that sweet slow summer feeling is here.
freinds arriving back in town to relax and share stories
long evenings, light till after nine
(perfect for walking on the beach with a new lover)
stone fruit ~ fragrant nectarines, but still not a patch on the ones i ate as a child.
talk of day trips to only-in-summer destinations
the anticipation of long days on a sunny veranda
gin and tonic
strawberries and cold fruit juice

trying to get my head around how i might bake a carrot cake
on a morning when i would be better just drifting

it was still last night. so still.

i have a new cousin.
he is large and loud and very south african.
i like him.
i wasn't sure if i would, but i do.

i have a sister back.
she's wild and different and as great as ever.
she speaks italian like it doesn't take any effort.
it's good to have her back.

time is moving so quickly.
soon christmas, then a new year.
how exciting...
a new adventure to embark on.
