Trying to Settle Down

Oh wow … I skipped through all of July without blogging !

I think I’m getting old … I can’t keep up with all the activities any more … I tried quick posts on Facebook and Instagram – the new technology for the year, and that worked for a while but I think even that is falling behind now …

Anyway, in a nutshell … 


We had an unexpected trip to Trinidad at the beginning of summer, and then three weeks later flew across to San Diego, California for a soccer tournament.  We stayed an extra couple of days so the boys could see more of California … 


  So our routines have sort of flown out the door, and we’re not quite ready to settle back down yet … 

Tin will be starting his senior year in high school … aaarrghhh!! really???  senior already?  Maybe I’m the one who’s not ready for it.  He doesn’t seem to be bothered by it, which drives me crazy, because there’s so much to put in place before the school year starts!  And .. he’s finally got his license!  No, that’s not his car – he’s just sitting in it! 😂my stress level and blood pressure has been up these past few months, and now that he can drive out on his own, it’s double-double pressure … and no, he’s not bothered by it, because of course, this euphoria of being able to drive around on his own, with friends, anywhere, is ultimate freedom … *sigh* what to do?


 

So, I’m going to make myself settle back in a routine … and we’ll start that with working on the blog again, if for no other reason is that it makes me sit and write – or I should say, type.  There’s something about the fingers on the keys and the clicking of the keyboard, isn’t there?  Sometimes, I just want to re-type a page or two of documents just to type and exercise my fingers. Yeah, weird … 

I’ll work on a photo recap of the summer up till now .. That will also give me a chance to sort through the thousand and more photos that I took these past few months …


Have a good weekend, all !

 

 

‪World Environment week … Save Our Oceans .. I Live By the Sea

More on the #SaveOurOceans exhibition.

A youth photography contest to show where they live, by the sea.   And they have some great photos there, better than what I could have taken.

Like this – my favourite … ‘Perpetual Pleading’ … and the Baltic Sea one …

LoL … yes, Hubby did always say that crabs were aliens.  I should show this to him …

 

Sad to see the effects of pollution on the waters and oceans …

I shall be more mindful of cleaning up after myself when at the beach.
