Helena started a photography meme challenging people to post a pair of photos each week which look up and look down. I took this pair last weekend - looking up trying to find a cloud in the shape of something for my summertime photography scavenger hunt (I think the cloud looks a little bit like a surfer or hula dancer or dancing mermaid or maybe a dragon, but I'm not confident enough to call it a winner) and looking down at Paul and Clara working in the backyard.
These pictures put me in mind of plans for the summer because fixing up the backyard is definitely on my list. I have noticed several people posting summertime lists: Ali Edwards runs a summertime manifesto. Flora has a bucket list. Stacey has summer plans. Do you do something similar?
I have a lot of ideas for things to do, but most of them are practical and, frankly, not all that fun. I'm working; Clara'a going to summer school. We are volunteering once a week at the humane society, and I am going to help Clara find a place where she can get life guard training and/or experience teaching swim lessons. We're going to fix up the backyard and clean out the garage.
Henry's life will be full of fun and games. He graduates on Thursday, goes to Costa Rica for a senior trip and is planning to hang out with his friends having fun.
I'm thinking Clara, Paul and I need to add some fun things to the summertime list. Suggestions welcome.
