Reading: The Park Service by Ryan Winfield on my phone using the Kindle app.

Watching: Le Tour de France. We've been enjoying our summer shows, of course, but for me July is all about Le Tour. I've been watching it every day, except for those dreaded rest days. My husband is not a fan.

Listening: to American Kids by Kenny Chesney. Loving everything about this song. In fact, I better pull it up on You Tube right now. It reminds me of Creeque Alley by the Mamas & the Papas.

Anticipating: our next camping trip. Mountains! Trees! Campfires! S'mores!

Loving: July. Because summer. I think July is my favorite month. Really.

Thinking: about switching from keeping a hand-written journal in a plain, spiral bound notebook to maintaining an electronic version on my laptop. Cons: it feels less personal and somehow less creative. Pros: it would be legible and searchable. It's bad when I can't even read my own handwriting.

Wishing: that summer could last more than a couple months.

What's current in your life?

I've been keeping a typed on-computer, on-line journal for years and now that Im used to it, it feels every bit as personal as the old notebooks, some of which got soggy and disintegrated in the floods. Ont he other hand, some of the virtual ones got lost when various computers died. I still can't find things when I want them. But I am not very organized.

Nor am I. I remain undecided. I rarely take my laptop with me when we go campering, so I'd still need to maintain a paper journal for use then. Is it silly to have two journals going at the same time? It is very different than anything I've ever done. We shall see...
