Weekly Update

The roses in the yard looked stunning two weeks ago --- bright pinks, yellows and whites. I noticed many fewer petals this week, and I realized my summer archenemies, the Japanese beetles, have returned. Here we go again! I am sighing when I am not seething.

I have not settled into summer relaxing yet. Things are hopping at the office, and I have not gotten into my nighttime pool groove yet, which I will regret not doing more come September. Getting started on a new routine is the hardest thing for me. On Monday night, I did sit outside reading by the light of my outdoor patio lamp for hours, celebrating the summer solstice. I am reading --- and enjoying --- four books at once, and I still am listening to HAMILTON in my car. I think this peripatetic reading reflects my mood.
