What If It Was Always Awesome June? Hello Summer!

“I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June.” — L.M. Montgomery

When one is retired from working as an employee, one would think that the seasons, including summer, would all blend together.  Although my time is more flexible, it is not entirely disconnected from the rhythm of the seasons

JuneWe are not big vacation takers but prefer to do mini-trips.  Some of this has to do with the amount of travel I did with my work before retiring.  It was great.

But even then, we road warriors reluctantly tolerated the non-frequent flyers at the airports headed off for their summer adventure.

In addition, since I flew, literally, around the world for my vocation, a hop in the car for a couple of nights at a quiet Kansas B&B is so much less complicated.

I have been blessed to see a lot of places, and although there are places I would still like to visit, a good book, my journal, and quiet are my version of vacation in this season.

Summer Seasons – June

This year may be different.  My husband is talking about a significant road trip, where I may take a few days to fly out and join him.  As an educator, tied to a classroom for nine months, I get the feeling my dear spouse needs a serious break.

I like road trips, but there are some projects I want to complete here at home.  Thus that much time away will not work.   Not the least of which is this book I am working on.  Some time to myself at home may help push that along!

So this year my version of quiet time may be my own personal staycation, with a flying flourish to top it off!

What plans have you made this year?  I hope it includes some writing, some rescuing a story or two as you go!  Let me know in the comments!
