true vacation

We went to Maine again. That's how long it's been! We went to Maine and had a lovely week doing just about nothing. I took naps. Christopher did some writing. I read a little. Christopher wrote some more. We made pasta from scratch. I started a blanket. It wasn't enough time. I feel terrible saying that, since this was the fifth week I've taken off this summer, but it was the first of those weeks that I really felt able to relax. Italy was good until my eye fell apart. And my trip to Haystack was overshadowed by bad weather and my cold. Next summer we are thinking that a month might in Maine be nice. Maybe we can sublet our apartment, and not worry about the lack of income, and we can settle in and just be.

That sounds like paradise! I'm so glad you got to relax a bit, and hope you're feeling refreshed!

Maine looks so beautiful, I would like to see more! Sounds like a good idea to find out how to spend more time there. And the carpet you're knitting looks so pretty. Good to hear that your eye is healing.

I did that this summer! I sublet my apartment to a friend who's thinking about moving to the city and took the entire month of July off to spend two weeks in Seattle and two weeks in Maine. It was glorious and I HIGHLY recommend it. It's not like there's much going on in theatre around here during the summer...
