The squirrel is gone and I'm sitting in the reclaimed screen porch watching a fawn trot across the edge of our back yard beneath a pink-streaked sunset. Life without wild animals INSIDE is good. It only took about two hours to sweep, scrub and sanitize the porch.
Funny to think I felt overwhelmed by the random piles and end of year busyness as recently as a day ago. Tonight it's so peaceful. I have a book to read, a short list of things to do tomorrow, and much of the clutter sorted and packed away. The strawberries are just about to start ripening and I cut a couple pounds of rhubarb to make a crisp tomorrow. I've got to prep for a summer tutoring gig with three students (starting Thursday) and read a couple of manuscripts--perfectly manageable work for now.
Spill it, reader--what manageable summer tasks do you have lined up for June?
