I'm away from Lowell, but I am on Martha's Vineyard in my parents' house where I used to live, so it is like being home in another way.
Nothing too profound to report; we go to the beach in the afternoon, we go to the thrift shops, flea market. We get coffee, we visit book stores and sometimes eat dinner or breakfast out. Mom makes great scrambled eggs so we stay home a lot in the mornings :)
Outdoor showers, warm days, cool evenings. The sounds of cicadas in the day, crickets at night, the occasional June bug bouncing off the screen. The wind in the oak trees, the smell of earth. Sand in my pant cuffs. I see old friends, I shop familiar stores. D likes reading on the deck, I like chatting with my mom. Dad goes for a sail.
Last night we went to Illumination Night, the Agricultural fair started today, the fireworks are tomorrow night, yes we come this week every year on purpose :)
I am enjoying myself thoroughly, but I do look forward to getting home to Chester and moving into my new studio. But also, I love to see D relax, I wish I had the power to give him another month off!
