It is the first day of summer vacation, and most of my ideal vacation day requirements are in place. I didn’t get to sleep in, because my daughter had a basketball camp to attend this morning, but that meant that I got a jump on the day, and a quiet house. The weather was perfect for the walk to camp – and back – and after checking a few things off my to-do list, I retired to the patio to write.
It’s amazing what an energy boost good weather and a good start to a day is. I threw caution and allergy symptoms to the wind (almost literally) and opened up the windows to air out the house because 70 degree temperatures in June are too good to pass up.
A quiet house. A beautiful day. A good start. Time to get some words on the page.
