Week-end: links & life {vol. 34}

“Then followed that beautiful season… Summer…
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.”
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


It’s summer, and it’s hot. But blowing bubbles is a good way to spend an evening after the hottest part of the day is past.

I’m very pleased with how my book sale has gone this week, and Ken was kind enough to take my ridiculous stack of packages to the post office for me. Isn’t he the sweetest? To be fair, though, I was the one stuck at home surrounded by painters, grumpy kids, and cooped-up dogs. Oh, and all those flies that got in the house when the windows had to be open so they could be painted properly. The house is looking AWESOME, though, and they should be done with the job today. {Yay!}

I’ve been working on homeschool planning for the coming year, which always gets me excited regardless how the previous homeschool year ended; I believe boundless optimism and a touch of amnesia may be requirements for homeschool moms.
