Summer in full swing

I've been having a hard time keeping up with the old blog lately, haven't I? Life is full and busy, summer is in full swing, and, before yesterday, I hadn't had a day to fill exactly as I choose in awhile. The thing is, of course, that I want to be here.

I'm eager for the time for summer recipes, and garden pictures, and the return of What I'm Wearing Wednesday. Those things will come. The craziness of "summer in full swing" has subsided a little this week, and I'll looking forward to the space and stillness. You need that space and stillness for important summertime activities. Picking blueberries. Picking aphids. Eating cole slaw for lunch, ice cold, right from the bowl.

It felt so good yesterday just to wallow, a little. To stay in bed until ten, all three of us.

To take a long, quiet walk in a pretty green place. Hadn't done that in awhile.

My favorite Sunday tradition, writing the week's meal plan, was helped along with farm stand cabbage and tomatoes, and zucchini from my mom's garden (thanks mom!).

The incredible heat has finally broken, making a patch of sun on the floor actually a desirable place to be for Pete and Diesel.

Dinner was zucchini pancakes, cole slaw, and ice cold Belgian beer. It was a sweet and restorative sort of day.

The main event of the weekend was a baby shower for my friend Stephanie. I'll share pictures and links to recipes tomorrow.

I know just what you mean about needing quiet and stillness. Looks as if you two made good use of down time.
