Visiting the coast
Spending time with friends and family
Spending time with my beloved grandparents
Eating yummy foods and hiking around where I grew up
Welcomed home by our lovely grandbabies, animals and ginormous WEEDS, then back into the swing of things like gardening and school preparations.
Canning and school are beginning simultaneously this year, it seems!
But for now, I want to record some of our summer garden bounty.
(So I can look back over winter and know summer will come again!)
Sauteed veggies and chicken over spaghetti squash- yum!
Zucchini bread and cookies,
I was still in my jammies, or I'd have let the Man of the House put me in the picture for size reference. : )
Zucchini and Dill
Cabbage and Cantaloupe
Tomatoes growing and baby broccoli
Pickling cukes starting to come in!
I may be tired of the heat and ready for cooler weather, but I truly LOVE summer and am so very grateful for what the earth provides.
