School's out! Grades are in, files sorted, desks cleaned out. I even had time to send some material for printing and laminating for next year! Now it's time to play!
The sun returned this week. The three munchkins above, along with a parent or two and yours truly, went raspberry picking at a U-pick farm yesterday. Such lovely big juicy berries. I didn't get any as we have enough with our own canes here. And I forgot to take my camera along, so there are no photos of little ones reaching up to pick and then plop fat berries into containers.
Sunshine and water are the perfect summer combination. Nana filled the pool. Mister F waded in wearing socks and pants, so we let him stay that way. He minded not a whit. The girls poured, splashed, slid, and screamed. We followed up with lunch and homemade fudgesicles on the deck. Ahh, summer.
This morning I wandered out to the garden, enjoying the freedom of not having to be anywhere at a particular time. I filled my breakfast bowl with blueberries and attempted to take a photo. The light was so pretty, all dappled and clear.
I crouched down. Just as I clicked the camera button, the sprinkler system came on and water sprayed onto my legs. Shock! Hence the swing of the lens cover.
The light wasn't quite so great here, but I didn't get any wetter. I added some cottage cheese and chopped nuts to the berries and enjoyed them with tea.
Now what? Oh, there's a lot list of things to do. We leave for London and Paris on Saturday. House sitters are coming. Cleaning needs doing. Packing. Last minute shopping. Paying bills. So, I'm off to start ticking things off my very long list. Catch you later.
