The Burning Question

This weekend marked the official beginning of summer although it has felt like summer for awhile.

The long summer days are lush & green, sunny & hot.

But the fact is, I still find myself in Boston, when I am normally in France by this time in the summer season.

I have usually left before my day lilies bloom, but this year I am still here to enjoy their summery glory.

And of course staying in Boston means lots of opportunities to share in my grandchildren's many summer activities, which I love.

But the burning question is I going to France this summer & if so when. In my last post's comments Menthe Blanche very politely asked just that question. Many of my French friends are emailing to ask too, as are family & friends here in the US.

I wish I had an answer. Although I long for the peace & tranquility of my village & little house in France, this year life is just much more complicated. With so many unanswered questions still left in Boston, I am unable to make my usual summer plans, for the moment anyway. But I do hope that will change soon.

Wishing each of you a very happy summer..... no matter if you have well laid plans or not.

Gone Fishing

Today was the first day of summer vacation for my grandson, Jack. What better way to start off the season right but to go fishing with his Granddad. I came along too, for the fun of it.

No fish were caught, but being a beautiful day & all, there was a lot of exploring & climbing as well.

I am afraid that, that old adage ...." Gone fishing ".... is how I have been with this blog lately. Hopefully I will be back soon with something interesting to share.

In the mean time enjoy the small things & have a great weekend!
