Ship’s Log–July 7th


Summer has certainly settled in over the Jersey Shore. Today was hot, humid, and very sunny. I got a little bit of a sunburn during my hour walk on the boardwalk. I’ll live.

I’m finding it very hard to avoid eating too many treats, what with all this summer activity. This morning it was a scone at a cute bakery with the kids before their rehearsal. The hour walk in the sun was in part penance for those unplanned for empty calories. Yesterday it was soy ice cream. Tomorrow the Things want to make brownies.

It’s going to be a long summer of having too little self-control around the treats, and I am going to work hard to balance it with lots of activity.
