Distracted in June
1. the act of distracting.
2. the state of being distracted.
3. that which distracts, divides the attention, or prevents concentration: The distractions of my husband interfere with my farm duties.
4. that which amuses, entertains, or diverts; amusement; entertainment: Having Jim around is a major distraction.
Distraction is the June word-of-the-month for me so far. If you haven't noticed, when I'm distracted, I don't blog. In my inimitable style, I completely blame my man, Jim, for this. He took the entire first week of June off from work. While we didn't have any big plans, we spent a lot of time doing all the things we love to do together and none of the things I should have been doing. So, I've got a lot to share. Try to stay with me now, because I'm going to jump all over the place with my story.
Here we go.
We took a day trip to one of our favorite beaches:
Roxy loves it here as much as we do:
Somebody really needs a haircut:
While there, we went to our favorite cafe:
My coffee was WAY bigger than Jim's:
The drive back home was eventful:
Back home, I encountered the biggest, grossest slug of my life on the way to the garden:
Poor, misunderstood, disgusting, little fella:
We noticed our friend, wee little bat, is back in the barn:
My man played with his new toy:
Have you ever noticed that almost everything's bigger in the country?:
Then we went kayaking. I generally spend the entire time looking at the back of my husband's head on these excursions:
This is not the approved kayaking position:
The weekend, then, was all about Dragon Boating. My son, Aidan, is on his high school team. That's him with the paddle:
Their team won the high school championship for the second year in a row!:
They were very happy. Shyness doesn't really run in the family. My boy is the one in the center, holding the trophy:
It was an incredibly fun first week of June. Jim's back at work now. Maybe I can concentrate again.
