My mother has said on many occasions, that for parents, the busiest months of the year are September and June; new beginnings and endings.
Hear, hear, I agree, amen, and a robust, "SERIOUSLY!"
Let's play catch up, shall we?
Peter finished his freshman year at college and returned home on Mother's Day. He had some well deserved horizontal time for a couple of days. He started working on the Thursday after he came home and has been at it Monday through Friday ever since. He is helping out a friend who is a DJ at big events. "Mom, here's the truth about drunk women. They are hilarious. NOT very pretty...but hilarious." (As if men are all that attractive in the same state...) He is playing baseball and softball. He goes to the gym every day. He has a new (for him) truck that you can hear coming from quite a distance away. He loves it. He tends to be the voice of reason more often than not in this house. It's terrific to have him home.
Bella's 18th birthday was last Wednesday night. She and I went out to dinner as the men in the house had other obligations they needed to attend to.
Thursday was the prom. This is my favorite close up of the 150+ pictures taken that night.
All of Bella's exams are done. This allows her to sleep in and relax after an incredibly hectic senior schedule.
Kacey, Demitra and I are hosting a Solstice Walk along the Hudson River on Saturday, June 20 to celebrate the light of the solstice.
We will, of course, have a blessing, no doubt a meditation, a few other beautiful rituals, and no doubt a lovely time.
If you would like to join us, we are meeting at the parking lot by the fields (and the bathroom), past Senasqua and the Croton Yacht Club, at 8:00PM. There is no charge for this event.
Turning my cheek for the sake of the show
Now that you know, this is my life,
I won't be told what's supposed to be right
