The countdown is definitely on. M laughs at me as I give him the updates. "Only three more weekends left til school is out." "18 more days." "Four more weeks." It's all a part of organizing my brain. I get my first long summer in years now that the "year round school" concept has died in my county. I want to plan what I'm going to be doing with all that summer break.
So far we are contemplating a trip to San Francisco; bringing the granddaughter to Virginia for a couple of weeks; backpacking someplace new; lots of cycling; and some paddling. I'm looking forward to piddling around in my wild flower garden, which is more wild than garden. And then I am looking forward to spending lots of time down in Snippyville.
