The girls are spending every free moment in the pool, splashing like colorful fish, laughing and squealing with delight in their exercise. I, on the other hand, am trying to get my house organized for the summer- and finding motivation difficult. There are so many other things to get distracted with- cool wild thunderstorms that leave the air sweet and fresh, the errant grass in the flower beds which are just asking to be pulled (after all, they're outside, not inside) a good book waiting for me to dive in. It must be summer already!

It's just about here- the warm, endless days of summer are almost upon us. Already crickets chirp in the evening and the robins are almost done raising their young. The spring bulbs have lost all their foliage and the daisies are beginning to open their happy faces to the sky. And, the incessant, off tuned jingles of the ice cream truck are almost a welcome sound as they promise long summer days and pleasant nights.
