It seems as though the sudden sunny weather and heat have fried my brain enough to make me forget that I have a blog. Things are fine around her. Our lovely German Fraulein has returned to her Deutsch roots and we are down one teenager. That said, the remaining two are keeping me just as busy.
Riv and I are Island bound in a few weeks and we can't wait. There is nothing like an Island summer. For some reason I enjoy Summer more in the big city. More beach choices, more restaurants and coffee shops with balconies, air conditioned matinees to avoid the heat and of course, shopping. I don't know why but to my memories of Island Summer seem endless. Maybe it was the fact that it REALLY is endless in comparison. T-shirts come out in April and go back in October. Or the current of my life at the time. For years I had the entire summer and part of September off. Add to that a pretty much complete lack of responsibility and you have a summer full of books at the beach and all the fun you could possible jam back into a few months. It isn't nearly the same now but one thing that I hope to show River is a few weeks every year spent clam digging and running free in the salty brine of Parksville Beach.
Aside from that, the sun is shining and we need to head out and enjoy our Kootenay Summer and one of the perks of our small town.....an outdoor pool! I hope the link works....this song IS summer as far as I am concerned!

May all your summers be endless!
