LEAD OFF

-My Week In Baseball is a little lean this week bc I’ve been working working and not watching as much and also, there was Wimbledon and soccer. But, baseball. Yes. And stoked abt this forthcoming book from one of my fave baseball writers, Stacey May Fowles!

PLAY BALL!

6/27: METS v NATS
-Didn’t turn this on until the top of the seventh and Nats were winning 11–4. Before I got home and turned it on, I was out w/my family doing some sunset/cloud watching. This is something we like to do everynight in the summer if/when we can. Take time and be quiet. Watch. And sunsets get even better once the sun goes down. The skies/cloud begin to tint even more. It’s downright glorious. Watched Wimbledon and soccer today. And baseball nights. I’ve missed Bryce bc I haven’t been watching as much baseball bc beach house and finishing my novel. I did my ballet stretches and I was diffusing lavender + peppermint in my oil diffuser. Chill, cozy. In the Cubs game, Bryant hit three HRs. Nats won 11–4 and it was time for the kiddos to go to bed.
