I've always wanted to keep a good regular record of our comings and goings, and I finally took the example of several of my friends and family and made one for us. Its summer time for school teachers (and that includes me). The past two weeks have been a bit of an adjustment with having no school to make it to every morning, but I definitely keep busy doing everything else. My garden is the most grown it has ever been since I have begun planting a garden. It is amazing what happens when I get my garden in BEFORE school is out for the summer. We have already had vegetables out of it. Hayden is working hardwood, and keeping MORE than busy. I don't know how he does it. I work with him for a weekend and it takes me a week to recover, yet he does it everyday, and most weekends as well. The man is my hero (for many other reasons as well).
This past week the Russian Olive trees have been in full bloom and the smell has been INCREDIBLE. I just love the sweet smell, it reminds me of picnics to my parents' fields as a child. I just can't get enough of it. Nothing is a close to heaven as a warm summer night, just a hint of light in the sky, and the smell of summer in the air.
