SUMMER TURNS ME UPSIDE DOWN

How much more perfect can a summer evening be? Sun slowly sinking, tiny non-biting midges dancing in sparkling clouds. Children splashing and screeching in the pool. A hose in hand, spraying water over every pot and flower and sun-saturated growing thing. A rainbow-striped hot-air balloon slowly cruising right above our heads.

A day spent finalizing preparations for the annual AWC Independence Day bash which we're hosting tomorrow (because today was a regular work day, though I took it off regardless). Singing American patriotic songs in the car to the kids: Yankee Doodle, My Country Tis of Thee, God Bless America, Grand Ole Flag and realizing happily that I still know all the words...except to Yankee Doodle, but I covered that up by singing Zip a Dee Doo Dah instead and the kids never knew the difference.

I boiled eggs for deviling in the morning, made 3 batches of rice krispie treats, and grocery shopped. Anders trimmed the edges in the yard and cleaned the pool. Our house is fairly sparkling and the Lego pandemonium in the playroom has been held mostly at bay upon threats of death and dismemberment.
