Status Report: June

Sitting…in my favorite spot on the couch in the livingroom.

Drinking…my before bed cup of mint tea.

Feeling…tired after a full day spent with the grandchildren. We went to the pond, the park, played in the backyard, and ate our lunch outdoors. All three sat in the wagon on the way to the park, what one woman we passed called “a wagon full of cute.” Yep, that’s exactly what they are. 

Also feeling…disappointed I slept through the earthquake this morning

Enjoying…my blossoming May Day tree, although since the tree lost several big branches in a windstorm last year, it is not as glorious as it once was. Still, this is one of my favorite times of the year.

Waiting…for the seeds to sprout in the garden. I’ve scaled back on the gardening front this year and only planted about 1/4 of what I usually plant. A couple varieties of lettuce, spinach, carrots, kale and broccoli—and that’s it.

Hoping…to use the time saved on the gardening front to accomplish a few home painting projects. I’m also hoping for extra time to just relax and enjoy the summer.

Learning…about kefir. My son got some kefir grains from a friend and has been culturing (Is that the right word?) milk at my house. I’m not sure how I feel about the finished product. Perhaps it’s an acquired taste.

Still reading…this book, and I’ve been reading it for five months now, I think. At least I’m on the last chapter now. I hope to review it when I’m through, but I’m not even sure how to review such a long and complicated book.

Looking…at the sky. Two weeks and a few day until the longest day of the year, so the sun’s still above the mountains streaming in the westward windows, and the sky is bright blue with tall cumulus clouds. The late night sun is another reason this is a favorite time of the year. If only our summer weren’t so short … .

Reminding…myself of tonight’s frost warning. As soon as I post this I’ll go bring the potted tomato plants indoors for the night.

Wishing…you and yours a blessed June.

Aren't wagons the greatest thing for toddlers? We loved ours. Perfect for kids who want to walk a ways and ride a ways.

I love wagons. The wagon we had for my kids got used in so many different ways. For transportation, for play, to hold newspapers when they had paper routes.
