Today is June 4th, 2017
The weather is partly cloudy, windy and warm. Expecting some rain but probably won’t get it. The clouds are not close enough to give us rain.
Life is good. I’m in a season of busyness but not too bad. It’s enough to keep my mind occupied but not overwhelmed. These seasons are good and serve a purpose as do all seasons of life we walk through.
We survived the theater production of “Peter Pan and Wendy.” Our children are involved in a local student-run theater group. I oversee the meals and snacks for tech week and the shows. It’s exhausting but I have fabulous help from involved parents and love being around these kids, ages 5-25. Our daughter was prop manager this show and our son helped with the backstage crew. Yes, it’s a family affair. As it ought to be, in my opinion.
My garden is finally planted. We are growing squash, cherry tomatoes, green beans, Anaheim chile peppers, green bell pepper, jalapeno, basil, lime basil, lavender and rosemary. I hope to add another lavender plant as well as thyme and chocolate mint. We also planted flowers in some pots and I can’t wait for them to bloom. Do you have a garden? What do you grow?
Summer is practically here. Do you travel? Do you spend days at the pool? Do you have a reading agenda? We keep our summers low key since we do most of our traveling in fall and spring. But this summer is proving to be busier than usual by filling up with graduations, baby showers, birthday celebrations, another theater production (in which our daughter is acting in this time), a 3 week visit from a family friend, and a few other things. We are hoping to get in some family tennis matches and view some new movie releases, too. Summer is not my favorite season due to the heat YET I love the family things we do close to home.
My craft project for the next couple of weeks is to finish a baby quilt for our pastor’s wife. She is expecting a baby girl so, of course, pink is overrunning my dining room table. I am excited to be quilting again. And I am even more excited to bless their baby girl with a pretty blanket. Do you quilt? Or make blankets?
Healthwise, I am enjoying my walks outside. I have to go earlier with the sun making it too warm to walk later. I am opting to listen to audio books while walking instead of music. I get to “read” books which is not always something I find time to do. What are you reading?
I am thankful for plants to nurture and grow, for birthdays to celebrate life, for the ability to learn something new and for tacos!
