Summertime, Such As it Is

Our dear friends from Denmark are here for a month, two weeks left, time flies.  It finally felt like summer when they walked in the door.  It is so wonderful to have them around.  Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are not doing much but we are having a ball being together. 

 Saturday morning was an ER trip with Rowan, making sure the central line was ok because she was in enough pain to be nervous.  When her pain is so bad she wants to go, we go.  It was stupidly busy but when we finally saw the Dr., it was amazing to find out how Lyme literate he was.  If only my kids had had the "classic" bulls-eye rash, we might have avoided being in the situation we are in now.  In any case, her line is fine, the pain just is what it is.

In the meantime, while we were gone, our beloved Percy Jackson went missing.  We are devastated.  We've canvassed the neighborhood every day, put up a ton of posters and a wanted post on the local shelter's Facebook site.  There is no sign of him yet and I can't sleep thinking I hear him and I can't stop crying.  There is nothing else we can do besides wait and see.  I hate it.
The County Fair is this week and I can't muster up any enthusiasm for it.  But Jenna and Signe want to go for the rides, so I will take them on wristband day and let them have a ball.  I am NOT a ride person. I always have visions of a crucial bolt flying out somewhere.  Mike is crazy busy this time of year and we wanted to go when our friend's band was playing but as it is Sunday night and Mike leads the beach service, it just isn't happening.  

Jenna is on a holiday from her Lyme meds until we get some test results back from Immunosciences to pinpoint her co-infections.  We go back on August 12th for a new game plan.

The lawn is beginning to look like a jungle, the garden is brimming with goodness, and the weather is perfect at the moment.  Traffic is still insane, I have gone out and about and can't believe the way people are driving.  It's madness.   It's summer on the Cape.
Of course, even if they are using a blinker, there is still no guarantee they are actually turning, so I exercise caution and all due diligence.  I've seen people leave their blinker on for miles.  The person behind me who honked because I didn't go really should have thanked me for saving their life instead.  Amateurs.  Ohhh and my new personal favorite, watching people who forgot they are towing a 30 foot boat trailer behind them thinking they have space to shoot into the rotary.  That one will wake you up.

Thank God for Netflix and Amazon Prime keeping us all sane and entertained.  Recent binge watching has been CSI Miami and Longmire.  Two shows we are all greatly enjoying.  Love seeing Starbuck from Galactica in something new. 

We have also enjoyed the occasional poker game and role playing session these past few weeks and morning coffee out on the deck and the sublime feeling of the outdoor shower.

We've barbequed, crock-potted, stove-topped, toaster ovened and otherwise avoided turning the oven on while it is hot out.  I think ordering out is up next, or perhaps an evening at the Falmouth Cinema Pub if anything decent is playing.  I'd love to go up to the Wellfleet Drive-In, but that's kind of a long haul and none of us would stay awake anyway.  

Hope you are having a great summer in whatever way makes you happy.  And hey, keep an eye out for our cat would you?
