July is coming quickly, and that means our summer is speeding by and the days are already getting shorter again. I’m glad I also really love fall!
I know I’m as behind on summer yard and garden work as ever, but for some reason I feel differently about it this year. Instead of rushing through the garden and trying in vain to keep up, I’m enjoying my time there more. I still don’t like weeds, but I’m appreciating the healthy rows of vegetables and the flowers blooming in bright nooks and corners around the yard. I suppose it also helps that I’ve been taking time to douse myself in bug spray before I tackle weeding or watering in the evenings!
Here’s a little look around.
Of course we’ve been busy making hay and farming, and those things must come first. It’s beautiful to watch the sun set over a hay field as the trucks and chopper work together to harvest the green rows.
Summer can make for long hours, but that doesn’t mean we never get away. I’m a devoted Twins fan, and we got to spend a gorgeous afternoon with friends last week watching the Twins play baseball. I think this is the first time JR and I have been to a game at Target Field where they actually won. It was bound to happen eventually, right?!
I hope you are also finding a good mix between work, fun, and projects this summer. What do you hope to get accomished before September?
