We are in high summer. The blogosphere is quiet and I too am finding it hard to sit in front of the computer, lured by rewarding promises of life outdoors. I am so curious about what y’all are doing. What magic is finding you in the long blue of twilight?
Speaking of rewards, here are some from the weekend, as well as some backlogged pics of our daily adventures.
We picked a few plums.
Harvested the first potatoes.
Went blackberry picking on Bernal Hill. (Thanks for the reminder to check, Shaners!)
Some other visions from our time in Shasta County. Oh home. Sweet, sweet HOME.
Mimosa tree. One of my favorites.
An evening walk on the Sundial Bridge. I hated the thing when it was first built, but now I love it.
A gumball for my little gumball. Old Shasta. On our way up to Whiskeytown Lake.
Manzanita. Another favorite, perhaps THE.
Mr. and Mrs. Mallard.
Toddler humor. “That monster has a hungry mouth.”
We brought back my ballet costumes from childhood. She decided to get dressed “For work and go on airplane”.
I don’t know where this kid came from, but I don’t ask questions. I just feel lucky.
Any plans for the Fourth?
Happy Monday. xo
