1. We had a wedding! It's been a couple of weeks now, but we still don't have any of the "official" photography - just phone pics so far. Showers started to fall about two minutes before the wedding. Fortunately, the rain was not heavy, and stopped right after the procession was over.
The officiant had a great ceremony - just the right length, and very appropriate for the occasion.
I've been thinking about it and enjoying the memories ever since.

It was a lovely time - the quick shower actually cooled the temps by about ten degrees - our daughter was radiant, and it was a joy to spend the evening with family and friends.
3. This week: Quick, efficient navigation of doctors' appointments and some medical testing for both of us.
4. I am checking things off on my to-do list before going back to school. Only eleven days left. Why does summer go so fast?
About ten years ago, a former colleague made the comment that, for teachers, "After the Fourth of July, it's all downhill." I saw her this week and told her that, ever since that remark, the second half of summer has been ruined for me! She just laughed and said she's felt the same way, especially this year for some reason. It's true, the summer does seem to be all downhill after the Fourth - but I'd never heard it quantified that way.
5. And finally, everybody needs to experience this wonderful taste sensation, when summer cantaloupes and tomatoes are both at their finest. Try it - you'll be surprised at how good they are together.
