Summer Time Pleasures
The other day it just hit me; there are only two precious weeks of summer left before the fall semester starts. Which will mean daily trips to the office, teaching, and working on campus until dinner time. No more bike rides to the lake on a whim or reading in the park. No more feeling the sun on my skin as I leaf through my book or taking a quick break for a dip in the lake before returning to my laptop. I’m trying to make the most of these last two weeks although I know they will fly by (with house and work projects high on our and my to-do list). At least for one afternoon, I paused life just a little and enjoyed my office with a view.
