I’ve only been in three spots this month: the garden house, NYC, and Frances Slocum State Park. Although technically, I’ve spent a few nights in my brother’s guest bedroom when it has been just too hot to stay in Serenity, so maybe that’s a fourth spot. Either way, picking a “Best of” place is impossible, because each was great in different ways.
NYC was a terrific tourist weekend. It didn’t feel like real life at all, and I didn’t try to get any work done — we just touristed hard. If I was judging the best of the month based only on being a tourist (well, and maybe on the deliciousness of the food I was eating), New York would have to win. But Frances Slocum was time hanging out with my niece, and I so adore her — she’s great company. And then the garden house has been a delightful place to spend time.
Hmm, I think I need to try a different approach to my best of this month. Instead of best place, best moments:
- Picking blueberries with my brother in companionable silence.
- Talking to my niece about friendship and names and shoe fashions.
- Playing video games, specifically Skyforge, with my nephew.
- Watching my friend completely geek out about classic cars in NYC.
- Watching the fireflies at the garden house.
I’m not sure those are in the right order, but they’re the moments I hope I remember from June of 2017.
Absolutely awesome moments and memories… NYC is on my bucket list, and I love picking fruit. Fireflies bring back memories from my childhood. Thanks for this …hugs, T
It’s been a lovely peaceful month. Lots of blueberries! And hugs to you, too!

Thought about you yesterday when I passed the blueberries for sale stand. Didn’t have time to stop unfortunately.
Those all sound like good June activities.
My June is mostly about work. I did attend the Color Run 5k in Louisville in support of my grandkids. That was great fun
That sounds fun! I saw pics from a bubble run yesterday and thought that looked like fun, too.

I think three spots sounds like a good amount. I always imagined van life as being something where I’d stick around in one spot for a couple weeks or longer before moving on. I wanted time to really be at a place, to explore an area as much as I wanted to and to not be pressured to move on to the next spot too soon. Plus, my goal was never to spend lots of time driving down the road.
