A little bit of summer

FINALLY

and I am NOT complaining but we had a long stretch of rain gray weather and I am so so glad we have had sun for a day or two. It's supposed to cloud back up next week so we are in "live summer while summer is here" mode. We played at a creek half of the day, stopped bought local veggies, came home, had a fire, roasted meat on sticks and gooey marshmallows too. Almost perfect day. Husband says I am burned, but that can't be true I never burn, boy am I itchy. HA!

 These are the days of summer, I am loathe for them to end, yet I am so exhausted, I need to sleep. The sun is behaving a bit more normally and going down at 10:30 instead of 11:45 which is nice. It means I can finish off the day, hit bed and not feel like a slacker because the damn sun is STILL shining. I'm more rested and so the days are more pleasant.

 I took my camera out wandering around tonight at sunset and it was so warm and nice out. I wanted to grab up the glowing orange sunset and share it. I'm afraid these pictures do it no justice at all.











Peace and Love--

  2. Nothing like roasted meat on sticks followed by roasted marshmallows. That's a balanced diet right there: balance fun days with rainy ones.

    I am amazed when forced to go to Florida how the sunset time varies (I never see sunrise). In winter, it's 2 to 3 hours later than here; in summer, it's a little earlier. I do love the long summer days!
