I didn’t know what summer vacation would feel like this year – the end of the school year was really hard on me. I didn’t want to change schools, jobs, classrooms, or my teaching partner. I loved my job this year and loved the job I was doing and I didn’t want any of it to change… the last week of school SUCKED. I don’t remember much of June. I kind of thought that it may take me 2 weeks to get back to any semblance of normality. But then a couple of friends from Vancouver showed up, and a couple of burgers, a couple of drinks, and a couple of lake swims later and there I was. Normal and relaxed. I LOVE summer. Summer is awesome. I love farming and knitting and reading. I get to lie in my hammock and I don’t have to feel guilty about it. I get to walk my dog and go to the beach and have tea and cake and cookies with my neighbours. I get to bake hand-pies instead of harvesting for market, and then sell them at the market and not eat enough of them because they all sold. I get to wear summer dresses and stay up late and go out on week nights. Summer is awesome. Here’s some photographic evidence.
