By 11:30, I'm up and going, productive, doing laundry, washing dishes, vacuuming, maybe knitting. Adam is winding down. He's ready for an early lunch and his nap. After his nap, he winds down more toward the end of his day. But as afternoon starts, I'm finally raring to go :) Errands, trips to town, soap-making, shipping orders, more laundry.
In late afternoon he starts making supper, and I anticipate a quiet evening of going for a pleasant bike ride for an hour, watching a movie with him, reading, and going to bed about 10:15. Thus, our day.

Summer is nearly gone, summer in which we vowed we would relax from the craziness of the school year. "I'm cutting out most of my weekly commitments!" I said. "I'll have lots of free time!" I promised myself. Now I'm saying, "I can't wait until school starts and we can have a steady routine." As if that will help the days to s l o w d o w n .
For those wondering if we ever sail anymore, or if perhaps our little sailboat sank in the Neuse, no! We were planning to do some work on her last spring, but Adam's leg injury threw that plan out the window. We'd already demasted her, though, so she has remained immobile since then. We're still planning to pull her out of the water and work on safety repairs and perhaps some paint, but it has been delayed several times. Pulling a boat requires an appointment with the local businesses who do that (with a lift) and the ones who can haul the boat across town to our yard (for whom our little boat is hardly worth the time to do it). We're now waiting to borrow a trailer from a friend to move the boat ourselves. We'll see. I'm still hoping to be sailing in her by New Year's, but there's no telling.
Have a great day and stay in your pajamas as long as you can, if you're that kind of person!
