Goodbye July pt 376 or so OR the Good Bits

22 Jul

I want to blog, but there is too much happening in my head for me to make sense of it at the moment.  Instead of trying to make sense of it all, I am procrastinating, going back through my drafts folder and decided it was time to either hit delete or finish the post and publish it.  This is one of the oldest posts that made it through the delete pile, primarily because I felt like flicking through photos!
This post was the end of a series of why I hate July and it seemed timely that I post it, even if it is almost a year after I wrote it!

So finally after all of the trauma of moving to the other side of the world and then having that brand new shiny world fall apart, it was time to get over the stress and just get out there and have fun.

The farm WAS beautiful, even if I didn’t want to live there, in the middle of nowhere.

Welcome "Home"

Fishing in "Our" Creek

Our cottage was quaint.

The Cottage

The interior was not me at all, but quaint.

The Lounge and Dining Area

A Giant Kitchen (The kitchen inspired eating out!)

The parks nearby were amazing, even if they were completely devoid of any other children!

Posing in the Park

Flying Fun

Playing in the Sand Pit

Relaxing in the Shade

Then there were fun parks,

Rides

Running

Watching

More Watching

Then visits to beautiful places nearby.

Paddling in the Delaware

Walking in Water

Living, albeit so briefly in Princeton (or in the middle of nowhere near Princeton to be more accurate) we couldn’t not visit New York.  We managed to visit on 5 separate occasions.

It sounds strange, but having never really wanted to go to New York, I fell in love with the city – the hustle and bustle, the people, the food and the overwhelming sense of WOW!

Watching the Rides

On Top of the World

Waiting for Chitty Chitty Bang Band

Waving to the Coast Guard

View from the Empire

Despite the madness, I had a fantastic time.  It was a time of complete turmoil and upheaval.  I think I am ready for more insane adventures!

If anyone is interested in the background of the posts, here they are

July is OVER

Goodbye July (pt 1) or Why I Hate July (pt 2)

Goodbye July (pt 2) or Why I Hate July (pt 3)

Goodbye July (pt 3) or Why I Hate July (pt 4)

Goodbye July (pt 4) or Why I Hate July (pt 5)

The best part about finally finishing this draft is that I think I have moved on.  To be honest, I have been too busy to actually notice that it is July!  Now that I have been prompted to think about July the pain I was feeling this time last year and the years prior to that, is passing.  In fact I think the action of getting the story out of my head where I could constantly dwell upon it into a space where I could read and forget has helped me to move on.  I have actually enjoyed looking at the photos from our US adventure.  In fact if anything, I want to go back and explore more.

I really must get organised and update more photos to Flickr from our US adventure.  This is less than a 1/4 of the photos!
