June was really great, for the most part! I think my head is still spinning, though!

I made the mistake of deleting all the backed-up photos from my camera the other day, which meant that I had to re-download a bunch of photos & videos to include in my 1 Second Everyday video for the month. Ugh! I've done that at least once before and it's a pain... you'd think I'd have learned.
The month ended with some pretty shitty news/family drama regarding my dad. It's been a strained relationship for most of my life, with some OK parts, but eventually degradation led to estrangement, which doesn't even matter now because his Alzheimer's is so bad that he doesn't recognize anyone. Distance (in every definition of the word) complicates things, as do other strained relationships, but at least he's physically safe and being cared for now.
The month also ended with a wonderful family video chat -- Kate from her new digs in Edinburgh, Maddy from their place in Orange NSW, Rusty from the California coast (literally, he was showing us the waves), and Ali from our back yard, while I sat in the Garden Room.
