On this, the first day of summer...

We washed our cars in the driveway. I used cooking spray to get the bugs off. It worked.

We had watermelon gazpacho for lunch, and a snack of chips and salsa. I really wanted some salsa last night, but it was too late to do anything about it. I made some this morning. After I finish this post, I'm certain I will indulge in some more.

For dinner we had buschetta topped with sautéed squash from our garden. If we wouldn't have spent yesterday at the spray ground and feeding ducks at Myriad, we probably would have done so today. We also had pink lemonade. 

I started reading Focus by Arthur Miller. I've seen the movie but haven't read the book. Jake and I have a little project in mind with Focus at the heart of it, so I'm brushing up. For the last 10 years, I've read Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury each summer. My friend, Nathaniel Wharton, had an extra copy and gave it to me my senior year. He said it was a book that should be read in summer. I've taken him up on it for a decade now. I feel like this would be a good evening to at least hold it in my hands, if not indulge in a page or two or three. 

I think books are one of the best gifts. I don't know if I realized until this very moment that I remember every book that's been given to me and who the giver was. I like that a personal connection to the book is what inspires the giver to give it, that and that they think enough of me to want to share that experience. 

When I was vacuuming right before the girls went to bed, I found one of Alice's baby teeth underneath a chair. It was so very interesting, and strange. After I put the girls to bed, I steam mopped the kitchen and living room - there's something lovely about the way it hisses and glides so smoothly over the wood floors. With those descriptors, you'd think I'd like snakes more. 

I'm off to do some yoga. I have a few poses I've been working on, crane is one of them. I have crow down, but my arms still hesitate being completely straight in crane. Tonight I feel like some arm stands.
