We'd hardly know around here -- the weather is not doing its usual thing, but finally we have green things in the garden and even a flower or two.
|Not my iris|
June, when you have a child in high school, is just one big stressor. This is the week of project presentations and exam revision, and starting next week are exams. Of course, I already did Grade 11 and shouldn't have to worry, but what can I do?
|The tulips are finished|
Other than worry about exams, I hope to go to the Art Gallery of Ontario to see the Georgia O'Keeffe exhibit. We have to go in June, although it runs through July, because our memberships expire at the end of June, and then we will probably switch over to the ROM. When the kids were little, we were members of both and enjoyed our discounts on weekend and summer camps, and were always happy to go have a quick visit to one or the other with our little distractible children. Now Arthur is too old for the family membership and really it's just me that visits, so I go back and forth: one year art, the next year museumy stuff. One can also get passes from the library, for emergency museum visits.
At the end of June, with exams in the past and the summer opening out before us, we will have our street party! Elaine will be running the book sale, Stephen's on the sound system and I will be fussing about food. It's always a good time.
In between, I hope to see some movies and have some fun meals with friends, do some puttering in the garden, knit a vintage accessory, and make my house a bit less cluttered than it is now.
