Lazy Days of Summer

Sweden, specifically Stockholm has had a lousy summer so far and we are all holding out for August…and so far 3 out of 5 days has been beach-worthy so the odds are in our favor! Having the kids around and keeping everyone on an even keel doesn’t usually mean I can get a lot of painting or personal creativity accomplished….but the sketchbook does travel everywhere with me so sometimes I get the courage up and start sketching. Every summer there are some days/weeks that filter in and become the lazy days of summer..a bit boring, slow, reflective, cozy, sleepy, reinvigorating….I cherish these days. You really can’t plan them, put them in the date book so to speak, but they roll out as the summer eases on by.

My parents lost their dog recently.The kids lost a treasured pal that they cherished deeply. Ruby hung on with dignity while we visited overseas late June through mid July. The kids were grateful they got to say good bye to a wagging tail and licks on the cheeks. We have spent lots of our lazy days reflecting…..
