July: halfway through the year

The last few weeks have been busy with few things concrete enough to post about (or photograph).   As we are about halfway through the year, and our busiest weeks of summer are now past, I am hoping to savor this week, to reestablish routine and remind myself of the things I want to accomplish this year. 

I haven't crossed much off my list of goals for the year, but I have crossed off a few.  It is nice to have a benchmark, to know I am not just treading water.  And there is still half the year to enjoy, a little time to reach a few more goals. 

I see my kids spending a lot of time bored, with their imaginations limited by charging cords and gaming limits.

I think, I hope, we will spend some time in the next two weeks, offline: drawing, hiking, walking, reading, knitting, exploring, photographing, tasting, smelling, hearing.  Maybe I'll finally get the finishing done on this beautiful jacket.  I'll let you know!

The bowl of threads is as fascinating as the sweater. You've chosen lovely colors to work with. Hope you find time to finish.

Can't wait to see that jacket finished -- it looks like it's going to be beautiful! You're clearly a glass-half-full person -- noting that there's still a half year left, rather than wailing that the year is half gone. I love your perspective!
