Summer Is Busy
I have been one very busy mama, and that means I rarely sit down in the Summer months. There is so much happening with our family, and all really fun and exciting stuff.
Summer is one of my favorite times. The warmer weather means we head outdoors as a family and rarely see the inside of the house until the sun goes down. I have been tending the vegetable garden, we have potatoes growing, broccoli, celery, carrots, tomatoes, bell peppers, watermelon, and lettuce. We also planted two pear trees that will be growing Anjou and Seckel Pears. I have been to the strawberry fields twice, and made 24 jars of strawberry jam which I have handed out to close friends, neighbors and family. I froze a couple of bags for jam making and desserts later in the year.
I have been busy inside as well, our home office is getting a makeover with new furniture and paint, we have new couches arriving very soon, and a new patio going in. So, there is lots on the agenda. Later in July, there will be blackberries to pick, farmer’s markets to go to, the boys 6th birthday, and lots more in between.
I hope to have some really cool news to share later this Summer, but until then, tell me what your Summer plans are?
