Weekend Things ~ Beach Day

Having been on vacation for half of July, we were way behind on our beach quota for the summer.

With a minimum of resistance, I got the troops mustered and out the door.

M, who spent most of the week going to concerts, and who is also a teenager and therefore perpetually in need of a nap, spent most of the day curled in a towel reading.

The water was too cold and the waves too rough for me to go in above my waist.

(I must be getting old.)

I spent the day sketching and reading a deliciously escapist book--I've been on a serious nonfiction jag for a long time; it felt good to read something completely fun.

As always, everyone else was ready to go before I was...I could have lasted a couple more hours, at least. One of these days, I'm going to go to the beach all by myself, with a big stack of books and and umbrella.

P.S. I have a guest post up on the Literary Mama blog today .


  1. Looks like a great day! I hope you get a few more of those in before summer comes to an end :)

  2. yes... we are way behind on our beach quota as well. Your beach looks wonderful and it looks like your boys are thoroughly enjoying it!!!

    1. It was a good day. Hope you get caught up on beach-going as well!
