I love summer. I always miss it when it's gone; and pine for it until it comes around again.
Here are a few stats from my summer:
49 batches of my home made potato salad (well, maybe not THAT many. But it was a lot!)
2500 bales of hay, and counting.....
1 new kitten, "Spook"
1 new puppy, "Dodge"
0 fish caught, for my part; though I did try
110 quarts of my own home grown produce that I canned myself (Not including the ones we already ate.....)
60 + days of record setting heat over 90 degrees
2 bffs moving far, far away
1 beloved Grandmother passing on
7 nieces and nephews living nearby to play with and watch grow up
3 awesome musicals my niece Abigail performed in
0 good books read. Bad, BAD!
1 trip to Michigan
0 work done on the kitchen remodel....grrrrrrr
0 camping trips. Too hot!
1 piano set to rights, finally
Not enough time horseback riding
8 hours at the Karen and David O'Connor eventing camp in Lexington, VA!
Not enough family get togethers
2 beloved horse buddies we said goodbye to
Three months-(ish) of living in my own personal paradise!
Now, if it would just cool down a little bit, so it could feel like autumn.
Y'all come back now, 'hear?
