It’s August this week? It’s 69 degrees this afternoon? There’s lots of things about this summer that don’t quite make sense. Because I wouldn’t mind it being autumn all year round, I won’t complain about the unseasonable temps. But if this summer could slow way down before it’s over, that would sure be nice.
In the meantime, we’ll just have to cram as much fun as possible into what’s left.
I think I’ve spent more time on the lake this summer than ever before…who knew just how many lakefront spots there really are around CL? Above, Wednesday’s glittering sunset from Gordon Park. We found a little pier to watch and take pictures from, with just a few others hanging out. Absolutely gorgeous! Definitely something to repeat before the summer’s out.
On Thursday, a little volunteering with some co-workers for First Book, a DC-based non-profit that provides access to new books for children in need. We were hosted here in Cleveland by the kind staff at Kids in Need. It was a fun morning of racing around their warehouse and putting shipments together for local schools from a very random assortment of donated books. Kind of like a dusty/dirty game of hide-and-seek that ended with a broken toenail…but that’s probably why you shouldn’t wear lululemon and Tom’s when volunteer instructions ask for old clothes and sturdy close-toed shoes. Oops.
Followed by some mother-daughter shopping at Beachwood Place, because once you’ve done something positive with your life, it’s totally okay to spend all your money on things you don’t necessarily need :).
And on Friday, an Indians game with my favorite CL blogger Heather and her lovely husband. Due to my side job as everyone’s pet sitter, we were gifted pretty great seats behind home plate. Has it’s perks! Although the game went on and on and on, it was an exciting Indians-win at the end. And the Jimi Hendrix fireworks show was well worth sticking around for. Let’s be honest, I’m mostly there for the sunshine and fireworks anyway :).
So there are some activities of late. Let’s do food here next time.
