Saturday morning post

The Palisades on Hudson near Piermont, NY

The last few days were so busy with first summer vacation activities, it stunned me to see that there was no time left to even read my e-mails...
Instead of watching butterflies I run all over the place fixing what needs fixing before everybody is settled into summer mode!


Last minute prep for my youngest camper and the organization of our summer travels have left me without a minute to myself.

Every year I seem to get surprised by this moment, when school is suddenly out and my children expect an entertainment program.
A summer ritual is to go to the community pool and swim and splash and hold out as long as possible in waters, I hardly want to put my toes in...

A local town puts up an art fair every beginning of the summer, it was again a lovely but hot show and we saw many pretty sculptures and paintings.

We visit a nearby fun park and summer is upon us! We sit at night on our deck and marvel at the sounds and the stars, suddenly so much closer! We burn our torches and by a chilled glass of Chardonnay we count our blessings!

There are many firsts every summer, like walking barefoot in the sand and just let the sun give us the first sun kissed look!
Eating out on the deck and enjoying the garden season extends our living quarters for good six month of the year!

Now I am organized, forms are filled out, many checks have been paid, the summer rental is completed, we are ready to go, where ever this summer will take us!

What will this summer bring to you?

Wishing you all a summer sunshine filled weekend!

  1. My sweet friend, I, too, have been very busy with Art Basel, travel and so forth. This composition of pictures truly inspired my day.
    It's so hot here I think I shall go out in the garden and jump in the pool to cool down. Have a wonderful weekend, my sweet;-)

  2. Very nice images Victoria, so much going on and it is good to just take a deep breath!! Great inspirations!

  3. Beautiful photos. It's so important to stop and breathe. Let us try to live in the moment!

  4. I love the photos! Summer really does seem to sweep us off our feet. I've been busy with class but that ends early on Tuesday, so I'm not sure what to do. But I will be going home in August to visit my parents :) I look forward to hearing about your adventures.

  5. Oh, wonderful! The Hudson is so beautiful! I forget how hard my parents worked to keep us entertained during the summer, I think the pool did a lot of it, we just walked down the street and could spend hours there! XO!

  6. Yes, the Summer holidays. Normally we go to France all Summer but not this year! So I am hoping the Scottish weather is kind to us. Have a lovely weekend!

  7. Isn't Summer the BEST?! Love those animal statues...and all your great photography!

  8. Have a beautiful sunshine filled week-end as you so deserve. Beautiful photos and can't wait to see more!
