Hello friends! June is busting out all over, and I feel a little like I have been shot out of a cannon. So far we have already been camping, been on the road to visit family, brought sweet girls back to granny camp, and entertained two sets of family so far with more arriving today. All since Memorial Day weekend!
We arranged an impromptu Brambley Hedge picinic in the park. All that's required is some wicker hampers, colorful quilts, and a hodge podge of sandwiches, fruit, and tea cakes. A relaxing picnic late in the afternoon satisfies all age ranges. Gazing up awhile at the blue sky and swaying leaves under a bit of breeze just soothes the soul.
I introduced my young granddaughters to the singular pleasure of a lunch sandwich wrapped up in waxed paper. Something that they had never heard of from an era before plastic. They especially loved tying them up with the baker's twine.
And snickerdoodles are just as fun to bake with a box mix from the grocery store! Yum!
We have hiked in the cool mountain breezes, checked out the local fishing lakes, and done quite a bit of snail hunting right in our own back yard.
"Every summer, like the roses, childhood returns."
I am even doing some very light summer reading! The Little Beach Street Bakery, by Jenny Colgan. Kerryanne from Shabby Art Boutique introduced me to the author, and reading it it reminds me of being a girl out of school for the summer and visiting the local library every weekend.
Hope you're having lots of your own summer pleasures!
So glad you stopped by!
