Summertime Downtime

M left for USSSA Softball Nationals with her dad on Monday and J has been out of town for work the last few days which has given me a lot of downtime. On the one hand it’s nice, but on the other I’m feeling a need for more connection to actual humans instead of just the dogs. Tomorrow I’m attending the Lancaster Festival ArtWalk with our friends Kevin & Allison.

In the meantime I’ve had lots of time to work, read, write and reflect. This has been the view from my “home office” this summer.

I’ve had the opportunity to get back to my walking routine – 3 to 7 miles a day. This was the beauty I witnessed this morning.

I am also getting to live M’s life vicariously through pics this week!
