Summer is finally here for us. We’ve been busy in the garden, at the park, in the forest and at the beach. Miss Joy’s first time playing in the ocean resulted in her having the longest, deepest sleep. She loves water and went out of her mind with happiness that she could fling herself into this never ending water.
I’m happy in the garden this year. It’s the first summer that I haven’t had a baby, new child, or been trying to get a child home. It feels good. The garden looks better than it ever has and is producing more. Peas that are five seconds off the vine before being eaten are amazing. Basil that is still warm from the sun is fragrant. Salad greens are delicate and buttery.
PS. Teaser for my next post. We are going to talk about pee.
