Traveling to Philadelphia for a wedding, hosting two adults, two teenagers, and a dog for a week, my job intensifying, trying to minimize internet time, a husband on call, and a house and yard in need of attention mean posting has been short this month, and will probably continue to be for another week or two.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. We’re fitting in plenty of summer fun as well:

  • Hot mornings swimming at the lake
  • Dinners on the porch
  • Teaching the Man’s sisters and step-mother to shoot
  • Baking
  • Stops at the farm stand
  • Planting fall crops in the garden
  • Frisbee in the yard
  • Reading good books
  • Church and church friends
  • Evening movies on the couch
  • Morning walks
  • Fellowship around the table
  • And, to top it all off, beautifully comfortable weather this week after a brutal month’s heat.


Side note: Has anyone else read Angela’s Ashes? What did you think? I’m usually about ten years behind the crowd reading popular books, finally checked it out of the library, and just finished it. I enjoyed large parts of Frank McCourt’s story and shared several laugh-out-loud bits with my husband, but grardually lost interest as he hit his teens. Any other opinions?
