My niece, my youngest son, and my mother and I spent a wonderful day on the coast, walking along a path that threads along the bluffs north of Laguna Beach.
At the end of the day, we went out to dinner for delicious Mexican food.
Back at home, Mozart is having a "geek day" as they call it. His friend is visiting from San Jose and they are working on a new invention for audio.
So you would think things would be quiet around home with one son gone, and one mischievous pit bull gone. But it's still pretty noisy. I've been helping Mozart in the music biz, subbing in summer school, and other assorted responsibilities. The day zooms by.
Next door I hear the laughter of children playing in the backyard sprinklers, and secretly wish I could join them. I miss those long summer days of childhood. But adulthood has its own excitements.
Yet before summer is over, I'm going to put on my suit and run through the sprinklers.
