A week of weeks. The weather has been pretty grand, what with warm (maybe just a little too hot) days and cool nights. Stuff is growing at rapid speed and the world is in full bloom all the colors. I was sitting on the porch yesterday afternoon when it really hit me. It's summer, like for real SUMMER. I need to start doing more of the summer things.
And to top it off, today is Fathers Day (Happy Day to you Dad, I'll call you later and I owe you some cake or something)
As for the happening around here, nothing to crazy, well maybe a little. First off, the allergies this year are killing me and I have been in a semi permanentstage of snot nose, puffy eyes, and heady weridness all week. It's getting old so hopefully it's going to stop soon. Everyone is in full summer swing and we have been jumping around from here to there, babysitting, making dinner, helping out with things(I am the best). I picked up the second farm share of the year which was laden with so many greens that I pretty much have been eating only green all week. Oh, and talk about me being the best. The mr ( he is the best too) and I took Barb out for a few hours of driving and he taught her (and pretty much retaught me) how to parallel park. The next day she went and got herself a real drivers license.(hooray!) Another sister to bring us coffee during the day! (HA) We also finally got the last of the windows in and installed them at the new house which is pretty freaking fantastic. I am so in love with this house but am at the point with the house now where I am done working on it and just want to live there. Not happening yet, few more moths....
Today I think the mr and I are going to find a cure little stream where he can fish and I can read and ponder with my feet dangling in the water. You know, start doing summer stuff. And a bike tire, I need to get a bike tire ASAP. I have been riding around town with the tread of the tire duck taped on the tube (Shut up I know)
