailbox that got bashed by neighborhood hooligans last year.)

After that task, as Mr. Bennett says, I will be quite at my leisure. And after the year I've had, I'm pretty darn glad.

I am SO EXCITED!! Do you feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning when it comes to swaps or is it just me?
