as promised

So, there was birthday cake way back in late June (pre-Disneyland).


And then, come July, the birthday boy - the very fruit of my loins - was being used as a projectile with his cousin on the Delta in northern California.

There was this sexy lily:


And this wall. That I climbed. All by myself. Do you see the size of those little itty-bitty people standing next to it? There was a bell at the top for climbers to ring. It was my Oprah moment.

There was a trip to Santa Cruz, where I lived for five years during - and a little after - my undergraduate years. Oh, the stories. Oh, the humanity. (That's my husband on his sweet ride near Natural Bridges State Park. I lived just a couple of blocks from there for a while).



There was a pool, and there were children. Many, many children.



There was one of my oldest and dearest friends, and her talented, pie-baking hands.


There was nautical therapy.
And there was me, doing my thing.

Oh, look. My boy has inherited my freaky E.T. toes.




There was, in fact, MUCH nautical therapy.



And there was the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield. Yes, People, there is a factory where those miraculous beans are born. Willy Wonka has nothing on this place, I tell ya.



And then it was back home to Arizona, where there was/is handiwork therapy.



Introducing Bootstrap Bill. Remember when he was just a little fuzzball?

My old dude, Zzari, should need no introduction, but perhaps he does anyway. I love the lighting in the evenings during monsoon season, which is in full swing now.

And that's about it for my summer thus far, folks.
