playing games and running outside and making summery treats (rice krispie bars, icecream with fruit, anything grilled, etc...)
getting freckly and tan(ish) lying on the hot slats of our deck
reading books all afternoon
having random dance parties to Marry You and We Are Young (which just came on pandora and I am now jamming to it) and Lakehouse
stopping by walmart to pick up fishing gear
painting our toenails pinks and purples and blues
eating fruit until it comes out of our ears
and subsequently finishing off a whole watermelon in a day
making lists and prepping for next week
watching our sweet neighbor baby emma
her squishy face! oh my. i can't handle her squishy face.
drinking tea and coffee and homemade lemonade
so mostly just summery stuff
which is fine by me.
we've also been getting ready for woodland
which has kept us busy
in a good way.
i'm a bit tired because i went to bed late and
i've been getting up at 5:30 every morning (okay...ALMOST every morning)
i work out for an hour and then have breakfast.
i luck out because then i get the good food. y'know, big family stuff. ;)
another benefit of getting up early is
being awake just as the sun comes up
i had my Bible time on the porch today,
munching on an apricot and eating blueberries like there's no tomorrow
the sun made dappled patterns on the stone from the leaves
birds were chirping
AND THERE WERE NO MOSQUITOES
it was beautiful
it's been a bit quiet lately
because we have been enjoying the weather
(not the mosquitoes though
at nighttime, the world is teeming with them
evil little monsters)
and doing summery stuff
which is just the best
summer, you may just be my favorite
what have you been up to lately?
