In Between Heat Waves & Exhaustion

We've managed to enjoy the tail end of our summer season (Mostly indoors, seeing that the weather lately has been downright disgusting where we are) Not many enjoyable activities can take place in 105+ temperatures.

In addition to the heat, I've been incredibly exhausted from a mess of ongoing house projects, new school duties,  & the trying task of keeping three wild little boys mildly entertained indoors, waiting on this dreadful weather to cool.

On the bright side, being holed up in the house makes for great movie marathon excuses, so while Mike has been dutifully devoted to backyard progressions, planting trees and grating the dirt slops before the Fall rains come, I've been dedicated to the upstairs couch, watching all of the great movies I've been too busy for on Netflix these past few months: Most notably "Last Night" with Kiera Knightly, "Elegy" - a Phillip Roth Novel and "Be Here to Love me" the Townes Van Zandt documentary (which was, in all honesty, just a bit too depressing for even me)

For the record: I'm counting these lazy weekends as a personal triumph. Learning to relax a little instead of working continuously at a fruitless attempt at keeping a tidy house. At this point, the endless cycle of picking up toys, wiping down counters, cleaning windows and even vacuuming is pretty much laughable. The end result always lasts about 45 minutes. At best.  

Hope all your extra long weekends were good to you. Can't wait to get caught up on the posts!
