I’m in Ottawa. It’s hot and it’s humid; it’s full of cousins, sisters, brothers, parents, and friends; it gets dark at night, much to Halia’s amazement, and the nights are full of stars and fireflies.
The past few weeks have been unbelievably packed, with my Arts in the Park show (which was totally awesome, even though it went slightly sideways, but more on that another time), finishing up at work, doing music for a wedding, preparing for recording some demos at the end of this month, going to vet appointments, visiting Jade’s neurologist (and getting some awesome news there, but more on that another time), visiting with my sister and her baby…. I’ve actually been avoiding my blog because life has been so busy, I’m overwhelmed with blogging material.
In fact, now that we’re here in Ottawa, I feel like I’m just starting to decompress from six months of overscheduled stressiness. Now that we’re on vacation, with the girls happily distracted by Gran and Buddy, two aunts, two uncles, and six cousins, maybe there’ll be a few moments to breathe. Maybe there’ll be a few moments to think. Maybe there’ll even be a few moments to blog.
Summer is at its height here in Ottawa. I hope that wherever you are, you are living life at its summer best.
