Annnnd it’s birthday season! Some family birthday celebrations occurred in June and some will be later in the year, but we do have an 18th, 35th, 38th, and a 52nd birthday coming up this month and next. We’ll also have the year-before-40th anniversary this summer. No idea what to do for that!
Summer used to be family-visit season here as well, but some came in the Spring and will return in Autumn (until a hugely attended family wedding in December down south where “December” actually means “early September”), but only a couple of family members are coming here for a brief visit — on July 26th/27th.
These Midwesterners will see the ocean no matter what — it’s so rare for them to come here — but I will have to concoct a Plan B for those two days, because northeastern New England weather has even more moods than the ocean.
Suffice it to say we took a Californian Sheldon Cooper-type train enthusiast / engineer on a summer train ride around a beautiful lake and mountain.. in rain and fog!
Anyway, wishing you all wonderful gatherings to look forward to — and/or a simply great weekend!!
