So summer has descended upon our little mountain town. June was all rain, July is hot and sweaty and BUGGY.
Living on top of a mountain is a joy, but it comes at a price. And that price is this: every single thing is intense. If it is hot, it is boiling and dusty and if it is cold it is torrential rain, hail, snow, lightening, thunder. And if it is any combination of hot and cold the bugs come out and they are crazy bad this year. July is all about no-see-ums and mosquitoes. No-see-ums are sent to earth by Lucifer himself. These tiny black demons can get through any minuscule crack, and screens are no match. In August the black flies will join the party.
Other than the bugs, life is grand here in our town. I am in three shows at the Theatre in the Site. Two of the shows are my solo pieces, and I am also in the evening show that we do on weekends. Rehearsal was intense (naturally) but now that the shows are up and running I am having a blast. I work with a fantastic company. We honestly all get along and I look forward to seeing my co-workers every day.
The girls are thriving and the wonderful friend we have engaged to babysit them three days a week is fabulous.
So, life is good. Except for the bugs. Which is why I have sucked at blogging lately. When life is good there is no need to talk about it, I guess.
