Dala horse - traditional Swedish icon - used to decorate for a Midsommer fest
Last night, driving home from a whimsically detailed backyard Midsommer celebration, I left the car windows down on the highway. The wind whipped and whooshed around my bare arms and legs, fluttering the fabric of my sundress, cooling my overheated body. In central Maine, there aren’t many nights in the year to enjoy that particularly delicious sensory immersion.
Love and shout outs to fathers of all kinds today, especially to mine and to the unwaveringly devoted father of my children.
Gratitude for a MUCH cooler morning!
Today’s UUSB Zoom church service finished with a wonderfully upbeat tune by Leah Wolfsong. So I’ll spend the day singing:
♫I have Joy - down in my soul♫
My 60th year in 60,000 words
Day 299: 114 words, TOTAL = 49,367; 10,633 remaining
