Lavender Likes The Summer!


I love pretty dresses and this beauty has been made by Fixdesign. It's summer and it's hot. A lot of my friends are on holiday and my family is a mess. Seth's health still hasn't improved and Dawn only has me and our mother to fall back on. Her two best friends don't have time for her, because they're both about to deliver their babies. It's hard for my sister, but I'm trying to help her as much as I can. Calvin has been a huge support. I'm also getting to know his family a lot better. I love spending time with Brooke and Amber, they are really sweet. I never had a mother in law before who made me feel welcome. Usually they wanted me to go, because I wasn't good enough for their sons. Marie is different. To her it only matters that Calvin is happy.
Gina's struggling with a lot of things at the moment. I'm trying to help her as much as I can, but she doesn't talk easily. I'm giving her all the time she needs, even though I think I should know a little bit of what's going on, so I can help her. I love my friend and I'm glad we've been spending so much time together lately. I've also seen more of Tessa lately. She took Gina in when her aunt died. I like Tessa, she's twelve years older than me, but you can't tell by the way she looks. She's getting along with everyone and she's kind to Gina, like a mother figure. Gina needs someone like that.
I've also seen Franka again. She gave me my first vegetarian cooking lesson. Franks (which is her nickname) is so cool. I love the way she talks. She's relaxed and comfortable in her own skin. I asked if I could bring Jada as we normally cook together and that was no problem. Next week we're going to prepare a special dinner for our loved ones. That's going to be so much fun. I've already looked up some great designs we can use for the menus and I've started making decorations. We want our Christmas in July dinner to be cozy and romantic.
I've started summer school. The group is quite small. Our book club is complete though, because we all want to improve our writing skills. The lessons are mainly focused on how to present yourself. We have an Oral Presentations class which is scary, but fun. Plus we have to write several articles to pass Advanced Writing. Rian is our Creative Writing teacher. He's told us a lot more about his books. It's fascinating to know that our serious teacher has written so many horrible thrillers. Our weekly tea meetings are still going well. Lately he's been cheerful and he looks content. Maybe he's met someone, I don't really dare asking him about it yet.
So much has been going on and it's certainly an eventful summer. I can't believe July is almost over. So far the weather has been great and I spent a lot of time in beach bars, having drinks with the friends who are staying at home as well. It's so relaxing to go there after a day of hard work. The library is quiet and we're trying extra hard to invite people in. A lot of the card holders are using our national free book app on their tablets or phones instead of coming over to borrow books these days. We've still got enough budget left, but I hope they will come back once they realize they miss book recommendations and holding something real in their hands. Nothing can beat that. Meanwhile I'm having great conversations with Edward and Zoe. I love the summer season. Good weather makes everything a little bit better.
