the dog days of summer

The summer of 2010 has seemed as if it is never ending.  The heat has been sucking the life right out of me and all I can think about is fall and cooler weather ~ leaves falling from the trees crinkling under my feet as I get back to running, cozy sweaters and blue jeans and soup.  The temps are still over 100 with the heat index even at 9 p.m. at night so I've put running aside for now and am staying sane with my yoga practice.  I'm not a morning person and have no desire to get up at 6 a.m. to get in my 3 miles though the low to mid 80s temps at that time of day does entice me somewhat. Eric and I managed a few runs before he petered out running with me when I did get up in the morning (before I start work) and he was home from work after his shift.  I've really been missing my runs though.  It's so freeing to get out there and just pop those ear buds in and go.  I tend to think about so many things as I try to solve the world problems (ahem, I mean my problems) and make plans.  I think about my art, my fears, my hopes and dreams and even my wishes for the things I desire.  I give myself pep talks.  I attempt to concoct menus for the week and secretly wish I was best friends with The Pioneer Woman.  Hell, I don't secretly wish that, I totally wish it.  Yeah, that's me shouting it from the rooftops - were you able to hear me?

The past few weeks have seen so many things, from senior photos (hello, is it really possible?) to precious time spent with wonderful friends, to cooking with my sweet hubby (man, did I ever get lucky there), to time creating (sorry, no photos - I forgot), to work and obviously the mommy/wifey duties, etc. 

School starts in a few short weeks and I expect the days of those weeks will fly by as they always do.  Two in high school and all I feel is blessed that they have a year together.  I still think I am the luckiest mommy in the entire world.

Honestly, feeling blessed for so many things right now.  My heart is overflowing with gratitude. 

I will leave you with one thing I have been smitten with for some time.  This refrigerator in all its pink glory WILL be a fixture in my home at some point and I am happy to report they are now being sold at Sears.  Can we say "enable"?

And I am still under the assumption I was born in the wrong era.  You think?
