summer lovin'

sweet summer heat
and a silent house...
this week has been a bit crazy
with a happy canada day
complete with fireworks
and a lost {and happily found & returned} i-phone
and sparklers catching our beach blanket aflame
{just a little, but enough to totally freak me out}
the rest of the weekend
spent napping
and de-cluttering
and attempting to placate a dog with hurt feelings
about the new kitten that has taken up residence
in his house
{and is allowed to go upstairs, where he has never been allowed}

i sit here now
at the tail end of a sunny sunday
wishing the weekend could be just little longer
wanting to savor it just a little bit more,
to wrap up the remnants like an all day sucker
to put in my pocket and save for days
like mondays...
