For the record, we have dived into the laziness of summer with ease. The younger boys have been playing games and digging in earnest in the backyard, helping me with the garden. My oldest is often found reading. We are sleeping a bit later than usual and start most of our days with nothing planned. It feels like a small gift after the hurried end of the school year. Yesterday the youngest and I went to the pool three times to swim. Yes, three times. Bliss.....
The bounty of mother nature's harvest is also a gift. For the past year we have belonged to a CSA(community supported agriculture) that delivers a little nature in our home every week. The box arrives once a week in the early morning hours and it always feels like Christmas when the boys bring it in to open. Who knew that three scrappy boys could be so excited about vegetable boxes? When we opened up this latest one, I really could see the full arc of the seasons. We are in full throttle summer mode with the vegetables and I am not remorseful to say that we ate up everything in the box within a day of its arrival.
It was a beautiful gift for our bellies.
A nourishing gift for our bodies from the Summer Sun.
post script: our house is a heavenly mess.
nothing has changed there, just more boys home to make more messes all day. xxoo
p.p.s. linky lo with Lou.
