This Is Summer

this is summer
hot and free
hammocks and swings
swimming and reading
laughing and playing
'til late at night



this is summer
happily singing
warm winds blowing
thunder and lightning
picking berries in the rain



this is summer
picnics and campfires
bees and burgers
garden-fresh fruit
dripping down your chin




this is summer
bright stars winking
birds all chirping
family chattering
joy overflowing

this is summer

In July...

Well, it's been about 6 months since I last did this...I'm including some stuff from June

I baked...
  - zucchini bread
  - banana bread
  - chocolate chip cookies
  - snickerdoodles

I read...
  - the entire Little Britches series (by Ralph Moody), which I actually started in June, but finished last night! It includes:
      - Little Britches
      - Man of the Family
      - The Home Ranch
      - Mary Emma & Company
      - The Fields of Home
      - Shaking the Nickel Bush
      - The Dry Divide
      - Horse of a Different Color

I watched...
  - Thor: The Dark World
  - Napoleon Dynamite
  - Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
  - Hoodwinked

I also...
  - performed Fiddler on the Roof 4 times
  - went to Kids Swiss Kamp for 1 1/2 days
  - gained several followers on my blogs
  - made several sales in my shop
  - re-listened to nearly all of the Ceiling Fan Podcast episodes
  - re-listened to the Green Ring Conspiracy (an Adventures in Odyssey album)

It's been a great month! I can't believe it's already August, but I guess we all say that every month!
10-4, over and out!
