We've been having some hot weather recently. Surprising, I know. It is almost July, after all. But it's always a little challenging finding ways to keep cool in the city, especially with so many hours of daylight this far north. I'm thankful that our apartment isn't quite as hot as most, though I do constantly throw the covers on and off at night.
|Dog days of summer...|
Another challenge hot weather brings is all the creepy-crawlies. It seems like everywhere I turn, quite a few fruit flies/regular flies/gnats/etc. are buzzing around my head. Can't leave food out for any length of time, including baby messes. Wouldn't it be nice to leave this messy house and come back in the fall when the flies are gone?
Well...we're getting ready to do just that! We fly to the U.S. on July 9th, which just happens to be a certain person's first birthday. Seems like an appropriate way to celebrate his two (unofficial) nationalities, crossing from one to the other.
Meanwhile, I'm at that stage in the travel preparations where I want to get EVERYTHING and NOTHING done at the same time. Let's see how much we can cram into the next week! OR let's see how much of it can be put off until fall!
I HAVE to see so-and-so before I go! OR I could just wait another 2 months, since we've already waited all year!
Also, I recently
dumped placed all of my baggy but not maternity appropriate summer clothes into a suitcase to make packing easier later on. That leaves me with some interesting wardrobe options for the remainder of our time here! :)
So that's what's going on around here. If I have time, I'll catch up on some posts, as birthday month continues.
OR, you might not hear from me again for a few weeks! :)
