I could not get motivated today. A very busy week is coming up and I should have used the day to get my ducks in a row. Instead I used the day to be . . . summery? As in, summer vacation mode? Coffee with a long-ago friend with whom I have recently reconnected. A little reading. A trip to the store for last minute ingredients for supper. A load of laundry. Praying. Lots of pondering. Not much else.
Summer is upon us.
It kind of sneaked up on me this year, probably because of the way our school year wound down. And we're still not totally finished! These past couple of weeks, Bekah and her friend have been taking driver's ed (getting up early . . . every day . . . eek!), but I am hoping that 10th grade will be completed next week.
We have been enjoying summer meals. I have another cookbook recipe (two actually!) to share soon. Are you eating summery foods?
Just because Ron finished the library doesn't mean he has run out of projects!
Last summer, he didn't garden at all. Having just moved to Pineapple House in late April, there was much to do and starting a garden wasn't a priority. This year, however, he built two raised beds and has planted tomatoes, peppers, and sweet potatoes. (He may add a couple beds more next summer.) He also created a little "entrance" to the garden area in the side yard. We are considering some sort of trailing plant to enhance the entrance: clematis, honeysuckle, wisteria? We are open to suggestions!
There will be lots of coming and going the rest of this week. It may be a bit busier than I like it, but it is always a good thing to take time for people.
What has your summer held so far? Projects? People? Pondering? Hopefully, you'll find a day or two to just be
