Lake Oswego has had the best weather this year. No rain, no 100 degree days and a few clouds to keep us humble. Just right for raising little boys.
My healing continues to be right on track and I get the 30+ staples removed on Tuesday. The torture of physical therapy lies ahead but hopefully I will survive. My braces are working although I am not able to wear them for 22+ hours a day, so rather than changing to a new set every two weeks, I'm doing every three weeks. I meet with the dentist tomorrow and he can determine if that is still the right plan of action.
Every Wednesday in July, our City hosts outdoor music in the park just two blocks from our door! In August the venue moves to a park about 5 miles away so I will usually drop off the family (nowhere to park) have a glass of wine nearby, then bring them all home.
I have lived vicariously through my sister this July. She has been on a 25 day road trip! She and her mutt, Zoe. Each of her two kids joined her for a few days (they love to spend a month on Whidbey Island). Her son rode with her part of the way (Kentucky is home base) and they met up with friends here and there and went on some amazing hikes. HIKE! Even that word carries joy for me. I may get to do that again! Or at least a nice leisure walk through nature.
This month I took time to veg out and read books. Watched mindless Netflix TV series. And just enjoyed this simple life. Boys at the garden, going to camp, swimming and playing in mud.
A perfect July!
