I can't believe it! Monday was the first day of summer but my summer break is almost half over already. Seven weeks in, I feel like it's just starting. The first summer session is wrapping up. We take our final tomorrow morning and have a blissful three days break before the next session starts. My summer session is finishing quietly. I'm doing as well as I hoped. Taking Spanish as a summer intensive was probably one of my better ideas. It's much easier to focus when I only have one other class and in a little over six weeks I'll be done with Spanish forever!
I'm not sure how I'll be spending my break/weekend. There have been talks about a day trip north and the nephew's dedication is on Sunday. I'll keep you posted on how things shake out. This past weekend was absorbed by a friends wedding. It was quite the event. The bride was beautiful. The groom was handsome. The party was fantastic. Twenty of our close friends dancing attendance, wearing their finest. What more could you want? And then there was the sunset on the drive home. Yellows and golds filled the evening sky. Little wispy clouds and airplane streaks filled the horizon. A stunning sight if ever I saw one.
Sadly my only pictures of the day aren't worthy of anything but facebook. My own camera was sadly down at my parents' house haven been forgotten there the weekend before. All the beauty around me and all I had to capture it was a sad, awkward, borrowed camera whose battery died on me before the reception even started. I did take a few photos of the sunset with my phone. But everyone knows how camera photos turn out...bad.
The moral of this story is clear. Don't ever forget your camera and if you do forget it, it is worth the sacrifice to drive back and get it instead of waiting on someone else to bring it to you. Because there may never be another sunset as beautiful as the one you're seeing right now. And if there is? You might not be around to see it.
