What Summer Looks Like

The sun is setting, someone’s for a hot air balloon ride over Niverville, and my hubby’s on the couch, waiting for me to finish blogging so that we can watch the first episode of the Canadian Amazing Race. (He’s sad that he’s not on it – it’s one of his lifelong dreams!)

I could go deep and spiritual here, but there’s something about a golden evening that makes me feel as though the words are few, and all I want to do is enjoy the beauty.

Let’s catch up on some summer photos – the ones I took during the last two months, but couldn’t share with you because I was always writing about favorite things.

So, for everyone who’s up for the deep thoughts I’m chewing on – they are coming. Slowly.

In the meantime, here’s a little bit of what summer is looking like around here:

We have decided to only have salads or something barbequed for meals around here. I wish I could leave my oven off until September.

I am waiting for my next chance to shop at the farmers market. Maybe tomorrow??

We’re spending more time at the lake than we have before. (Not counting when we lived by it. We weren’t vacationing then!)

Our garden is growing like mad by now. I run out to pick lettuce, and feel like we’re all “living off the land”.

The girls keep going to bed later and later, because nobody wants to go inside on these beautiful evenings.

What are you soaking in this summer?

  1. Lettuce, lettuce and more lettuce! I love picking it and sending the kids to pick it. We eat it everyday. Also picking sugar peas, zucchini and the occasional tomatoe and pepper – trying to use fresh veggies each supper time. LOVE it! Our kids also go to bed ridiculously late each night – just too lovely outside to be in bed. I think I can actually think more about enjoying the summer when this wedding is over and I can stop sewing (though I do enjoy it, I cannot do it outside, soaking in the sun). Next week we get loads and loads and loads of dirt in the yard here and I am thrilled at being able to do some landscaping! And I, too, watched the Amazing Race Canada on Monday. I keep thinking Jay and I could do it since we built a house together – anything else should be simple, right??!! 😉

  2. I’m growing my first tomatoes ever!! I’ve had one ripe one so far so when they all ripen they’ll be gone in a heartbeat:) love your pictures.
