Nearly one month into the summer and it’s almost impossible to remember coats and the fact that we have stretches where it is dark from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. We have had such amazing weather lately that has made both walking through the yard and sitting in the bleachers such a delight. I never want to be inside. It has been a joy to watch Sean coach Ceara’s summer softball team this year and to see what a good time these girls have had playing. Win or lose, their bench is filled with laughter and ridiculous jokes and we have all had a great time – even Teegy who happily plays with a sister of one of Ceara’s team mates on any playground they can find.
The garden is in full bloom and all around the yard, we have been finding little surprises: a random, tiny blueberry bush with one ripe blueberry; wild blackberries on the verge of ripening; bright white mushrooms (I think) popping up through the leaves on the edge of the back woods and a gorgeous, pink hydrangea blooming in the woods along our driveway. Wish it didn’t have to go by so fast. xo
