For the most delightful of reasons – my brother is visiting; we haven’t seen each other in 2 1/2 years – I don’t have much to say today.
I took some time to write this morning but am focused on a couple of upcoming deadlines. I have some work to attend to, documents to read through, a webinar to finish. Mainly, though, I want to soak up summer, and enjoy my brother, and get tears in my eyes every time my little one delights in his uncle.
So this morning we had a slow breakfast and a lazy walk; a trip to the beach and a lunch of leftovers. The rest of the day and the evening will unfold as it will; I want to hang out, eat good food, go outside, talk, laugh.
It is enough to simply say, on this simple Monday in August: I am so, so happy he is here.
