some of us are being spoiled with marrow bones, others with roses

I think I can speak for the dogs:  things are feeling pretty good these days chez casa crazy fox.

Some of what is lifting my spirit:

this song

and watermelon.  With the heat wave we have been having lo, these past two weeks, I have eaten more watermelon than you might see loaded on the back of a truck headed to the beach.

and the beach.  and the farmer's market (tomorrow!) and bare feet and bare legs.  

I may even be loving on my wild summer hair (but don't quote me on that).

Houston, you're just gonna have to look elsewhere for problems.

It's also the season where I begin planning out the year ahead-- programs and whatnot for 2014 Squam and that is also super fun, creative spirit and happy town.  So there's that.

But mostly?  Summer is holding steady as my favorite time of the year.

And you?  Staying cool?  Feeling inspired?  Getting some holiday in the shuffle? 
I wish all that for you and still more . . .

bisous, e

  7. we are just back from a trip to the west coast, so we've missed most of this east coast heat wave (but, boy, it was like walking into a wall when we stepped out of the airport the other night). so happy for the bones and roses and watermelon in your world.
    and so eager to check out the book you've shared here (i am just finishing up the untethered soul which is really stirring me)...

    1. oh yay! so glad the Untethered Soul spoke to you-- it was a bit too serious and heavy in parts for me-- but there were some really good sections that made it very worthwhile reading for sure. I loved Getting Answers . .. if you do end of reading it-- let me know your thoughts. xoox, e

    2. oh, for sure there have been parts where i've had to read two and three times, and then just set them aside ;) but there have also been these sweet little nuggets that stay with me and have my wheels turning.
      will let you know about getting answers.
