What can I say? It’s summer, and I don’t think life has been any richer than it is right now. So much glorious weather, glorious food, glorious play. Behind the scenes I’m a crazy woman, working day and night on something really exciting, really consuming, but right now on the main stage it’s still summer through and through. And enjoying it with these little munchkins is objective #1.
This summer seems to be an equal mixture of 2 types of days around here- 1) warm, sunny blue-skied days that demand burgers on the grill and icy margaritas, and 2) dark, stormy days that rain absolute buckets. Tough to decide which I like more, but I’m pretty sure it’s the rainy days. I don’t doubt that we’ve set a rainfall record this year, and as far as I’m concerned, the more, the better. It has a way of feeding my soul.
And is there anything better, on those blustery, rumbly days, than a good old fashioned puppet show? I think not. We enjoyed an especially fun one this week.
What else on a rainy day? Why sew of course. Rain pitter pattering on the leaves outside my sewing room window is nothing short of heavenly. Unless of course, it means halting whatever treehouse decorating project is underway (that apparently involves slathering one’s self in school glue). Then we’re inside again and there’s no shortage of things to do.
The kids are definitely growing like weeds, but you know who else is growing? Ranger boy! Our little fuzzball is practically a full grown pup now and it’s officially hard to remember life without him in it.
So here’s to summer. Here’s to climbing and swinging, dancing and eating and growing. May we soak in every precious moment of it before the first leaf falls.
