it has been unseasonably warm for the last few days...

"it has been unseasonably warm for the last few days...and today again, a romantic sunrise, clouds edged in crimson just before the sun rose between two banks of soft gray. now at half past nine the sea is that ineffably calm satin blue and the clouds have vanished. purity and peace." may sarton the house by the sea

i needed a break from reading book after book about the same subject matter(the south, slavery, hatred, violence, oppression, etc...).
the title of this autobiography caught my eye at the used bookstore & for 25 cents i figured why not? it is a journal of the author's east coast move from her inland new hampshire home to a house on the seacoast of maine. thru this journey of solitude & self discovery she re-awakens her creative passion & spirit.  
a light summer read, some of my fave subjects
& i miss the east coast (that i love!).
i'm enjoying it so far.

the beginning of this quote is especially true in that it has been crazy hot the last couple of weeks.
the brownsugars & i have started transitioning into our new homeschool year & we are off to a great start so far.
but there is still quite a bit of summer left in us that we just cannot let go of yet ;)
