...SUMMER! Today was the first day when I felt like it was actually summer. Being a SAHM (stay at home mom), I didn't expect to notice a change. But there is a definite switch. YeeHAW!
Afternoon mugginess lends itself to time on the couch, with a tall glass of sun tea, in front of the fan, making a dent in my pile of novels.
Fresh vegetables are the foundation of each dinner (oh how I'm loving our CSA! I'll give Jake props on that one.).
A last minute plane ticket brought my sister home this week. I think we've spent 4 days together since Christmas '07! (We are very close and really write our blogs for each other, but am VERY glad you're along for the ride too!) Hazel is getting very spoiled with attention and her parents are getting spoiled as Aunt Marianne gives us a day for just-the-TWO-of-us tomorrow!
As I type, my husband is hacking and hacking and hacking away at shrubs which haven't been pruned in eons (a hazard of buying a home from my elderly greenery-lovin' grandparents).
Hazel and I morph into bathing beauties at least once a week as we practice our syncronized swimming. (swim cap a major PERK of buying a home from my elderly grandparents)
New life abounds as we finally got to bring home our KITTEN (holy cow... er... cat, I don't have any pics of her/him yet!), chickens continue to hatch (again, as I type... seriously... grumble grumble grumble... how many fowl do we NEED?) and our quail start laying eggs (first 6 eggs today!).
So, what are the signs of summer around your neck of the woods?
