Friday July 22, 2005 Accumulations
I just got back from vacation. It's amazing how much stuff accumulates while you are gone. I stopped the newspaper, but the post office saved a sack of junk mail for me. I had pages of email to sort through. I've got a suitcase full of dirty clothes and a whole list of catch-up duties around the house. I really enjoy vacations and I really enjoy coming back home, but I don't like the aftermath. It will take several days of catch up to get back to normal. Meanwhile, it's been hot (real hot) around here. Luckily the grass didn't grow much so I can wait a few days before cutting it. I did find some sour milk in the refrigerator and old slimy brown lettuce (not fun). The world seemed to continue to do its nasties while I was away, so I didn't miss any of that. Now I can look forward to the rest of a very hot summer with salads and fresh fruit and hopefully an occasional thunderstorm. Hot steamy days, cool lakes, huge shady trees, picnics, starry nights - all the fun things to remember about summer. Time to sit back and relax and prop your feet up.
