Summer Bliss

Things I love about summer...
  • fresh blackberries on my cereal
  • drying my kids off after they have insanely been jumping in the Arctic waves of the Pacific Ocean (I totally did the same thing as a child)
  • pulling weeds
  • picking blueberries (the easiest of the NW berries to pick - natural shade, no stooping & no thorns)
  • watching dragonflies and butterflies dance in the flowers
  • napping on the beach
  • the sunsets
  • barbecued corn on the cob
  • wearing sunglasses & flip-flops
  • sunlight until 10 p.m.
  • nothing on t.v. worth watching (both a love and a hate)
  • ice cream cones
  • hiking Powell Butte with my family
  • ice tea
  • watching my husband mow the lawn
  • the stars

I love backpacking, camping under a canopy of stars, homemade ice cream, popsicles, flip-flops, sprinkers, the hum of the oscillating fan in my bedroom window and the anticipation of a completed treehouse.

I have been enjoying your blog. Perhaps it will inspire me. In the words of my sister-in-law, "You have a gift in the way you use words." Thanks for sharing!

I think my favorite part is all the light. I'll take long days over long nights anytime.

I'm also looking forward to getting back so I can have some of your blackberries. So save some for me.
