Whew…let me catch my breath long enough to do what will probably be more of a photo post than anything.

Folks, summer is here. The temps are scorching, the garden is IN, and the summer festivities (Youth Camp, anyone?) are upon us.

My posting may be a bit scarce over this summer, regretfully. I think the garden will be the main reason. I normally blog in the early mornings and I’m afraid that during that time, I will be pickin’ and grinning.

Here are a few things we have been doing:

I hope you will stop by for a visit this summer! I love to hear from each of you and visit your blogs. Today is Sunday and I must rest (husband’s orders…:o) and recuperate from a week of Youth Camp late hours!

Later, Tater! :) (Sorry, but I’ve sure been digging a lot of potatoes….it’s affecting my speech even. :)


  1. Looks like a great time. We have our small garden in now to,I have been busy working on the old flower gardens getting them back up to where they should be. Lots of work but very worth it.

  2. Looks like pure summer and camps are coming for us. Ethan (My oldest gets to go as a camper for the fisr time) we usually go to work.

  3. Summer IS a busy time, especially when ya live in the country! I'm still fighting a sticky kitchen after all that FRUIT last week!

    Looks like you and yours are having a good (and busy) time in the garden. Loved the pics of the horses... such a pretty area you live in. It's still GREEN (not so in Texas)!

    Happy Summer, mama!
