those lazy days of summer? I haven’t seen one! This summer has been filled with so much running around and juggling that lazy is the last word I’d use to describe it. But we’re getting through it. We’ve even managed to get out to a bunch of our favourite kiddie places, including the close-by Provincial park. Kids love it (there are animals that they can visit and terrorize) and trails where we can try and get some good walking done. Of course, we usually stop at Tim Horton’s to pick up a coffee, so we can actually have enough energy to walk 🙂
My dad’s treatment is going well, and he only has 3 weeks left of radiation. The days have been filled with trying to juggle the kids, the hospital, housework, and oh, yeah, writing! But we’re managing. And we’re planning on celebrating with my dad on his last day of radiation.
I must confess though, I’m SO looking forward to September…
As excited as I am about summer’s imminent arrival, I am *slightly* terrified over the lack of writing-time I’m going to have!
We have some fun stuff planned-trips to Canada’s Wonderland, a few weeks/weekends at the beach, a couple of birthdays, a Cuban festival, (no, we’re not from Cuba, but friends of ours and us are obssessed about a little Cuban restaurant in the neighborhood and we have now decided to do a yearly Cuba-fest. And well, I guess it’s not technically a ‘festival’ but, have enough to drink and heck, it certainly feels like a festival!) We plan on having some time to just relax and enjoy each other’s company and the lack of routine that summer brings…
I’ll be busy working on my next book for Indulgence, the third book in my series. And I’ll also be blogging a lot over at The Hot Pink Typewriter. We’ve got some great interviews and posts coming up this summer!
DS finishes his final year at his little preschool tomorrow, and next year will be attending grade one! He’s a busy little guy so I have enrolled him in a few 3 hour camps, 2-3 days a week. My plan is to drop him off on those afternoons, and run to the closest coffee shop with my laptop. At least I know that will be ‘my’ time. Now, I just need to figure out what to do with DD during that time…any volunteers? 🙂
