The humidity has returned. July has been a beautiful month this year, low humidity, sunny skies, temperatures ranging in the low twenties. We have been very lucky, but now the humidity has returned with the heat. The summer kitchen is back in business.
Proud of my self-discipline, I am back to my daily walk, after focusing on company for several days. The walk is so habitual now, that on the days that I do not manage to take my stroll, I feel a vague psychic discomfort. The exercise is not much, in the scheme of workouts and fitness regimes, but it is regular and makes a world of difference.
This morning the bills sitting on my desk have received attention, but will have to wait their turn to be paid. We are stretching ourselves to our financial limit for Terra’s wedding, but luckily not beyond. When Luna got married we experienced the same sort of stretch, and can honestly say we have no regrets. Nor will there be any for this happy event. Of course, love and good wishes are there for our girls, in endless supply.
The linens used for company are folded away in their drawer. My clean laundry simmers on the line and will be collected during the evening cool. So relaxed has been my day that I actually had a short nap during the afternoon. It was delicious.

"I realized early on that the academy and the literary world alike — and I don’t think there really is a distinction between the two — are always dominated by fools, knaves, charlatans and bureaucrats. And that being the case, any human being, male or female, of whatever status, who has a voice of her or his own, is not going to be liked."
