Summer to My Ears

I have been very slowly working on turning my past year of blog posts into book form on Blurb. Creating photo books is completely addicting for me. I love it. It's been fun to reread my words and see what we were up to one year ago. Things have changed. I was in the garden like mad by this time last year and this spring finds me quite the slow poke. Seeing the flowers out my windows and here and there on our short walks has been great - but I haven't done more than that. My flower garden is still one giant weed pit with bits of color here and there wishing for attention. I also remember that this time last year I was on the phone a bunch to my mother wanting advice on how to keep tabs on Hugo in the yard. I was terrified that he'd disappear on me down the drive and out onto the busy road. He did, once. The faze was short lived, thank heavens. Now Hugo is my shadow. This season I am searching out advice on how to deal with all the questions and non stop chatter in my ear from the short one. I am a person who likes my quiet. My husband on the other hand, is the opposite. Cesar needs to be plugged into his laptop, radio, and or pod casts all - the - time. He is the King of Info. He and silence don't mix well with one another. I like being alone with myself, the sound of the wind, rain, the birds singing... One of my favorite sounds is when I'm sunbathing and all relaxed and I'll hear a small plane buzz past high in the sky above me. Love it! That and a little Eric Clapton in the background, is summer to my ears.
