So summer is in full bloom and I feel like I’m burning the candle at both ends because I don’t want to miss a second of its magic. I’m having way too much fun.
A few days ago I saw the most beautiful spider I’ve ever seen. Right outside my front window. She was there for three days in a row. I loved staring through the glass at the beauty.
Now don’t get me wrong – Normally I loathe spiders – they give me the Hebe-Jebes. But this one was enchanting. I’ve never seen one so pure White, even the legs.
She never let me get too close and would always scurry to the underside of my hydrangea flowers if I got to near. But wow, she was pretty.
I haven’t seen her for a few days and I really miss her.
I’ve been also having too much fun with my wood burning tool. Who cares if my hair smells as if I’ve just sat around a campfire.
I made my first outdoor fairy door and hid it in a local park. Hopefully little children can grow their imaginations. I’m praying no trolls find it and decide to destroy my little offering. I made a tutorial on how to make one HERE if your interested in making one for your imagination.
I’ve also been going as often as possible to the local Farmer’s Market. It seems like the turn out to our local community market goes down every year, even though there is so much to see. I’m hoping it doesn’t go away.
This donut fed 5 of us - it was that enormous. Plus Free Kids Crafts, great art finds… And the bells, well they were a free gift from the fused glass artist because my girls enthralled him with their friendliness.
And the flowers. I have to pinch my pennies so that every couple of weeks I can brighten my home. $5 for flowered sunshine that lasts double the time the supermarket flowers last.
And we always love taking a trip to the local swimming hole at the river’s edge. Yes, it’s a river and my girls are wearing life jackets for Mom’s peace of mind.
Seems like Hope has taken after me. My childhood was spent swinging from the vines of my backyard willow tree. I have a feeling that this daughter is going to inherit my fearless, mad tom-boy skills.
So summer – Please slow down. There’s so much to do, see, explore, craft, and enjoy. You are passing by way to quickly.
