Summer Fun

Have I ever mentioned that I love summer?  Because I do, I really, really do.  Granted, in Winnipeg, it's fairly short, but still... it's hot and lovely baby!  Good things happen in the summer, because it's so much more relaxed and free.

What's on board this summer?  Lots of time at the splash pad, and the park.  Even if he's getting to an age where he wishes to interact with me less while we're out, it's still nice to spend time with the boy. While he splashes and plays, I can read a book, or draw, or write, or I can just lay around and enjoy the sunshine. That's good too.

We also just got a family membership to the Y, so we are there quite a bit, too.  The boy is in a summer program for the next several weeks at school, so while he's there, I go work out and try to get this old body of mine overhauled and back to fighting weight.  I'm sure I'll be posting about that too, as time goes on, because I find if I talk about it more, I'm more accountable.  When I was younger, motivation wasn't an issue, but these days, it seems that there are so many things that I like to get done when the boy's at school that I feel like something's gotta give, you know? Often times, it's the workout, which is the sad thing.  I need to do something about that though, for health reasons, and just because working out makes me feel good.

Another thing I'm excited about this summer is the Winnipeg Fringe festival, which starts today!  I've really become a fan of it the last few years, and it's something I enjoy immensely. I love the chance to see live theatre, and it's less expensive and more accessible, so it's really awesome. Plus, the vibe in the area is so exciting and electric.  How can you not pick up on it?

Anywho, just thought I'd check in, since I've been a bit of a lazy bum, and give you a glimpse of what was going on in our little world. I hope in the next little while to have some other exciting news for you, but we'll have to see how it all pans out. In the meantime, leave a comment telling me what YOU like about summer!
