I did get a good bit of writing and photography done. This summer has just flown by. I never seem to get as much done as it looks like I will on paper.
One thing we talked about at the beach is how each of us handle our work. I told Charlotte I've always admired how her and her Mom get things done so quickly. Take curtains, for example. If they decide that Charlotte needs new curtains, they get together and that day or the next, her whole house has new curtains; handsewn by them. Incredible!
Laurel and I have decided that the fun for us is in the planning. We're natural born organizers and list makers. She says she overthinks things way too much though, and I end up helping her with her projects. I get more projects done than she does; probably because I start and usually finish what I've started. But we have fun working together. Charlotte comes over to Laurel's and together they get things done. I'm telling you, Charlotte is a powerhouse. She inspires us.
Another funny thing that she told me at the beach is that I wear her out! No one has ever told me that before. She says I'm always asking her about the deeper meaning of her actions. She doesn't like to think much; just act. That's why she gets things done! I told her that she wears me out, because she's so full of energy and life. I guess it's good that we're all so different.
*The above photo is looking out my kitchen window at our cat Punkin. There aren't any curtains hanging in that window for the summer. I took the red gingham curtains and hung them in my art studio.
