Cold-brewed iced coffee. Something I’ve been yearning for all summer and have been paying out of the… Behind for because my attempts to make it at home failed. I’m going to try this way soon enough.

The plan was to drag myself (and the kids, of course) to the park this morning. As much as I’m not a morning person, the fact remains that we live in an apartment and the kids need to get out and play in the earth. Yesterday it rained. And rained. And just when I thought it was over, it rained some more. No way am I bringing three kids to the park just to return, muddy and exhausted, to clean up before even hitting the door. So today is an inside kind of day, and we’ll spend it cleaning, writing, and playing.
