******************************************************************************************************************************
















the summer malaise has me firmly in it's grip,
I have completely given up to it, I've lost my creativity, have absolutely no goals right now,
don't even want to go shopping,
just wish I could get on a cruise ship without a destination...

time spent quietly appeals to me now.

I hope all this eventually dissolves,
otherwise,
it will absolutely ruin my reputation !

  8. It's OK Marsha. Summer does that. I'm leaving for England tomorrow and am busy making lavender wands with Chloe and haven't even begun to pack for the next two months. Go with it and have some relaxing summer times. :)

  9. Marsha don't worry about wiling a way a few days and what perfect time to do that then the summer. Once in a while I think you need to waste a little time before getting back to the grindstone. I personally do it most Sundays!

  11. Come back to Oregon to escape the high heat and humidity...relax without the malaise and recharge. It is 80 degrees in Portland today with a forecast of no heat higher than 84 degrees in the next week, relatively low humidity and no rain. Lots is happening here all summer (right now the annual Waterfront Blues Festival)! Seriously, Leslie in Portland
