Between the Ides of Iunius and Juneteenth

Not much house restoration gets done in June at 118 Henry Street. The end of school, the start of summer swim season, and vacation time cycle thru our year like snow or leaves or rain.

This past week, 2 away swim meets and 3 days at the beach, was like drinking chocolate syrup straight from the squeeze bottle. Powerful sweet, almost too much energy, and a day at home to come down from the buzz.
