"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.".
~ John Lubbock

Well happy summer everyone. It was officially summer at 12:45 am June 21. We spent the weekend camping on my friends land in celebration of the summer solstice. He has had this same party every solstice for the last 30 years. It has been a big part of my husbands life and now Violet and I share this with him and the rest of the family. We look forward to it all year. Our time was spent, hanging out, swimming, playing music, and playing horseshoes. I was so busy having fun that I took not one picture. Oops.


Today I spent the morning working in the garden. I harvested my lavender and our squash. We have a rocking garden this year. So far there has been no shortage of yellow squash and my fav, zucchini. We put a lot of work into it this spring so it has been very rewarding to be able to harvest our own veggies. Wahoo!!!
