It's Summer. And I'm nesting. I have felt so good over the last week. I have been able to spend more time at home. I have moved furniture and "things" around making new areas in our home and on our porch. I have repotted plants greening up my surroundings on the porch. I worked and worked in the garden trying to save it and it felt great. I have been trying out new recipes and really enjoying my kitchen. I have said goodbye to some unwanted items and just cleaned up. I am finishing projects that I have started. I am getting things done.
Maybe it's because I lost most of the month of June dealing with my mother-in-law's illness and death. Maybe it's the antibiotic I am taking for my tooth and sinus aches. Maybe it is part of my own healing process and acceptance of a childless life style. Maybe it's because I am normally up to my ears in canning this time of year. Maybe it's the tropical rains and breezes we've been having. Maybe it's our new puppy and being blessed with a fantastic marriage.
Then again, maybe it's just Summer.
