of course, there have also been tears of frustration, nearly a third of the basket of peaches were covered in fuzzy black mold after I ignored them for a mere day and a half (okay, note to self: if you live in a temperate rain forest (so they say) and you buy a basket of peaches and plan to keep them in your not air-conditioned kitchen..... tend to the little suckers immediately!), and for some reason my personal patience reserve has been not quite adequate lately.
but still..... it's summer. and it's a sweet one.
all I've got to show for all the aforementioned goodness is that photo of some nettles and a dead luna moth- both prizes from our waterfall hike. the nettles went into a quart jar to tincture and the luna moth was added to her nature table.
soon, a canoe trip, a bounce house party, and a backpacking trip. but I think tomorrow we'll stick with lazy reading and gardening, some peach canning, and a trip back to the pool with papa so she can show off her new skills and work on getting even closer to being a true little fish.
I hope summer is being good to you~ rotten fruit, tears of frustration, swimming holes, bonfires, family vacations (possibly gone awry), and all. cheers!
