Another summer day!
It is strange though. Strange how fast this summer is going, after all …
The previous weekend was almost like every other weekend has been this summer.
Friday night Happy Hour with our favorite neighbors.
Saturday hike/walking for Peter and I. This weekend we took a long, local morning walk and that one included breakfast at a nearby coffee house (an independent one).
Then we spent the evening on the deck.
I had my regular Aperol Spritz (what else is new?).
And, I made an awesome shrimp dish that we enjoyed on the deck together with our best friend.
My signature drink of the summer, the true and tried Aperol spritz.
Morning coffee up front. Every day of the week.
Sunday was as it always is.
Grocery shopping for the upcoming week.
The weekends go so fast.
I wish Peter could take more time off work. I REALLY DO!!
DO you Nordic people UNDERSTAND how GOOD you all have it?
Your long, long summer vacations. Treasure them! It is NOT a given in other parts of the world.
Peter has a lot to do at work during the summers in general.
Even though he has five weeks of vacation he cannot never ever take those weeks off. It is unheard of.
But, I wish he could.
At least a week here and there.
Walks with Peter.
Oh well, we’re going somewhere kind of soon.
IF all goes well, if we stay healthy and if the weather does not go nuts. You know, late summer and early fall is true and tried HURRICANE season here on the American east coast.
Summer evening on the deck.
My lower patio in the evening sun.
But, who am I to complain?
I like my every day life a lot.
I treasure the early summer mornings.
I have my routines.
I enjoy it.
I do not mind.
A new week it is!
Almost mid-August at that.
Found this number sticker on a walk over the weekend. SO true and so funny!
Have a good Tuesday!!
