A Hint of Summer Vacation

Ah... what a lovely day.

No alarm clock. Instead, I woke with a hug from my daughter, asking for staples. She agreed to the "ten more minutes", and all was well.

After filling her stapler, we headed to the farmers' market. I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love that.... and the fresh vegetables haven't even begun to arrive! We did get some strawberries - half of which I froze for later.

After a quick lunch, I headed out to the garden. The kids each took turns outside - one with water balloons and the other filling a bucket with water and sitting in it.

The boy rode himself to his friend's house, and the girl and I took a few minutes in the hammock together, evaluating the clouds and declaring their "look like"s.

A family walk with the dog and kids on bikes, and showers and dinner around the table.

It's one of those days that I would like to engrave in my memory and on my heart. Some days just flow well.

Thank You, God for the moments, the joy and the beauty of the earth!
